EagleFiler 1.4.10

November 10th, 2009 (EagleFiler)

EagleFiler 1.4.10 is now available. This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • EagleFiler can now capture from Microsoft Exchange mailboxes in Apple Mail.
  • Updated the How can I put my library on my iPhone? section of the manual with a link to the Dropbox iPhone application.
  • You can now double-click an embedded file in the viewer or notes to open it in a separate window for viewing.
  • Improved the instructions for importing mail from Thunderbird.
  • The script for quickly creating new text files from LaunchBar will now let you enter tags as well.
  • If a bug in Mac OS X 10.6 has erased the OpenMeta tags for a file that EagleFiler is importing, it will now look under kMDItemOMUserTags, which Spotlight may have preserved.
  • Deleting a tag now removes it from the shared list of recent tags, so that it doesn’t appear to still be hanging around.
  • Worked around a change in Flock so that EagleFiler can capture from it again.
  • EagleFiler now displays image files according to the orientation information in their metadata (requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later).
  • EagleFiler now writes the tags to kMDItemOMUserTags (and sets kMDItemOMUserTagTime) for compatibility with newer versions of OpenMeta.
  • EagleFiler now gives priority to the org.openmetainfo extended attributes if they’re present and have more recent timestamps. This will make it possible to transition away from keys in Apple’s domain.
  • Added the RecordsListHasAlternatingBackground esoteric preference for people who prefer a solid white background color in the records list.
  • When you ask it to create a new file, EagleFiler no longer replaces / in the filename with -.
  • To avoid confusion with the single-selection case, pressing Return in the records list no longer opens multiple selected records externally.
  • Fixed a bug where the keyboard shortcut for New Record ‣ Plain Text File didn’t work under non-English localizations.
  • Fixed a bug in the URL colorer that prevented some message bodies from being displayed.
  • Fixed a bug that could result in empty tag names after renaming.
  • Worked around a suspected bug in Mac OS X that could prevent EagleFiler from restoring the correct window position and size when opening a library.
  • Fixed a bug where some individual message files didn’t sort properly by title.
  • Fixed a bug with the French localization when creating a new file.
  • Changed the way the Software Update feature finds the downloads folder on Mac OS X 10.5 and later because sometimes the one that Internet Config returned would be invalid or unwanted.
  • Improved EagleFiler’s error handling when it can’t read a metadata backup file due to a disk error.
  • Modernized the code.
