The author today announced the immediate availability of version 3.0 of CDFinder, the popular shareware disk catalog tool for the Macintosh.
Together with CDWinder 1.0 for Windows, also to be released today, this is the first cross platform, networkable solution to catalog disks and CD-ROMs on a Macintosh and a PC.
CDFinder is a very fast and powerful tool to create catalog files of your hard disks, floppies, ZIPis and anything else that spins. It has a great user interface and very useful search functions. CDFinder supports drag&drop and requires at least a 68020 or PowerPC CPU. While System 7 is required, CDFinder is also fully compatible to MacOS 9. A special feature is the multi-lingual user interface (German/French/English/Italian/Swedish/Chinese).
New features in CDFinder 3.0:
- New and enhanced catalog file format. This new format is also the native format of CDWinder 1.0 for Windows, which can also read all existing catalog files.
- Creating catalogs now runs threaded, so you can create multiple catalogs at once and continue working with CDFinder at the same time.
- CDFinder optionally reads comments and the version info of files when creating or updating a catalog.
- Creating a catalog of a non-HFS or HFS+ volume now is twice as fast.
- Sorting by name now uses Natural Order, which is a bit slower, but much better.
- CDFinder finally is able to eject multi-session CD volumes correctly!
- As always, all known bugs have been fixed.
You can find more information on the new version at the CDFinder Web site. CDFinder is priced at US$20 shareware.
