Hayo,

Wow, more than half a year ago I bumped this one, time flies!

Kirk, any news on this one?  The ability to synchronise the IPTC info with multiple files (e.g., RAW, PSD, TIFF, JPG, etc.) as well as being able to view them "as one" (like now with the RAW/JPG pair) is still something I would really like to see.

In fact it is the only thing I really miss right now in PM.

So, Kirk, any word on this one?

We've thought about it quite a bit.  Unfortunately it is not at all straightforward to implement.  It will definitely not be in version 4.6.

-Kirk

Pity, but thanks for the straight answer. I'm curious as to what all gets to make into 4.6 though , can't be anything other than good of course :D

By the way, is there a way I could contribute to this in any way to make this request any easier for you guys?  I was/am a pretty good programmer…

Thanks!

The beta for 4.6 should be out in the next few weeks.

Thanks for the offer of help.
