Software Update: Total Commander 7.50 Beta 3

Christian Ghisler released the third beta release of version 7.50 of Total Commander on Thursday. This program can be used as a replacement for Windows Explorer. Splitting the image in half makes it easy to copy files, but the program can do much more. There are various ways to modify files, there is a built-in ftp client and a multi-rename tool and there is support for a large number of compression formats. Furthermore, the functionality can be extended with plugins.

New in version 7.50 is, among other things, that the ftp passwords can be protected with an aes256-encrypted master password, the individual folders in the address bar are clickable (‘breadcrumbs’) and the internal archive unpacker can now also be used with multi-volume rar files and handle rar files with a password. The complete overview with the changes since version 3.00 can be found in this text file are being found. The main changes in this third beta are summarized for you below:

The most important new functions are:

  • FTP connect dialog: Allow to rename/move folders via “Edit” button
  • Allow to limit width of breadcrumb dropdown list
  • Allow to abort opening of breadcrumb subdir or virtual folder if it takes too long
  • Vista 64bit: Show pseudo-subdirectory “sysnative” in Windows folder to allow to reach 64-bit system32 directory

A list of additions and corrections, also for previous versions, can be found here.
