EagleFiler 1.9.13b1 Public Beta

Here’s a new beta version of EagleFiler. The changes are:

  • Since version 1.9.2, EagleFiler has used Nitter to import Web pages from Twitter, as it did a good job of including media and related tweets. Twitter has since blocked access for users who are not logged in. For a while, Nitter was able to work around that, but now it is dead. Thus, this version of EagleFiler removes support for Nitter. There remain several ways to import from Twitter to EagleFiler:
    • This version adds a new feature so that, if you use the capture key in Safari, EagleFiler will create a text file with the contents of the tweets. The source URL is preserved.
    • You can use the EagleFiler system services to import the selected text.
    • You can use the Save PDF to EagleFiler command to import the whole page.
  • When using tag auto-completion, EagleFiler will now pre-select a matching tag with differing case if there’s no exact match.
  • The ef_unscanned tag now works to supress importing a subfolder when rebuilding a library.
  • If you press the capture key in the Unread RSS reader, EagleFiler will now explain how to import from it.
  • Worked around a macOS bug that could prevent the content of .eml files from being searchable. If you imported .eml files with a recent version of macOS, you can make them searchable again by rebuilding your EagleFiler library’s index. To do this, hold down the Command and Option keys when opening a library and select the option to rebuild the Records index.
  • Worked around a macOS bug that could cause a hang when importing from Unread using the system service.
  • Improved capturing from NetNewsWire when multiple articles are selected.
  • Improved handling of empty Web archive data from drags and system services.
  • Updated the following sections of the manual:
  • Each help page now has a link to a Google translation so you can view it in a different language.
  • Fixed a bug where EagleFiler could hang if you created a new file during a scan for new files.
  • Fixed setting the From name when importing a downloaded URL.
  • Fixed a file permissions issue when accessing a shared library.
  • Fixed a timeout error when capturing from a very large mailbox in Apple Mail.
  • Made various fixes and updates to prevent Cocoa from logging warnings.
  • Fixed a bug where a bad source URL could prevent a record from being displayed.
  • Updated to version 1.6 of the SkimNotes framework.
  • Fixed bug where an error could occur when generating a mailbox file to export the selected messages.
  • Removed defunct bundle resources.
