File RoundUp Release Notes

VERSION 2.6.3 is the current release of File RoundUp.

The 2.6 update is a Major update. This release includes a number of major changes. The most visible, in OS X, is the use of the Finder fonts and icons for all objects, and two new fields - file Kind and Media/MP3 Info. The Kind field, only shown by default in Simple User Mode, displays the same type of information the like-named field in the Finder displays. The Media MP3/Info field displays MP3 tags or media (image/movie/sound) characteristics.
This release also adds two new Batch menu functions: Play Media and Create Movie Previews. It also fixes numerous bugs, many of them introduced in 2.5.0.

Packages, such as used for most OS X application, are now handled similar to the Finder, as single file records, with the option to treat them as normal folders. Packages are actually folders containing many files and folders which normally should not be moved or renamed, so hiding them from the user normally makes sense. Sometimes, pieces may be removed to save space, for example, extra language files, or added to add functionality, like plug-ins. All batch functions, including Compare Contents, now work with packages as if they were single files.

Play Media looks for sound or video files in the selected files. If it finds one or more, it opens a Player window and loads the first sound or video file. After the first file is completed, the second will automatically be loaded and played. The controller is a standard QuickTime controller, and standard key commands are available. "Space" starts and stop. When playback is suspended, left and right arrow keys go back or forward one frame per click. When playing, these keys skip 10 seconds per click.
Command-option-left or right skips to the previous or next playable file.

VERSION 2.1 was released 9/9/2002

File RoundUp Version 2.1 Changes

Ported application to Carbon for OS X 10.0 through 10.2 Jaguar with Aqua controls.

Major changes include - Search Sets (replacing Special functions), redesigned Search Palette, Improved Database, Live Scrolling, Secure Deletes, Batch Function Lockout option, Multiple Folder Selections, Folder Batch Functions, Configuration Set editor

Search Sets - A "Search Set" contains all the information needed to repeat a complex search function, including any number of parameters.
Search Sets may be saved as files, which can be loaded by double-clicking in the Finder.
Search Palette - now has a new tabbed design, with functions formerly in the separate Selection Control Palette now available here.
Improved List Database - records are larger but contain much more information and have room for growth.  Allows many functions to be faster because it reduces need to access disk.  Database still takes up less room on disk than competing software!
Secure Deletes - file deletes may now be optionally "Secure", meaning the file is completely overwritten to eliminate the ability to retrieve any file contents.
Batch Function Lockout option - Batch functions that change files (like copy, move, delete, rename) can now be made accessible only when a password is entered, allowing administrators to limit access to these powerful functions.
Folder Batch functions - Set Info, Rename, Show in Finder can now be performed on one or more folder selection as well as file selections.
Folders may now be selected and dragged.  Empty folders are displayed and created when copying.
