New in xplorer² 184.108.40.206:
[P] TC column and preview plugins support (aka content WDX and lister WLX). These extend the file attributes you see in detailed view mode (searchable too), and the quickviewer preview capabilities. There are tons to download from http://totalcmd.net . The easiest way to integrate these plugins in xplorer² is to install them with TC then copy the plugin sections [ContentPlugins] and [ListerPlugins] from WINCMD.INI into a file called TCPLUGINS.INI which should be placed in shell:appdata\zabkat folder (or in the xplorer² installation folder if run from a USB). If you are running the 64 bit version of xplorer² you must use x64 versions of the plugins.
[P] office documents can be natively previewed in zipfolders and other virtual folders
[P] global setting szGrepExcludeTypes is a comma separated list of extensions that can be used to exclude certain document types from filter searching. Also faster IFilter text extraction lookup. Note some TC content plugins can also be used to search for text in files, in case a windows filter is not available.
Mainframe setting DPF_NOHTMLIMG (see updated advanced settings editor) turns off the small thumbnail preview in the details pane. This image is not required if you have the quickviewer turned on for example.
