Current version: 1.2 (1215)

 === Version 1.2 === 1200: Submitted to Envato (CodeCanyon). 1205: Added changelog (lol). Minor CSS update on buttons. Prevented direct access to common.php and install.php. 1210: Submission to Envato soft-rejected, adding more documentation. Added documentation in /doc. Small optimizations. 1212: Approved by Envato. Fixed bug where trying to upload a file without actually selecting one hid the form. Fixed a bug where the file override warning in the upload function would show an incorrect or blank name. 1213: Changed link to Revision number now visible by hovering over version number. Changed bottom border on tooltip links to match abbr and be more subtle. 1214: Fixed typo ("755 or 755" instead of "755 or 777") in install.php. Fixed a bug where files with quotes/apostrophes in their names would cause problems. When working with these files, the user would be informed that the file doesn't exist. 1215: Added support for changing the home directory (top of common.php). 1216: PHP4 and early PHP5 now work properly ( they don't have json_encode :( ). Tastydir no longer incorrectly trips some antivirus programs. Fixed a silly "path not defined" problem in common.php. 1217: Fixed a problem where POSIX functions not being available on some Linux systems caused index.php to show up as blank due to a fatal error. Added error_reporting(E_ALL), to make errors easier to identify. 1250: Added two heavily requested features: - unless you're logged in, the top address bar doesn't show the full path, but the relative path. - added previous/next buttons on images for an image gallery-style effect. 1251: Password input in install.php is now an actual password input. When editing files, saving the file no longer closes the dialog, making it more suitable for programmers. 1252: Made all MIME types work properly. 

Known limitations

  • in addition to the standard reserved characters, Tastydir doesn’t allow you to work with files with an ampersand (&) in their filenames. This is because of the way javascript works cross-browser.

Wishlist / to-do

  • multi-upload
  • auto-updater
  • nicer text editor?
