NeoFinder 6.8 released

NeoFinder 6.8 for Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan available today!

Just in time for the release of Apples new operating system El Capitan (Mac OS X 10.11), we can offer you a new version of NeoFinder that will work fine in that new system, and contains a lot of cool new features, too!

Features and Improvements of NeoFinder 6.8:

  • NeoFinder 6.8 is certified to run in Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan!
  • Add or change keywords (Finder Tags) for all files and folders! NeoFinder will not only store these keywords/tags in its catalog, but also attaches them to your original files and folders, just like Apples Finder does
  • Find performance is now faster in Yosemite and El Capitan (that is a serious bug from Apple, and we worked around it)
  • New Find Editor parameter: “Has no Tag”
  • Cataloging XMP data will now give precedence to XMP over possible IPTC tags in a file
  • NeoFinder now recognizes ExFAT volume types
  • Fixes several memory problems during cataloging
  • Fixes a problem in the “Any Text doesn’t contain” Find Editor parameter
  • Fixes a problem with the regex Find parameter
  • Fixes a possible problem when cataloging certain malformed MOV video files. NeoFinder will no longer seem to “hang” in that case
  • Fixes a problem in the “Find All Files in this Folder” context menu command
  • Fixes a problem when cataloging the textual content of certain PDF files
  • Fixes a problem when finding in a very large, very busy database folder in a network setup

NeoFinder requires 64 bit Mac OS X 10.6.8 or newer! If you use an older Mac OS X, we still have older NeoFinder and CDFinder versions for you.

NeoFinder: The Holy Grail of media asset management

“[NeoFinder is] the Holy Grail of media asset management”
Yes, that is the amazing praise that David Gerwitz finds for NeoFinder!

And there is more!

“..I needed something that actually worked, and NeoFinder knocks it out of the park for under fifty bucks."

“...I set about importing my files into NeoFinder. Some time later (without crashing) it had them all imported into its databases. A search (NeoFinder is also integrated with the Mac's Spotlight) takes seconds...
Oh, as for file limits: 4,000,000,000 catalogs. That's not files. That's the number of catalogs of files NeoFinder can handle. I think we're good for a while, don't you?”

“...Although now it's called NeoFinder [it] handles all sorts of media. When I say "all sorts of media," I mean it. I can't go into all the formats this thing handles, but it goes way beyond my needs to a wide variety of music formats, video formats, movie formats, document formats, and more.”
