Photo Mechanic 4.6.6 public beta 2
« on: September 24, 2010, 05:15:13 PM »
Hello Everyone,

We are pleased to announce the second public beta version of Photo Mechanic 4.6.6.  This new version addresses a few issues that were discovered after the release of Photo Mechanic 4.6.5.

Download the Mac OS X version here.
Download the Windows version here.

Version Information

Version 4.6.6
* Optimized scanning of large contact sheets, especially if they contained a number of TIFF files.
* Optimized disk input on all image files, but especially on TIFF files.
* Compressed (LZW or ZIP) planar TIFF files are now supported.  Uncompressed planar TIFF files now load much faster.
* Added the new PhotoDeck uploader template, provided by photodeck.com.
* Fixed an issue in the PMSlideShow exporter template where accented characters would not work correctly.
* Fixed a bug where applying an IPTC Stationery Pad with variables and code replacement would not work with Supplemental Category fields.
* Fixed a problem with exporting and importing Structured Keywords data.
* Switching between date/time formats in the IPTC dialogs now remembers user-modified date/time and restores it.
* Reverted to 4.5.5 method of reading the "is tagged" preference (EOF takes precedence over IPTC/XMP) because tagging edits in earlier versions (e.g. 4.5.4) would not be visible in 4.6.5.
* Save As no longer allows an empty renaming string.
* (Mac) Fixed a problem with copying/moving files to a volume that no longer exists.
* (Mac) Fixed an issue where working with server volumes that did not support the Finder Locked attribute would cause virtually all functions of Photo Mechanic to fail.
* (Mac) Fixed an issue where Searching for a Mac File Type would not work.
* (Mac) Fixed issues Searching for exact text matches.
* (Mac) Fixed an issue with Quick Search that allowed cache images to show as results.
* (Win) Fixed an issue where entering accented characters in Color Class labels in the General tab of the Preferences dialog would not work correctly.
