NeoFinder 6.4 is here!



NeoFinder 6.4 is here! Now in 64-Bit!

We are incredibly happy and proud to present the next big version of NeoFinder to you!

It is much faster, thanks to supporting 64-bit memory addressing, but also due to some amazing optimizations under the hood!

It also supports the new Tags in Mavericks, and the new Maps.app from Apple.

Here is a short list of what is new in NeoFinder 6.4:

New Features:

  • NeoFinder is now a 64bit application. This allows for a lot of more memory to be used to deal with large catalog databases!
  • NeoFinder 6.4 has been certified to run in Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks
  • Cataloging now reads the new Finder Tags of Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks (this even works all the way back to Mac OS X 10.6!)
  • NeoFinder can now Find Duplicates in your database!
  • The cool new Movie Contact Sheet generates a customisable preview of one or multiple selected movie files as graphic
  • The Movie Contact Sheet also works for any arbitrary movie file you have selected in the Finder, using the NeoFinder Services menu!
  • NeoFinder now catalogs Adobe XMP metadata, like keywords and descriptions, for movie files!
  • The new NeoFinder Global QuickFind gives NeoFinder a place right in your menu bar, near the Spotlight search field!
  • NeoFinder can now import Cache-A catalog XML files!
  • A much improved memory engine increases overall application speed
  • Apples new Map application in Mavericks is connected to the Map in NeoFinder now
  • Massively improved MusicBrainz connection for cataloging Audio-CDs with better results for many disks
  • That new MusicBrainz code can also read Cover Art of Audio-CDs, if it is available at coverartarchive.org
  • ZIP archive files larger than 4 GB can now be cataloged as well
  • The column for the Total Items of catalogs now also displayed the sum of all items of all catalogs inside a catalog folder

Improvements:
  • Improved the regex search feature for names (only Mac OS X 10.7 and newer)

And a lot more!

NeoFinder 6.2.1 certified for Mavericks



NeoFinder 6.2.1 now certified for Mavericks!

NeoFinder 6.2.1 has been tested and works fine in the new Mac OS X 10.9, aka Mavericks.

Of course, as always, we suggest to wait until at least 10.9.2 before updating
productive systems to the new Mac OS X version.

NeoFinder 6.2.1 for Gatekeeper released



NeoFinder 6.2.1 for Gatekeeper released!

That new security feature of Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8 is now supported by NeoFinder! This special issue of the proven code in NeoFinder 6.2.1 contains a digital signature that makes it more trustworthy for Apple.

NeoFinder 6.2.1 for GateKeeper is only intended for Mac OS X 10.7 or newer!

If you are using Mac OS X 10.5 or 10.6, you can keep your existing NeoFinder 6.2.1.

NeoFinder features in TUAW



"In a nutshell, NeoFinder is like a supercharged Finder"

"The Unofficial Apple Weblog" writes this about NeoFinder in their blog:

http://www.tuaw.com/2013/02/01/neofinder-powerfully-catalogs-and-indexes-your-photos-music-and/

"
Even with powerful built-in Mac OS X features like Spotlight and QuickLook, it can be so frustrating when you can't find exactly what you're looking for because you can't remember exactly where you put it.
If you work with large quantities of photos, audio files, video or documents, but have found yourself struggling to find that file -- it could be in any number of offline hard drives, discs or backups -- then NeoFinder if probably what you need."


We are thrilled to receive such a great review! Thank you!

New Features:

  • You can now open Found folders in a separate window, using the new context menu command. That is super useful to view what is in a found folder
