Directory Opus goes beyond the simple file manager metaphor, and offers you a complete replacement for Windows Explorer and many other utility programs for handling FTP, ZIP, viewing files and images, running slideshows and more. It provides you with all this within a user-friendly and fully-configurable environment within which you can access and manage your important data with a minimum of effort. Harness the power of your computer like never before!
Bugs fixed / minor changes:
The Find panel's multiple folder selection system is
now easier to understand. The Remove Folder button now

limited to 10 items instead of growing indefinitely.
The path field at the bottom of the Select
Destination dialog now updates when an item is selected
from the Recent or Favorites drop-downs.

Word where it would open several empty windows if it was
not already running and you launched multiple .doc files
in this way.)

disabled, in FlatView (Grouped) mode items would appear

goes very dark when maximized).

better readability and to make the glow around text more
Text on glass status bars is now more similar to
titlebar text in terms of default color & glow.
Bar graph frames on glass with f=2 are now solid
white instead of black. New arguments f=4 and f=5 force
solid black and white frames, respectively, regardless
New bar graph frame argument f=6 produces an
indented border, the opposite of f=1.
Fix for left-hand, "themed" toolbars on Vista not
adjusting their background when the status bar was

Under Vista, the "View Help" in the Help menu when
on the desktop did not work.
Under Vista, RMB drag no longer incorrectly shows
the no-drag cursor.

Fix for the Folder Tabs background color always
coming from Preferences, whether or not "use system

images that were alpha blended with the background
