EagleFiler 1.8.14

June 10th, 2020 (EagleFiler)

Version 1.8.14 of EagleFiler is now available.

EagleFiler makes organizing and managing your information easy. It lets you archive and search mail, Web pages, PDF files, word processing documents, images, and more. Use it to collect information from a variety of sources. Browse different types of files using a familiar three-pane interface. Organize them into folders and annotate them with tags and notes, or leave everything in one folder and pin-point the information you need using the live search. Since EagleFiler stores its library in Finder format, you can use it in concert with the other tools in your Mac ecosystem.

EagleFiler is a digital filing cabinet, a research assistant, snippet collector, and document organizer. You can use it to write a journal, track all the files for a project or job, manage your bookmarks, save your favorite Web articles, store financial statements and receipts, run a paperless office, plan a trip, collect your course notes, archive your e-mail correspondence, search mailing list archives, research a purchase, remember recipes to cook or books to read, store scientific papers, sort photos, gather legal case notes, or assemble a scrapbook. It’s the most flexible tool on your Mac.

This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • EagleFiler now shows a more detailed Kind for text files, e.g. Markdown document or Ruby Source instead of Text File.
  • Improved importing from various Web sites, including the New York Times and Discourse forums, where sometimes the content would be truncated or overlaid.
  • Worked around file errors caused by APFS’s strict handling of Unicode characters, e.g. not allowing emoji that were added in later versions of macOS. This could cause an import to fail when creating a new file based on a Web page or other user-generated content or when importing a file that had been saved on HFS+ or a newer version of APFS. EagleFiler will now escape any unsuitable characters so that the import can proceed without error.
  • When importing from a Web view as plain text via drag and drop or the system service, EagleFiler will now save the source URL.
  • When capturing from Apple Mail, the error messages about special mailboxes and IMAP path prefixes are more helpful.
  • Added accessibility labels for the New Record toolbar buttons so that they work better with VoiceOver.
  • EagleFiler is now localized in Russian.
  • The To Import folder can now be replaced by an alias if you want to relocate it to another location (e.g. to work around a ScanSnap path length limitation).
  • Improved recognition of bookmark files that are missing their filename extension.
  • The Apple Mail importer is better able to reassemble messages in cases where Mail has saved duplicate copies of an attachment file in the same folder.
  • The OCR With PDFpen script now removes the “NeedsOCR” tag after applying OCR.
  • Improved the following sections of the manual:
  • Worked around an issue that could cause RStudio files to have generic icons.
  • Worked around a problem where EagleFiler would try to open a database file before it had been fully downloaded from iCloud Drive.
  • Update to version 1.4.3 of the SkimNotes framework.
  • Fixed a bug importing Apple Mail attachments where the attachment name in the message and the file on disk had different Unicode normalizations.
  • Fixed a bug where capturing from Safari failed if JavaScript was disabled.
  • Fixed a bug where the Trash button in the Errors window could be enabled when no errors were selected.
  • Fixed a bug where entering invalid Unicode could lead to database errors.
  • Fixed a bug where adding a lone - to an indexed search query could prevent it from finding any matches.

June 2nd, 2020 (ToothFairy)
Download on the Mac App Store
Available on Setapp

Version 2.6.2 of ToothFairy is now available.

ToothFairy is a Mac menu bar utility that lets you connect AirPods to your Mac with a single click or keypress. It also works with other Bluetooth headphones and with input devices such as mice, keyboards, and game pad controllers. You can see at a glance which devices are connected, as well as their battery levels. ToothFairy can also make music and videos sound better by using a higher quality codec for audio output.

  • Added the How can I rename a Bluetooth device? section of the manual.
  • If macOS forgot that ToothFairy was set as a login item, it will now repair this at launch without your having to click the preferences checkbox.
  • Improved the Improve sound quality by disabling audio input from device and Why isn’t my device connecting? sections of the manual.
  • Adjusted the icons so that if you have a keyboard next to a trackpad, they line up.

SpamSieve 2.9.39

March 4th, 2020 (SpamSieve)

Version 2.9.39 of SpamSieve is now available.

Save time by adding powerful spam filtering to the e-mail client on your Mac. SpamSieve gives you back your inbox, using Bayesian spam filtering to provide amazing accuracy that’s constantly improving. SpamSieve learns and adapts to your mail, so it’s able to block nearly all the junk—without putting good messages in the spam mailbox. It’s quick and easy to control SpamSieve from within Apple Mail, Airmail, Entourage, MailMate, Mailsmith, Outlook, Postbox 5, PowerMail, and more.

SpamSieve running on your Mac can keep the spam off your iPhone/iPad, and you can even train SpamSieve from your iOS device.

SpamSieve protects your privacy. It does not need access to your mail account login and does not transmit your mail data anywhere. All the processing is done on your Mac.

This is a free update that includes the following changes:

  • Made various changes to improve SpamSieve’s filtering accuracy.
  • When you select spam messages in Apple Mail, the message list text is more readable through a variety of highlight colors.
  • Improved the following sections of the manual:
  • Added the Processing Messages Before SpamSieve and Setting Up Airmail 1–3 sections of the manual.
  • Worked around a change in the forthcoming macOS 10.15.4 that could prevent Mail from loading SpamSieve’s plug-in if you had relocated your home folder to another volume. If Mail reports an error loading the plug-in, choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu to update it.
  • Worked around an Apple Mail bug that could, in rare cases on macOS 10.15, cause spam messages to be marked as spam but not moved to the Spam mailbox. If this is happening for you, choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu to enable the workaround.
  • A small percentage of Apple Mail users are seeing a macOS 10.15 bug where a rule that is supposed to move messages to an IMAP or Exchange mailbox instead deletes them. If this is happening for you, make sure that your SpamSieve rule is set to move the messages to a local mailbox under On My Mac (as recommended in the Setting up Apple Mail section of the manual) rather than to a mailbox on the mail server.
  • A small percentage of Apple Mail users are seeing a macOS 10.15 bug where moving a message to an IMAP or Exchange mailbox (either via drag-and-drop or via AppleScript, as SpamSieve does) instead deletes it. If this is happening for you, you can use the Change Settings command to set SpamSieve to (a) move messages trained as spam to a local Spam mailbox (this is the default); and (b) not move messages trained as good back to the inbox (you can instead copy them by Option-dragging or using the menu command).
  • SpamSieve now includes an experimental feature to save backup copies of the messages that it has processed. This can help prevent data loss if you are one of the unlucky users affected by a bug in the macOS 10.15 version of Apple Mail that can delete messages when moving them from one mailbox to another. The bug is not actually related to SpamSieve and also manifests when it’s not installed. However, training messages with SpamSieve is a common reason that Mail would be asked to move messages, possibly triggering the bug. And since SpamSieve sees the messages, anyway, it’s in a good position to help mitigate the bug. For more information about backups and how to enable them, please see the Backing Up Messages section of the manual.
  • If you are running into a bug in macOS 10.15 where Mail hangs for 10+ seconds during launch, the If Apple Mail Is Running Slowly section of the manual now describes how you can work around this by disabling and re-enabling SpamSieve’s plug-in.
  • Worked around an Apple Mail bug that could cause the Preferences window to be blank on macOS 10.15, making it impossible to enable SpamSieve’s plug-in or to access other Mail settings.
  • When installing the Apple Mail plug-in, SpamSieve will now warn you if Mail’s files are stored on a different volume than your home folder, which would prevent Mail from loading the plug-in on macOS 10.14 or later.
  • If SpamSieve detects that macOS’s AppleScript system files are damaged, which can prevent training from working, it will now recommend that you reinstall macOS.
  • After installing the Apple Mail plug-in, we recommend clicking the Quit and Show Instructions button. If you opt not to do this, the other button is now titled Continue rather than Cancel, to better reflect that the plug-in has still been installed and still needs to be enabled.
  • There’s now an esoteric preference to mark Outlook messages as unread after filtering, to work around a mysterious issue where moving a message to another folder caused it to be marked as read.
  • SpamSieve now logs to Console to help you detect inefficient regexes that slow down rule matching.
  • Revised the Apple Mail and Postbox plug-ins for new macOS notarization requirements.
  • Fixed a bug where training a message as good in Apple Mail could switch to displaying the inbox instead of moving the message to the inbox.
  • Fixed a bug where SpamSieve could warn you that the Apple Mail plug-in was not enabled if Mail relaunched while SpamSieve was in the process of uninstalling.
  • Fixed a bug where relaunching Apple Mail while SpamSieve was reminding you to enable the plug-in could result in a duplicate alert being shown.

SpamSieve 2.9.39 works with macOS 10.7 through 10.15 and requires an e-mail client. Older versions are available for older operating systems. For information about previous releases of SpamSieve, please see the version history.

If you enjoy using SpamSieve, please take a moment to review it on Product Hunt or MacUpdate or to mention it on Twitter, Facebook, or your own site. We’d really appreciate it.

DropDMG 3.5.10

February 10th, 2020 (DropDMG)

Version 3.5.10 of DropDMG is now available.

DropDMG makes it easy to create a professional disk image for your app. Disk images pack entire folders or disks into a single compressed file, either for transport across the Internet or simply for backup or archival. They are Apple’s preferred format for distributing Mac software and the only archive format whose contents you can directly access in the Mac Finder—no extraction or third-party software required.

Deliver your Mac app on a .dmg file with a software license agreement, a custom volume icon, and a precise icon layout atop a Retina-optimized background picture. Customers can install simply by dragging and dropping the app onto the convenient Applications folder link. Code-sign your .dmg so that macOS knows it can be trusted after download.

This is a free update for owners of DropDMG 3.0 that includes the following enhancements:

  • If the chosen signing identity is no longer available, DropDMG will now show it in the Signing pop-up menu in red (instead of selecting Unsigned) so that you can see that creating the disk image with those settings will cause an error.
  • Fixed a bug where the Finder window height was one point off on macOS 10.14 and later.
  • Updated the Layouts section of the manual.
  • Updated the Chinese localization.

DropDMG 3.5.10 works with macOS 10.7 through 10.15. Older versions are available for older operating systems. For information about previous releases of DropDMG, please see the version history.

If you enjoy using DropDMG, please take a moment to review it on the Mac App Store, Product Hunt, or MacUpdate or to mention it on Twitter, Facebook, or your own site. We’d really appreciate it.

It’s the most flexible tool on your Mac.

This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • Improved capturing from MarsEdit. Posts are now imported as HTML instead of plain text, so they preview properly in EagleFiler’s viewer. (This can be overridden by changing the MarsEditCaptureFormat esoteric preference from html to txt.) You can now capture multiple selected posts at once. The filename is now based on the slug, if available, instead of the title. Tags are now preserved. HTML entities in the title, category, or tags are now decoded.
  • Worked around a MailTags bug where tags might not be imported from Apple Mail when using a newer version of MailTags, capturing multiple messages at once, and the messages were stored locally.
  • The new version of the Hook app has improved support for linking files with EagleFiler. EagleFiler customers can get a 20% discount on Hook with coupon code G11X8-G665N-EFR (good through 2020-02-15).
  • Added the note RTF and note HTML scripting properties, which let you get and set the rich text contents of a record’s note.
  • Added the Merge Records script, which lets you combine the text of multiple selected records into one.
  • Improved the reliability of the MailTags importer.

  • Improved the display of e-mail messages that specify an incorrect text encoding for an HTML part, such as those generated by MailRaider.

  • Fixed a bug where importing a file whose name begins with a period might not treat it as the proper file type.
  • Fixed a bug where contextual menu items would not be properly validated when Control-clicking on selected text in an HTML file or Web archive.
  • Fixed a bug where an error loading a .eml file (e.g. because the file is missing) would cause the previously displayed message to be shown rather than an error.
  • Fixed a bug where importing a folder when a folder already existed with the same name but different case would cause the newly uniqued folder name to have the wrong case.
  • Fixed a bug where a narrow date column could display as empty instead of showing truncated values.
  • Fixed a bug where saving a message as a .eml file would fail if the message’s subject contained a NUL character.

SpamSieve protects your privacy. It does not need access to your mail account login and does not transmit your mail data anywhere. All the processing is done on your Mac.

This is a free update that includes the following changes:

  • SpamSieve 2.9.38 (and also 2.9.37) are compatible with macOS 10.15, however a small number of customers are seeing issues with the Catalina version of Apple Mail. The latest information about Catalina is available here.
  • Worked around an AppleScript bug in Apple Mail on macOS 10.15 that could result in messages trained as good being moved to the inbox of an account that’s disabled, making it look like the messages disappeared. This fix is available for all new installations and for older ones if you choose Install Apple Mail Plug-In from the SpamSieve menu. (If you weren’t seeing this problem or have no disabled accounts, it’s not necessary to update the plug-in.)

  • Added an experimental esoteric preference (click to enable/disable) to flag incoming spam messages as gray. A few customers are running into a Mail bug in macOS 10.15 that prevents rules from moving messages (even when using an Apple Mail Script Rule).

  • If the Rules file is damaged, SpamSieve will now report some more information about the problem.
