Changelog

4.14

  • NEW: Calculate better looking, alternating list colors instead of relying on wxPython to provide.
  • NEW: Linux now uses the same autocomplete logic in autocomplete combo boxes that Windows and macOS uses. This removes a workaround that required Linux to use different logic. The actual issue has been resolved in wxPython 4.1.
  • FIX: Notifications should work better on Windows.
  • FIX: On some Linux systems, the down key, while one of the autocomplete combo boxes have focus, will cause the cursor to jump to a widget below the current and then process the on_key_up event which is meant to trigger the drop down history of the prior autocomplete combo box.
  • FIX: Latest wxPython changes made escape not close the autocomplete combo boxes.
  • FIX: Different Linux Desktop Environments need different size icons to show up properly in their taskbar, provide an icon bundle to ensure there is always one of appropriate size.
  • FIX: Use wcmatch 7.0 which includes a few bug fixes.

4.13

  • NEW: Drop growl notification support.
  • FIX: Replace macOS rocket dock icon and Window's default Python task bar icon with Rummage icon.
  • FIX: On color change, macOS would reset time picker values.

4.12

  • NEW: Add new option to use ! instead of - for exclusion patterns. Rummage has always used - due to issues with distinguishing between exclusion patterns (!exclude) and extended globbing exclude patterns (!(exclude_1| exclude 2)). wcmatch 6.1 now resolves this by requiring ( to be escaped if the pattern starts with !( and it is not meant to be an extended glob pattern !(..).
  • NEW: Require wcmatch 6.1 that comes with a number of enhancements and bug fixes.
  • NEW: Proper support for system color changes. Allows proper transitioning on macOS between light and dark mode.
  • FIX: Minor fixes to selection colors in regex tester.
  • FIX: Remove old macOS workaround to force focus on search input.
  • FIX: Officially support Python 3.8.

4.11.1

  • FIX: Internal color fixes.
  • FIX: Fix Rummage crashing with wxPython 4.1.X due to image sizing bug on macOS.
  • FIX: Resolve issue where changelog would not show after an update.

4.11

  • NEW: wcmatch the file search library that Rummage uses, is now at version 6 which imposes a pattern limit to protect against patterns such as {1..1000000} which would expand to a large amount of patterns if brace expansion is enabled. Rummage exposes control of this.
  • FIX: By using wcmatch version 6, complex issues involving pattern splitting with | and {,} are resolved.
  • FIX: Fix logo not loading in about dialog.

4.10

  • NEW: Pattern save dialog now uses a drop down list so you can easily update an existing saved pattern.
  • FIX: Fix issue with web view rendering and pymdown-extensions.

4.9

  • NEW: Require wcmatch 5.1.0+, bracex 1.4.0, and backrefs 1.3.0 to include latest bug fixes.

4.8

  • NEW: Supports installing extras via pip install rummage[extras].
  • FIX: Fix for notification sound display in settings dialog.
  • FIX: Fix notification sound not playing on Linux when configured.

4.7.1

  • FIX: Require wcmatch 5.0 and make adjustments to support it.

4.7

Warning

Backrefs 4.2.0 has deprecated the shorthand references for alphabetic character groups in re search patterns: \l, \L, \c, and \C. Instead you should use: [[:lower:]], [[:^lower:]], [[:upper:]], and [[:^upper:]] respectively. While the references have only been deprecated, and are technically still available, a future version of Backrefs will remove them entirely at some point. It is recommended to transition now so as not to be caught unawares.

  • NEW: Add col0 variable for editor configuration to allow for using a zero based column value instead of one based column value for editors that require it.
  • NEW: Add global option to turn off alternating row colors in lists.
  • NEW: Provide support for different players on Linux: paplay, aplay, and play (sox). Supported sound formats vary.
  • NEW: Provide interface for selecting custom notification sounds.
  • NEW: Require wcmatch 4.3.1+ and backrefs 4.2.0+.
  • FIX: Better attempt to get appropriate file creation time on all Linux systems.
  • FIX: Better fix for time picker getting wrong background.
  • FIX: Ensure column sizing includes header size.
  • FIX: When showing timed status event for results in status bar (full path name), decrease length of time that the temporary status is shown and clear temporary status when the cursor leaves result items.
  • FIX: Don't log handled notification errors when a notification system is not found as these are handled gracefully and there is no need to worry the user.

4.6.3

  • FIX: Notification audio failures should be handled gracefully.
  • FIX: Sometimes abort doesn't work.

4.6.2

  • FIX: Fix issue where time control used a completely different font and font size.

  • FIX: Fix issues with time control not properly inheriting system colors.
  • FIX: Fix time control sizing on Linux.
  • FIX: Fix time control issue on Linux and macOS that prevents decrement button from decrementing past initial value.

4.6

  • NEW: Search options and file limit options can be collapsed in the main dialog. This allows hiding these options if you aren't frequently using them, and provides a more compact dialog.
  • NEW: There is no longer an option to hide the file limit options as now you can just collapse them.
  • NEW: Added context menu option to allow reordering of columns in the result lists. Positions are remembered across sessions.
  • FIX: Fix an issue on Linux where tabbing past a hidden directory button would cause an error in GTK. Ensure such controls do not allow focus when they are hidden.
  • FIX: Fix an internal error where the autocomplete box could throw an error due to the index bounds not being checked.
  • FIX: When list controls are smaller than the window, don't resize last column too an excessively big width.
  • FIX: Fix regression with loading replace plugins.
  • FIX: Better initial focus in autocomplete text boxes on platforms that had issues.
  • FIX: Fix some localization issues.

4.5

  • NEW: Add Match base search option. Match base affects full path patterns when Full path directory match or Full path file match is enabled. When a full path pattern has no slashes, it will cause the pattern to only match the base file name. This allows you to have traditional base match patterns and more specific full path patterns usage simultaneously. Requires wcmatch 4.0 which is now the minimum requirement.
  • FIX: Ensure settings version is upgraded properly.

4.4.1

  • FIX: Increase performance by reducing number of stat/lstat calls during crawls.

4.4

  • NEW: Add the ability to follow symlinks via a new symlink toggle in the limit panel (disabled by default).

4.3.2

  • FIX: Require Backrefs 4.0.1 which includes a number of bug fixes, particularly one that sometimes caused Backrefs not to install properly.

4.3.1

  • FIX: Python file encoding detection should default to the Python 3 assumed default, not Python 2.
  • FIX: Consolidate internal HTML logic and avoid using base 64 encoded images if using latest Markdown extensions that include path conversion fix.
  • FIX: Refresh status less to improve on overall speed.
  • FIX: Simplify status: no need to display ACITVE or DONE as button will change back to Search to signify completion along with the display of the Benchmark or even the notification if enabled.
  • FIX: Ensure single file search with no pattern works like multi-file search with no pattern (just return file).
  • FIX: Minor cleanup and performance increase in core.
  • FIX: When search error dialog is shown from the status bar, fix error with window destruction.

4.3

2.1

  • NEW: Add new chained search feature.
  • NEW: Add new replace plugin support.
  • NEW: Restructure internal API to support chained search.
