Enhancements and improvements:

  • Main Memory display changed to "Physical memory in use by active processes". This is the value, which is usually shown in task manager.
  • Redesign of folder tree view: now includes also network devices (previously only network locations)
  • Folder tree view and file view are updated, when folders or files are added, changed or deleted outside the program. No update if files are changed outside, which are selected and have unsaved changes inside the program.
  • In properties tables, the change of width of column "value" is considered when displaying next image. Up to now width was determined always new, based on longest entry considering a fixed maximum length.
  • New entry in menu "Tools" to show map with standard browser. This allows displaying Google maps, which is not supported by the built-in browser component. URLs for this display are stored in general configuration file. They can be changed there, new URLs can be added. Note: change of GPS-data is not possible here.
  • Exif and IPTC data are stored in UTF8, which in general is better supported by other programs to display Meta data. Via mask "Settings", it can be switched off, which means data are stored in the same way as in previous versions.
  • Exif.Photo.UserComment is written with charset=Unicode, which in general is better supported by other programs to display Meta data. Via mask "Settings", it can be switched to Ascii, which means data are stored in the same way as in previous versions.
  • When reading Exif and IPTC data, it is detected, if they are coded in UTF8 and are converted if needed. This reduces the probability that data written by other programs are not shown correct, if they contain special characters like the German umlauts (ä, ö, ü).
  • New version 0.27.3 of library exiv2 integrated, contains error fixes and some new tags.

Following errors are corrected:

  • GPS changes done via map were not saved.
  • Several minor errors.

Hint:

  • This version now requires .NET framework 4.0 (or higher).
