Latest FARR Release 2.250.0 beta - Mar 23, 2020

<< < (2/146) > >>

Mousey, after 1 year of alpha status, I don't see how making it public beta ISN'T a huge move. Come on now, it's had one year of HEAVY work, now the public gets to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Still : well done! I've just installed it and it works well.

Should we post comments here?

Ralf Maximus:
Just installed it and gave it a quick spin.  Rookin good!

There is some comfort in knowing that I no longer have an alpha software installed on my development computer even though it was stable and never gave me any issues.

Thanx for the update.

Ok mouser, I'll post my few comments here. You can always move them somewhere else if you want.

These are actually little things I noticed in the last month but forgot to mention -- the beta reminded me of those :

a- The new locate plug-in, when used, slows down farr a bit. Or am I the only one?

A locate32 search from within farr will : 1- take a few seconds to produce some results, 2- and make the transition back to the standard farr search a bit too long too (stalls for a few seconds -- nothing really bad, but it varies depending on how many results you've set the plug-in to disclose).
[it depends on the quantity of results displayed --2007 12 29 ]

b- Also, and  I know that this is not farr per se, but the locate32 plug-in doesn't play well with accents (é è à, etc.).

c- Which brings me to this question: if you're going to keep the locate plug-in as an "official" one, do you believe that it would be possible to have it use the same (or similar) search conventions than the "regular" farr ones (e.g. : non contiguous characters etc....)? It might be a pretty hard to do, but it would make more sense.

2- Maybe that has been mentioned before : farr finds but cannot launch a file if it has a space as the last character of its name
(e.g. : E:\Doct\xLC-.Moreno,Jacob L.__Théâtre de la spontanéité__+tgsPat tgsPthée+ .doc)

3- There still seems to be a problem with certain characters and folder names. I'm not 100% sure, but it seems to be related to the "É" character (only?). i.e. : each time one my folder names uses the É character, farr won't display the subfolders and files it contains.

And here are 2 extra ideas for the future :

- Select and launch multiple files at once
- Sort by date/name etc. with column headers.

Thanks mouser!
