Photo Mechanic public beta
« on: April 30, 2008, 08:23:28 PM »
Hello everyone,

Photo Mechanic version Beta 1 is now available for Mac OS X and Windows.

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

Here are the release notes:

* (Win) Fixed issue in IPTC Info dialog where there were two date controls instead of a single date and single time control.
* (Win) Holding down the Shift key when opening the Page Setup dialog causes the current Default Printer to be acquired.
* Ingest now ignores folders that begin with a period ('.').
* The IPTC Info dialog now correctly saves the IPTC Date and Time when set to Capture Time or Modification Time.
* Applying an IPTC Stationery Pad with Capture Time or Modification Time now works properly.  Doing so now also sets the IPTC Time as well as the IPTC Date.
* Spaces are now inserted between the command and the next keyword in the Keywords field.
* The JPEG quality setting now works properly on the entire set of Uploader templates.
* (Win) Fixed problem with cursor positioning when using Code Replacement on a text field with multiple lines.
* (Mac) On Leopard, applying the Color Class via keyboard shortcut would apply the setting multiple times.  This has been fixed.
* (Mac) The Color Class snapshot button in the General tab of the Preferences dialog now works correctly.
* (Mac) Fixed a problem in Save As where the saved filename would have a .JPG.TIF extension when TIFF was the chosen output and the source was a RAW photo of a RAW+JPEG pair.
* (Win) Structured keywords help file is now correct.
* Sorting by {lens} now works properly for focal lengths greater than or equal to 100.
* Added code to recover from missing settings data from Export and Uploader templates.

The beta expire date is May 15th.  We expect to have the final version out by that date.
