[prMac.com] Bonn, Germany - Norbert M. Doerner is proud to announce the release of NeoFinder 6.9 for Mac OS X, (formerly known as CDFinder). Keep track of digital files, photos, songs, movies, fonts on hard drives, USB sticks, servers, Blu-ray disks, DVD-ROMs, CDROMs, and any other digital media. NeoFinder generates thumbnails and metadata of files, for powerful search possibilities, smart folders, albums, and more. The new NeoFinder 6.9 offers a unique Importer for the abandoned Extensis Portfolio software, massive speed improvements, and important security fixes.
Features and Improvements of NeoFinder 6.9:
* Brand new Importer for Extensis Portfolio Export files allows you to rescue your valuable keywords from the discontinued Portfolio products
* Massively improved Find performance, especially on Mac OS X 10.10 and 10.11. In these two Mac OS X versions, Apple has introduced extremely slow string comparison code, which NeoFinder now replaces with its own, much better, hand optimized, code
* This version fixes the Sparkle-Updater security problem by using the safe SSL protocol
* Access to the maps of OpenStreetMap now uses the safe, encrypted SSL protocol
* Access to the MusicBrainz database for Audio-CDs now uses the safe, encrypted SSL protocol
* Improved cataloging of certain NEF RAW files that could fail to produce thumbnails and metadata
* Improved handling of new Tags when entering and editing these in the Inspector
* NeoFinder now prevents duplicate Tags from being added to files or folders
* Improved handling of protected catalog files. NeoFinder will now suppress any editing options for items in such catalogs
* Improved DiskLibrary Importer that handle large amounts of disks better
* Improved performance of the Inspector when browsing cataloged server volumes
* Cataloging of Adobe XMP data now also reads the "AuthorsPosition"
* Fixes a problem with "Find kind is NOT..."
* Fixes a possibly severe memory problem when updating a very large catalog
* Fixes a problem in Find Duplicates, where items with different modification dates could be considered identical
* Fixes a problem in Apples Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, where Apple tells NeoFinder a totally wrong number of files on SMB server volumes
* Improves compatibility with keywords added to XMP by Adobe Lightroom
* Fixes a problem with certain malformed disk image files during cataloging
* Fixes a possible problem in the movie contact sheet if certain system fonts are not available
* Many smaller enhancements and fixes
Metadata - NeoFinder catalogs metadata of songs, movies, fonts, and photos, including the MP3-Tags of several audio file formats, EXIF, GPS, and IPTC data of photos, and also Adobe XMP data. All these are arranged clearly in the user interface, and can be extensively searched. For numerous photo and video formats, fonts, and text files, NeoFinder generates thumbnails during cataloging, displaying them in all list and icon views.
Integration - Offering a tight connection to major productivity tools, such as Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office, Roxio Toast, FileMaker Pro, Apples Spotlight and Finder, and the extensive support of drag&drop into other applications, NeoFinder can support many workflow scenarios.
Geotagging - Only NeoFinder offers the integrated GeoFinder, which searches for photos taken near a spot, or the KMZ export for coordinates and photo thumbnails as a way to give geolocated photos to friends. NeoFinder can even geotag photos itself, no other software needed. And only NeoFinder displays amazing facts about any geolocation in the unique Wikipedia Inspector.
Networking - Store your catalog database on a server for access from all Macs in the network, and with the sidekick product abeMeda (was CDWinder for Windows) even from Microsoft Windows.
Mobile - Keep your NeoFinder database with you on your iPhone or iPad with the separate NeoFinder for iOS app.
