Photo Mechanic: Version 5 Build 18040
« on: December 22, 2016, 04:19:53 pm »
Hello Everyone,

We have a new updated build that solves a number of issues present in the 17719 build.  Please see below for release notes.

Mac:
http://www.camerabits.com/download/PhotoMechanic5R18040.dmg

Windows:
http://www.camerabits.com/download/PM5SetupR18040.exe

Version 5.0 Build 18040

Both:
• Ingest now ignores the new ImgSaver.bin file created by some Canon cameras.
• Added support for Canon 5D Mk IV, M5, 1300D, and PowerShot G7 X Mk II, Olympus E-M1 Mk II and E-PL8 models for parsing Maker Notes.
• Added more columns and editing capabilities for Artwork or Object metadata in the IPTC dialogs.
• Warnings that appear when opening a read-only media such as a DVD-ROM can now be disabled by setting DISABLE_READ_ONLY_WARNINGS to ON in your PMDebug.txt file.  Enabling a debug flag is documented here: http://wiki.camerabits.com/en/index.php?title=PMDebug
• Warnings that appear when opening a camera card when your preference is set to not allow modifications on a camera card can be disabled by setting DISABLE_CAMERA_CARD_WARNINGS to ON in your PMDebug.txt file.  Enabling a debug flag is documented here: http://wiki.camerabits.com/en/index.php?title=PMDebug
• Tab-Separated Value text files (*.TSV) may be chosen in the file picker brought up by clicking the Load button in the Structured Keywords dialog/panel.
• Added support for DXO Optics Pro settings files (they are associated with their base file and are copied/moved/renamed along with the main image file.)  Users who don’t use DXO Optics Pro can disable the extension by setting IGNORE_EXTENSION_DOP ON in the PMDebug.txt file.  Documented here: http://wiki.camerabits.com/en/index.php?title=PMDebug
• Fixed a hang that could occur when loading snapshots in the Live Ingest dialog.
• Fixed a hang that occurs when deleting metadata that is malformed.

Mac:
• Made it possible to open the snapshot menu via keypress rather than mouse click only.
