EagleFiler 1.6.6

September 29th, 2015 (EagleFiler)

Version 1.6.6 of EagleFiler is now available. This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • EagleFiler is now fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
  • The Fonts panel now has a menu for selecting the system font. This lets you use San Francisco on Mac OS X 10.11, even though it is not selectable in the regular system Fonts panel. If you select a system font using the new menu, EagleFiler will adapt to always use the system font for the version of the operating system that you’re currently running. In contrast, if you select Lucida Grande or Helvetica Neue, the font will stay fixed.
  • The About, Software Update, and help windows now use the San Francisco font on Mac OS X 10.11.
  • Modernized code for the Xcode 7 compiler and the Mac OS X 10.11 SDK.
  • Added support for App Transport Security on Mac OS X 10.11.
  • Added full support for indexing .ics and .vcf files attached to e-mail messages.
  • Mac OS X 10.11 no longer includes the formail tool, so EagleFiler now includes its own copy. The Remove Duplicate Messages script has been updated accordingly.
  • The capture key now works with Apple Mail on Mac OS X 10.11.
  • You can now use the Find panel in the notes text view.
  • Optimized indexing of .bmp files attached to e-mail messages.
  • Added more message attachment file types that can be indexed.
  • The Polish velarized L is now treated like other accented characters for the purposes of indexing and searching.
  • EagleFiler no longer tries to extract text from unknown message attachment types. This should make indexing faster and speed up searching using Match Partial Words by not filling the index with junk terms.
  • Refined the search index’s definition of terms to make searches more accurate and to reduce index bloat.
  • Improved the following sections of the manual:
  • When extracting a file’s contents for indexing, EagleFiler will now abort if it hasn’t finished after a few minutes, to work around a bug in Mac OS X 10.10’s PDF reader.
  • Added some esoteric preferences to work around hangs and crashes caused by the OS’s built-in support for .docx files.
  • Worked around an OS bug that could cause a single-page PDF to be initially scrolled down, when viewing in Continuous Scroll mode.
  • Worked around a bug in Mac OS X 10.11 that could cause a crash during Software Update….
  • Worked around a Tidy bug that could cause a crash when indexing HTML e-mails.
  • Worked around a bug in Mac OS X 10.11 that could prevent EagleFiler from capturing from Apple Mail.
  • Removed the application icon from the Open With menu title because it caused the text to appear too dark.
  • Fixed a bug where menu items with attributed titles had the wrong font size.
  • Fixed a bug where the sample text in the Preferences window’s font chooser text fields would sometimes get cut off.
  • Fixed a bug where the contents of <NOFRAMES> tags could be displayed in HTML views.
  • Fixed a bug where Software Update… would continue offering updates in the same session you had held down the Option key.
  • Fixed a bug where including square brackets in a search query could prevent EagleFiler from finding the relevant records if Match Partial Words was enabled.
  • Fixed a regression where indexing certain types of files didn’t work on Mac OS X 10.6.
  • Fixed a bug where EagleFiler did not reindex a record’s source URL if you changed it via AppleScript.
  • Fixed a bug where the contents of <NOFRAMES> tags could be displayed.
  • Fixed a regression that caused some mailbox files to be imported as text files.
  • Fixed a bug where EagleFiler wouldn’t always rebuild a missing mailbox index file.
