23 May 2022

- The sSupport for Windows Vista / Server 2008 has been dropped.
- A folder which has been excluded using /EXCLUDE will no longer be enumerated.
- For EML, EXE and DLL files, the "Author" column now shows available values of the file.
- The /PRINTSHELLCOLUMNLIST parameter now includes all shell properties FileList can handle, not just the columns available for the folder.

2 November 2020
- FileList will no longer calculate extensions for folder names which contain periods.
- The prompt to close FileList when starting without parameters is now written to the error stream.
23 July 2018
- FileList can now include all columns supported by Windows Explorer
- The calculation for the directory level has been adjusted to match the values used in TreeSize. A file which had previously been listed with a directory level of 0 would now show on level 1. This also affects the options /MinLevel and /MaxLevel
- You can now include the summarized information of the targeted directory by using /MinLevel 0 and an attribute filter which would include folders.
- The filter options have been extended and now allow to specify separate /INCLUDE and /EXCLUDE filters.
- Bugfix: Files excluded using /Maxlevel did not count towards the size of their containing folders. They are now taken into account again.
- The product icon for FileList has been updated.
18 June 2018
- Support for Windows XP / Server 2003 has been dropped.
- The column selection has been completely overhauled and enhanced:
- Using the new parameter /USECOLUMNS, you may now specify an explicit list of columns to show. This allows you not only to override the default columns, but also to specify the order in which the columns would appear.
- The parameter /ADDITIONALCOLUMNS replaces the previous option /COLUMNS and may still be used to add view types to the predefined set of columns.
- Increased precision for the allocated size: FileList now handles resident data and modern compression algorithms correctly.
- Using /DATEFORMAT, you can now choose one of several date formats to use with date values. This parameter extends and replaces the /ISO option.
- The /LISTSEPARATOR parameter has been enhanced and now supports the tabulator also. Using /LISTSEPARATOR TAB, the quotes for textual columns will also be omitted.
- With the new parameter /MAXDATE, you may now specify a maximum change date for files. Only files which have been changed before this date will be displayed.
- Improvement: The overall performance has been increased.
- Improvement: Some temporary files are known to have very long, random name endings. These fictitious name endings are no longer considered to be an extension.
- Bugfix: The column "File version" now displays the file version from EXE and DLL files, and no longer the product version. The advantage of the file version is that it typically has more digits and a fixed format, while the product version can be any text.

- With the new parameter /MAXLEVEL you may now specify a maximum directory level to be enumerated.
