XRay Update Adds Minor Feature Enhancements

Rainer Brockerhoff has released an update for XRay, bringing it to version 1.0.5. XRay is a file utility designed to be more extensive than the Mac OS "Show Info" function. The update features minor performance enhancements. According to Rainer Brockerhoff:

Rainer Brockerhoff announces the release of version 1.0.5 of XRay, the 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 version has many bug fixes and minor improvements, among them:

  • Support for registration over Kagi
  • On-line version checking
  • At the start of a run, XRay now checks if the tools, folders and files it needs are present and have the correct permissions
  • The "Bind All Similar Items..." dialog now gives detailed information about which items will be affected by the binding
  • In 10.2, the XRay Contextual Menu now shows filenames containing Japanese or accented characters correctly
