EagleFiler 1.5.2

January 25th, 2011 (EagleFiler)

EagleFiler 1.5.2 is now available. This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • Made some optimizations so that typing in the viewer and in text fields is more responsive.
  • Made some changes to hopefully work around a bug in Mac OS X 10.6 that, for some users, had been causing intermittent crashes when importing lots of files.
  • When importing due to Scan for New Files or the To Import folder, EagleFiler now skips symlinks. This prevents accidentally referencing files outside the library folder.
  • Added the Reload OpenMeta Tags AppleScript.
  • Worked around a problem with the eDrawings Viewer Spotlight importer plug-in that could cause indexing to hang.
  • Added accessibility titles to the Preferences window.
  • Improved the German localization.
  • EagleFiler is now code-signed.
  • Fixed a bug where changes in the tags bar could be lost if you were viewing a Web archive and moused over a link.
  • Fixed a bug where file sizes in the records list were not displayed using base-10 megabytes when running on Mac OS X 10.6.
  • Fixed a bug where setting the basename property via AppleScript wasn’t undoable.
  • Fixed a regression where EagleFiler could not import a file whose name contained a colon unless it was running on Mac OS X 10.6.
  • Fixed a bug where the scan for new files script command returned before it was actually possible to close the window.
  • Fixed a bug where EagleFiler would let the JavaScript in a Web archive close the window.
  • Fixed a bug where clicking on a tag toolbar button or in the Tag Cloud discarded changes made in the Info window’s tags field.
  • Fixed a bug where the tagging toolbar buttons didn’t work if certain fields in the Info window were in edit mode.
  • Fixed a regression where fields in the Info window could be incorrectly enabled when there was a multiple selection.
  • EagleFiler will now note in the log if a file was modified in the future, as this can prevent indexing from completing.
  • Common types of errors when setting OpenMeta tags are now logged more concisely.
  • No longer logs errors when Quick Look fails to generate a preview.
  • If a damaged index file prevents a search from completing, EagleFiler now shows the search results that are available and logs an error, rather than confusingly making it look as though you weren’t searching at all.
  • The build number is now available as a tooltip on the version number in the about box.
  • Fixed a bug where the Spotlight indexer didn’t work for .eml files with CRLF linebreaks.
  • Worked around a Finder problem that could prevent capturing from MarsEdit.
  • Fixed a bug where the Open With contextual menu item didn’t work when EagleFiler was in the background.
  • Fixed a regression where capturing didn’t work with Safari 3.
