■ xplorer² v5.4 released, codename Kaw-Liga

xplorer² shell property system predated the "proper" windows property system introduced with Vista (and finalized with Windows 7) by a good 10 years, so it was getting kind of rusty. The latest version 5.4 is a big rewrite of xplorer² property base, so that shell properties like MP3 ID3 tags (song duration, bit rates etc) and photo EXIF properties are quick to work with in all respects. Shell property caching also applies to [X]tended legacy column handlers and WDX plugins, thus shell properties are as usable as xplorer² own [S]tock properties. Whenever you show lots of file details, or sort, filter and search for advanced properties, you will immediately notice the speed difference.

There are a few floating-point number properties like System.GPS.LatitudeDecimal that are now properly handled as such (this is an ultimate edition feature). So now you can do photo searches by GPS coordinates, similar to DeskRule's map searches. Floating point properties are also possible from certain WDX content plugins.
