AutoUpdater has been massively expanded. It can run schedules on specific weekdays, or when a volume is mounted, or when NeoFinder is launched
NeoFinder 7.5 is certified to run in macOS 10.15. We still very highly recommend to wait with the update to macOS 10.15 at least until 10.15.5 is released next year

• Navigate to the next or previous item in the Inspector with a menu or keyboard command for much faster metadata editing
• Inspector: Select which sections should be displayed
• Sort the Icon View by Duration
• The Display Filter remembers your settings for the first menu. Keep that in mind if you wonder why NeoFinder may not show all expected items...
• Find Editor can search for file kind "Email"
• Find Editor can search for "codec is NOT"
• "Export Photos as..." is a separate menu command in the Item menu, with Shift-Command-E as a hotkey
• Photo Export can apply XMP Metadata Presets to the exported file
• Copy->Path will copy the full macOS style path of a file if it is online
• Catalog the text content of ".md" (markdown) files

• NeoFinder can catalog the boot volume in macOS 10.15 properly
• Photo Export handles rotated photos better
• Cataloging: Phase One EIP files is much faster, and supports all file variations

• Added more items to the Info.plist to describe the use of the new Folder Cages introduced by Apple in 10.15
• Copy and Paste of a GPS Geotag will use the view direction, too
