NeoFinder certified for Mountain Lion!

NeoFinder 6.0.1 runs in Mountain Lion 10.8!

Today, we are proud to report that our certification has shown that NeoFinder 6.0.1 works fine in Apples new operating system, Mac OS X 10.8, nicknamed “Mountain Lion”. Roar!

There is one tiny visual glitch regarding the “Plus” button in the lower left corner of the main window, but that isn’t really a show stopper now, is it?

Everything else works as fine as it did in Mac OS X 10.5, 10.6, and 10.7.

So NeoFinder runs in four major OS releases from Apple!

After 16 years, we really had to drop the "CD" in the name of CDFinder, even though we really grew fond of it.

But since everything is new in that cool version 6.0, we went for the new name
NeoFinder!

NeoFinder is fully rewritten in Cocoa, has a beautiful new interface, and a LOT to offer.

Some of the new and amazing features include:

  • New Icon
  • Everything in one window, but you can of course view catalogs, folders, or albums in separate windows for much better workflow as well
  • New Column mode, to complete Icon and List mode
  • Fully integrated Inspector
  • Fully integrated map with GeoFinder
  • New Wikipedia Inspector for items with GPS geotags
  • Super-fast multi-core Find engine
  • Smart Folders
  • New powerful Find Editor has more options
  • Albums, to keep interesting items together
  • Better Browser-like navigation
  • Massively improved Audio-CD cataloging: Reads ISRC, MCN, and CD-TEXT from the disk, uses MusicBrainz for track titles
  • New Importers for Canto Cumulus and MediaDex CRE files, for WhereIsIt for Windows XML files, DiskCatalogMaker Export files, and Tolis BRU Tape Backup report files
  • Importer for iView MediaPro and Expression Media XML files now integrated
  • NeoFinder now catalogs, displays, and searches OpenMeta keywords!
  • AutoUpdater: Update your catalogs with a time schedule (requires business License)

CDFinder runs fine in Snow Leopard

cdfinder logo
CDFinder 5.6.1 of course runs fine in Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)!

Now that Apple has release the new version of its operating system, we can tell you that CDFinder 5.6.1 runs fine in Snow Leopard!

There are tow small issues, though:
1. Since the QuickLook API has been changed in Snow Leopard, CDFinder 5.6.1 cannot display the QuickLook window for files currently online. We are working on a fix for that.
2. Since Apple has removed the contextual menu modules from Snow Leopard, the "CDFinder CMM" won't work in the new Finder. The CDFinder team was very disappointed by this loss of features in Snow Leopard, and we are working to find a solution. If you also think this is a problem, please make sure to tell Apple about this!

The very good news is that Apple has improved stability of the CoreImage framework that CDFinder uses to get photo metadata and thumbnails in Snow Leopard, so this will improve overall stability of CDFinder as well.
