Release Notes

This is version 1.4 of File Meta. It has now been replaced by version 1.5 and is obsolete.
I will keep this download here for a while in case people wonder what happened to it. And because it got a nice review!

To migrate from a previous version, uninstall File Metadata, and install Release 1.4. All file association settings and all previously entered metadata will be preserved.

The changes from version 1.3 are:
  • Allow the use of File Meta when there is already a property handler installed. The existing property handler is used to read existing metadata, but all new or updated metadata property values are written to the alternate stream store used by File Meta. The existing Preview Panel and Details properties are used as a starting point to which any other properties desired can be added.
  • Support the configuration of the properties shown in the Info Tip displayed when the mouse hovers over a file in Explorer.
  • Fix a bug when using the context menu to export metadata to XML files with long pathnames.

Reviews for this release

Excellent, works well with Windows 10 64-bit, and extended attributes are supported (and maintained during file copy/move) on my Synology NAS, which is a key point for me. Excellent tool!
