Photo Mechanic public beta 2
« on: May 14, 2008, 09:26:04 PM »
Hello everyone,

Photo Mechanic version Beta 2 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:

* Added support for reading Nikon's frame number from maker notes of newer cameras.
* Sound files (.WAV) that are named "SND_xxxx.WAV" are now attached to photos that have the same frame number as part of their filename (e.g. "IMG_xxxx.JPG").
* 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.
* 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.
* (Win) Fixed problem with cursor positioning when using Code Replacement on a text field with multiple lines.
* (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.
* (Win) Structured keywords help file is now correct.
* (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.

The beta expire date is May 31st.  We expect to have the final version out by that date.
