Photo Mechanic: Version 5 Build 13645
« on: January 31, 2013, 04:31:27 PM »
Hello everyone,

This release build fixes a number of issues present in build 13507:

√ New redesigned icons in toolbars and various UI elements.
√ LiveIngest now monitors folder hierarchies three levels deep instead of two levels deep.
√ Event field is now stored properly as Lang Alt in XMP.
√ Several XMP-only fields were not able to be cleared in previous builds.  This has been corrected.
√ Updated PhotoDeck uploader template to version 1.4.
√ Fixed a problem in the Find and Replace panel where any choice but "Always keep selection" would always deselect all images:
√ Made Rights Usage Terms into a multi-line field.
√ Made Additional Model Info into a multi-line field.
√ Added Job... button to IPTC Info, IPTC Stationery Pad, Rename, and Copy/Move Photos dialogs.
√ Whitelisted Canon 6D, Olympus E-PL5, E-PM2, XZ-2 for parsing MakerNotes.
√ When updating JPEG files with IPTC/XMP, the Exif/TIFF tags for Image Description, Artist, and Copyright will updated if the corresponding IPTC/XMP values (Caption, Byline, and Copyright) can fit into the already allocated space.  If not enough space is available, the Exif/TIFF tags will be removed because the values already exist in IPTC/XMP.
√ The Exif/TIFF tags for Image Description, Artist, and Copyright will be honored for the corresponding IPTC/XMP Caption, Byline, and Copyright fields if an image has no embedded or sidecar IPTC/XMP.
√ Live Slideshow now implements previously missing Snapshot Load & Save functionality.
√ ISO fix for Nikon: Fixed display of 'Lo' ISO values.
√ ACR adjustments are no longer removed from XMP when updating TIFF files.
√ Added a new variable {isox} for Nikon's "ISO Expansion".  Sample values are "Lo 0.3" or "Hi 1.7" etc.  If the ISO is not "expanded" then the variable's value is empty.

√ Retina display optimized icons, toolbars, and cursors.
√ Retina display support for high resolution Thumbnails and Previews.  Please see the Contact Sheet and Preview settings and choose your rendering quality.
√ Fixed a memory leak that occurred when generating stills from videos (for Thumbnails or for Save As).
√ Fixed a problem where the Tag checkbox would move around when the IPTC Info window was resized:
√ The fifth star of the 5-Star Rating Filter widget is now drawn correctly.
√ Clicking in dead space now deselects all thumbnails and updates the selection count correctly.
√ Video Previews now show time code ( next to the video controller.

√ Toolbars are shorter in height and have new icons.
√ Info Tooltips no longer show an error message when the tool tip text is very long.
√ Fixed an issue that would occur when switching from either of the 2-up views to the 1-up view in the Preview window.
√ Fixed an issue where the Save, Upload, and Advance button would not resize properly in the IPTC Info dialog when the Associated Press features are enabled.
√ The Tasks pane in the Preview window has been removed and it has been made into a collapsable control like the Info Text, Crop, Histogram, etc.  It can be expanded by clicking on the "+" button and shortened by clicking on the "-" button or collapsed down to a title only by clicking on the triangle button.  It appears between the Info Text and the Crop tool.
