We have been working heavily to get Scalos 41.4 released on October, 16th.

These are the major new features available in 41.4:

+ Optional drop menu allows comfortable selection of copy, move, or create-link operation.
+ Optional icon images for all popup menus.
+ Added single-window lasso mode, with scrolling window contents. This mode is invoked by dragging mouse with configurable qualifier key.
+ Backfilled thumbnail icons, with selectable color and transparency.
+ Lifetime of cached thumbnail icons is now individually configurable for each drawer. Lifetime may now be set to "forever".
+ Option to always generate square thumbnail icons.
+ Scaled background images without guigfx.library.
+ New parameter options "%w" and "%d" for menu CLI commands.
+ Filetype-specific preview (=thumbnail) generation plugin system. Standard defpicture.pvplugin behaves exactly like previous build-in thumbnail generation.
+ New jpegpicture.pvplugin thumbnail generator for JPEG images. Thumbnails are generated 2 to 3 times faster than with default thumbnail generator.
+ Windows are now updated immediately when drag-drop copying icons, moving icons, or creating links.
+ Borders around tooltip bubbles are now drawn with antialiasing (GFX card required).
+ New user setting to always apply popup menus to every selected icon, regardless of qualifier.
+ Selectable transparency for tooltip bubbles.
+ Clicking into startup splash window causes it to close immediately.
+ Cached thumbnail SQL tables are initialized each time the database is opened, so the thumbnail database can be safely renamed or deleted anytime, and Scalos creates new database next time a drawer is opened.

And of course, lots of bugs have been fixed, as always Smile

Best Regards,
