Photo Mechanic 4.6.8 Released
« on: September 13, 2011, 07:07:57 PM »
Hello Everyone,

We are pleased to announce the release version of Photo Mechanic 4.6.7.  This new version mostly addresses issues when running Photo Mechanic on Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and a few minor issues that were discovered after the release of Photo Mechanic 4.6.7.

Download the Mac OS X and Windows versions here.

Version 4.6.8
* (Mac) Updated the slideshow and live slideshow to work with Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion).  Please read the note above if you are using Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger) or 10.5.x (Leopard) as you will need a special "legacy" build that uses the old slideshow.  HINT: To move the slideshow to a different monitor, temporarily use the 'F' key to toggle between full screen and window mode, drag the slideshow window to a different monitor, and then resume to full screen with 'F' key.
* Added support for RAW ORF files from the Olympus E-P3, E-PL2, DMC-GF2, and DMC-GH2.
* Fixed {frame} and {frame4} variables for JPEG and NEF files saved from Capture NX2.
* When uploading, the cached upload images (not your originals) are deleted when their image processing is complete.  Upload images are also deleted if the upload is terminated.
* (Win) Autoplay will now launch Photo Mechanic and if configured to ingest, PM will display the ingest dialog.
* Fixed an issue with Ingest where the {seqn} value would be incremented when using a local IPTC Stationery Pad that didn't contain the {seqn} variable (but the global IPTC Stationery Pad did).
* The {seqn} value is only incremented by one when saving from Preview window.
* Structured Keywords are now written to IPTC metadata without spaces around the '|' separator character.  This makes them consistent with the way the XMP data is represented.
* Fixed an issue that would cause improperly formatted but otherwise valid GPS coordinates to be discarded.
* Fixed an issue with expanding extremely large {variable} lookups.
* (Mac) Fixed an issue in the Preview window that would cause the user's choice of layout to be disregarded.
* (Max) Fixed Navigator Sidebar issues when running on Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion).
* (Mac) Fixed an issue with launching classic (Rosetta) Photoshop droplets.
* PEF files now treated properly as TIFF-based RAW.
* Enabled cropping feature for RAW Sony formats ARW, SR2, and SRF.
* Fixed handling of smart quotes (e.g. pasted in by Word) in the Text Exporter.
