EagleFiler 1.5.8

The following was posted on the EagleFiler blog:

EagleFiler 1.5.8 is now available. This is a free update that includes the following enhancements:

  • EagleFiler can now import rich text copied or dragged from Firefox and Google Chrome.
  • Made various optimizations to improve the responsiveness of the user interface, particularly when resizing the main browser window.
  • Searches by Filename
    , Title, From, and To/Cc, as well as matching in smart folders, are now diacritic-insensitive. For example, you can now search for resume and find résumé. (Anywhere and Notes searches have always been diacritic-insensitive.) - Added the Copy Filename, Copy File Path, and Copy File URL AppleScripts.
  • Added support for Growl notifications via GNTP (requires Mac OS X 10.7 or later).
  • When printing an image, EagleFiler will now center it and scale it down, as necessary, to fit the paper.
  • The Import From Apple Mail script now works in Full Screen mode on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
  • EagleFiler now skips importing temporary files for Microsoft Excel and invisible files from IntegrityChecker.
  • Tried to work around a bug in Mac OS X 10.6 that could cause EagleFiler to open multiple copies of the same library.
  • The update checksum script command is now synchronous, and it gains an optional for parameter that takes a list of records. This is much faster for bulk operations.
  • When rebuilding a library, EagleFiler now restores all the tags, not just the ones that were in use.
  • EagleFiler is better at checking fallback locations when reading OpenMeta tags.
  • EagleFiler is better at handling errors when setting OpenMeta tags.
  • Fixed a bug where EagleFiler could crash after a token field malfunction.
  • Fixed a bug importing the selected Web text from newer versions of Safari Reader.
  • Fixed a bug displaying e-mail messages when the Source URL
    column was shown. - Fixed a bug where the color of newly created tags could be set to white instead of black.
  • Fixed a bug where the wrong tag could be applied if you clicked a checkbox in the Tags
    inspector while renaming a tag. - Fixed a bug that could lead to a tag temporarily not showing in the source list after changing its position in the hierarchy.
  • EagleFiler’s reporting of unexpected errors is now more detailed and more robust.
  • The Importing Mail From Outlook section of the manual now explains how to use a smart folder to capture mail from multiple Outlook folders at once.
  • The manual now specifically recommends telling iWork applications to include previews with their documents.
  • The direct build of EagleFiler is now code-signed, too.
  • Cache folders for EagleFiler’s helper tools now have a reverse domain name prefix.
  • The preferences for the Apple Mail capture script are now stored in the main EagleFiler preferences file.
  • Launched applications no longer inherit EagleFiler’s Python environment variables, which could cause problems if they also used Python.
