built in supermarionation, v181.16 with new keys and all :party:
www.zabkat.com/xplorer2_setup_beta.exe (32 bit only)

you should all get a free 31(=21+10) day trial, and also you can see if you are entitled to free or discounted upgrades, if you click on 'secure online order' or Help > Register program menu

those of you that are entitled to free upgrade keys, you can get a key that will work for 15 days or so -- please supply a valid email address.

If xplorer2 doesn't offer you a free key then please don't attempt to buy anything yet as keys for v2.0 are still under construction. You should be able to buy before the trial period is over though

the playful among you could try to out-smart the new xplorer2 logic for free trial, keys and free upgrades, to see whether i left any holes in the system or not  :shock:

thanks for reporting any problems

Nikos, you are brilliant!!!!

Floating preview pane - I just couldn't believe it.

I've been busy recently and haven't kept up to date, so only just noticed it.

Thank you very, very much.

This is probably a no-brainer....  How do I turn off the warning message that appears each time I start x2?

Probably not the answer you are looking for, but I use the time-honored utility, Push-The-(Freaking)-Button (Last Freeware Edition: http://www.321download.com/LastFreeware ... st1064.zip)...

you can't turn off that message but it will go away in a couple of weeks with the final release
tip: don't quit x2!

Bah humbug!  I always prefer when those types of popups can be disabled...

Interestingly, on Vista it appears (upon re-launch) whether x2 has been "exited" or "closed."  However on XP it only appears after x2 has been "exited."

RE Wperkins:  Thanks for the tip!  :)

Hmm, startup (loading previously loaded folders) takes quite some time... I guess that's a known issue?
The folder I want to show first only contains 5 files...

BTW:
If you bought xplorer² more than 2 years ago you'll need a new purchase.
"Lifetime", anyone?

my accountant says you already cached in on your lifetime license, so what's the problem?

I was just curious if this also applies to lifetime licensees.
My license was upgraded successfully... :)

(So far, thanks for the great new look&feel. I wonder how I could live without all that docking!)

runs like charm, maybe a bit slow when starting, but that's tolerable (espec. on a Beta version)

BUT: the fact that admin privs are needed to run the license manager - it's a real pain.

PLEASE - no special privileges to enter a license key!!
