nikos released a first public beta of xplorer² 1.8. Seems to have a bunch of useful improvements.  :)

Mmmm, command finder, that sounds good. That lifetime license might be worth grabbing for the free cosmetic upgrade ;D

Looks like some nifty features being added & there's probably a surprise feature or two still yet unrevealed.

And I agree with Lashiec...there's going to be a for-pay upgrade coming soon for all who are not lifetime license holders. If someone's been on the fence about whether to get a regular or a lifetime license this should push them over the edge towards the lifetime option.

A lifetime license will pay off indeed. A few Euros for infinite improvement.  :-*

NECRO THREAD POWERS, ACTIVATE!

Just a quick question for everyone. How do you feel about the current version of xplorer2 or do you find yourself using another file manager?

I still use x² because DOpus is still not available as a reasonably priced lifetime license.  :P

(Admittedly, I use XY on my Win8 machine as I was too lazy to find my x² key when I set it up.)

Still stuck at the 1.8.x level, as I don't feel like spending money for an update to get exactly the same functionality in the 2.x release. >:(
But I'll keep using it for as long as it's safe :)

I have a lifetime licence for xplorer² PRO, and have the v2.2.0.2 x64 version. It works fine.
The only time I use another Explorer is when I use Windows Explorer to restore all the saved Registry settings for xplorer²! You can't do that whilst xplorer² is running, apparently.
I have found that the xplorer² Registry settings sometimes get expunged - not sure if it is CCleaner or something else doing that. I have lots of Bookmarks in xplorer², and it is a real pain in the proverbial when they are deleted. Restoring them by automating the process is a darn site quicker than recreating them from memory or on an ad hoc basis.

Still using xplorer² PRO.

Was disgruntled to have to pay again when version number jumped to 2 - so I didn't!

Instead used TrialPay (found some daft offer whereby if I signed up at a casino - with false information and a disposable email address - gave me a free license!)

Do you know how to have a new tab open up when launching a folder via the run dialog vice a whole new window? Right now, all requests via the run dialog or an external launcher result in another new xplorer2 window. I got my copy via trialpay as well :) My wife got a game, I got a piece of software to work with.

Yup.

Hint: There's a checkbox during the installation which lets you do exactly that.
