XRay Gets Full Release

Rainer Brockerhoff is now shipping the full version of XRay, bringing it to version 1.0. XRay is a file utility designed to be more extensive than the Mac OS "Show Info" function. The app ships with several features including bug fixes and interface enhancements. According to Rainer Brockerhoff:

Rainer Brockerhoff announces the release of XRay 1.0, the award-winning File/Folder information utility for Mac OS X.

XRay offers users a much more detailed view of files, folders, applications and volumes than Mac OS Xis "Show Info" window does. Permissions can be changed without resorting to obscure terminal commands. Type, creator and extension can be examined and changed, and their effect on file-application binding is shown immediately. Types, creators and extensions can be selected from pop-up menus built from the systemis own databases.

This is the final, golden master, 1.0 release. Some new features in this version are:

  • The Classic Finderis "labels" attribute can now be edited and used to colorize icons
  • The selected panel can now be changed with the scroll wheel
  • Several bug fixes and user interface enhancements
