[prMac.com] Luxembourg City, Luxembourg - publicspace.net today is pleased to announce version 8.51 of its file, music and photo renaming utility, A Better Finder Rename. The new release overhauls the tool's support for regular expressions.
A Better Finder Rename has supported regular expression substitution for some years now, but with the increasing popularity of programming languages such as PERL, PHP and Ruby that make extensive use of regular expressions, the expectations of experienced users have changed. The new release provides a new action that will feel more familiar to these more sophisticated users. Regular expressions remain an advanced feature that may not be appropriate for more casual computer users and those with no programming experience.
A Better Finder Rename has long been the most comprehensive file renaming solution for the Macintosh and has transformed the tedious and time-consuming task of renaming multiple files into a simple matter of seconds for thousands of creative professionals across the world. It is based on over 10 years of listening to our users and addressing their requirements to the best of our abilities.
A Better Finder Rename is a sophisticated tool that caters for the full range of file renaming tasks encountered by the modern creative professional. Its streamlined interface includes a instant preview feature that eliminates guess work and reduces error. The tool features capture time and date extraction (EXIF JPEG and most RAW formats) for digital photographers, ID3 tag extraction for music lovers, regular expression support, plain-text file import for renaming from databases and many other advanced features.
The new renaming engine introduced in version 8 is capable of handling very large renaming jobs with ease and it meets file renaming challenges, such as file name conflicts, swaps and dependency cycles that other such tools leave unaddressed, head on. The renaming engine leverages all the latest Mac OS X technologies by using a 64-bit multi-threaded garbage collected architecture based around Leopard's Core Data database system.
"A Better Finder Rename" is ideally suited for creative professionals, digital photographers, webmasters, users who need to transfer files from Windows or UNIX as well as for all other Macintosh users who deal with large numbers of files.
