It's v2.00.108

I just fired up FARR with Ctrl-Space, wrote "FAR" (it's FAR manager :) ) and pressed Enter.

That memory usage: is it just me, or is it normal?

If there is only one result, it's always first, therefore underlined option seems to be redundant.

"Show launch history initially" sounds more correct to me

I think it means that if you don't tick that box, you'd have to press "1" to launch, even though it's a single item.  If you do tick it, you can just press Enter    :tellme:

the last two options are somewhat redundant, in that if you have "always launch first result on hitting enter", then the option "if there is only one result, launch it when hitting enter" is covered by this already, and checking or unchecking this box has no effect, and so should probably be grayed out.

*** BUG REPORT

Using FARR v.2.00.108:

(Very) minor bug in the read-only non-modifiable alias "search": the token for the third entry, AllTheWeb, reads "$$!" when it should read "$$1"

thanks for that, i'll fix in the next distribution.   actually i'd really like some help organizing and adding to the alias files that now come with far if anyone wants to try to improve that i'd welcome it.

i don't quite have the time to search this thread, so i simply report it here:
when using fcalc with "digit keys launch result..." i can't type digits. maybe an option for plugins to turn this behaviour off while they're acitvated (like fc x=5 will work, but when i delete fc from the line i'm still able to launch results with the numbers)

Hi Mouser,

The installer for FARR 2.00.108 is supposed to shut down any running FARR while installing. That didn't work here. It somehow shut down something, but the tray icon stayed and I had to click my way through a ton of access violation and other error popups. I canceled setup then, restarted Windows, exited FARR myself and run the setup.
That's not really a problem, but since it's meant to be a feature, I thought I'd mention this bug.

Cheers,
  Robert

thanks johi, good point about digit keys and plugins. i can certainly fix it so that for plugins that display pure text (like fcalc) instead of results, digit keys are allowed.

rbeeger, thank you for that report, that is troublesome -- has anyone else tried the new setup program that tries to close any running copy of farr and found it works or doesnt?

rbeeger, i just realized that the ability to shut down running copy of farr wont work on older version of farr, just from now on.  can you try running the new installer again while your current new version is running, and see if it can shut it down ok, or if not, if it gives you a warning.

I'm using FARR v2.00.99:
There is a bug, and I did'nt notice after a long time.
It's not finding anything when adding a Search Folder with a negative score

I have added C:\ as a search folder, with the score of -2000.50
It never uses this search folder.

Another thing is that I can't seem to use the star on my keyboard (right side of keyboard).

Not a  bug, but a cosmetic oddity.  When I use the built in alias  "search"  for a phrase in quotes, thus:

search "steph swainston"

what I see in the FARR "command line" is small solid black squares for the double quotes, while in the list beneath it, double quotes appear normally.  Does the font used on the "command line" not contain double quotes?  Or is this a regional issue?

(BTW: Steph Swainston is an author of New Weird novels)

Hi mouser, the ? wildcard does not work for folders, although it works for files.

Is this a bug or supposed to work like this?

Hi Mouser I now installed #116 over #108 and it worked fine. I don't know whether it is possible, but if it is, it would be good if the installer could check whether it can shut down the running FARR instance. In the case that it cannot, it should show some kind of message and request the user to shutdown FARR himself before continuing the installation.
Seeing this flood of errors would probably be a shock for users upgrading from FARR1 to 2.

Cheers,
  Robert

Thanks Robert, that's exactly what's supposed to happen, but it wouldnt be the first time there is a difference between what happens and what's supposed to happen :)

HI. I just installed v116 over v108 and I am happy to report that the FARRfox plugin now works :-)
Thanks Mouser

Version 2.00.116 has been updated as of June 30.
FARR v2 now works with my new Updater utility so now you can automatically install updates.

Vista Users:  It seems i reintroduced the old statusbar bug while adding latest font customization code. I'm working to fix that now.

Vista users rejoice -- use the updater to grab the latest release (2.00.118) which now should display properly on Vista  :up:

Just upgraded to build 118, first for almost 2 months -- nice work as ever, mouser!!

In the plugin manager dialog, the button to GO to plugin webpage does not do anything for either farrfox or fcalc plugins. (FARR 118, Firefox 2.0.0.4). But even if this button did work, it wouldn't accomplish much because the listed web page does not seem to contain any usage info for these plugins. For example it would be good to proclaim the FCalc's ability to assign values to variables for use in subsequent calculations.

To clarify: actually there is a (not useful) web page set for these 2 plugins but the GO button doesn't even go to it on my system (Win 2K SP4, Firefox 2.0.0.4)
