Release Notes

This is version 1.2 of File Meta.

To migrate from a previous version, uninstall File Metadata, and install Release 1.2. All file association settings and all previously entered metadata will be preserved.

The changes from version 1.1 are:
  • Support for selecting multiple extensions in the File Association Manager. This is the only change from the 1.2 release candidate.
  • Incorporation of command line support into the main release. This is an optional component that installs by default, but can be deselected during installation.
  • Fixes for two issues.
    1. A crash which occurred when the metadata context menu was opened on a file which was not currently accessible.
    2. Previously, trying to read a property value on a file with no metadata at all created an empty alternate stream. This created unwanted footprint, particularly when files are indexed by Windows search. This fix ensures that an alternate stream is created only when the first property value is written.

Reviews for this release

So far very happy. Also happy with the excellent speedy support for what is, after all, a free product.

Have been looking for long for this solution, that tries uses native Windows Explorer functionality. Very good!

Thanks Dijji, exactly what i wanted and works as advertised. Have noticed it does need explorer restarted whenever new rules are added, so could use a reminder popup to do that, but otherwise an excellent program

The tool could be improved by adding the featured of creating custom properties. The documentation and discussion alone is highly welcome in the muddy waters of properties where the only existing example is SteakRecipes.
