XRay Updated With Improved Panther Performance

Rainer Brockerhoff has released an update for XRay, bringing it to version 1.0.6. XRay is a file utility designed to be more extensive than the Mac OS "Show Info" function. The update features improved Panther performance and other enhancements. According to Rainer Brockerhoff:

Rainer Brockerhoff announces the release of version 1.0.6 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 bug fixes for Panther compatibility and minor improvements, among them:

  • Labels are displayed as in the Panther Finder
  • Time stamps appear as set by the user, instead of always using the 24-hour format
  • The option to follow aliases and symbolic links acts more consistently
