attn. FoxTrot-Search group members:

Greetings from the sweltering Swiss summer.

We are pleased to make a preview of FoxTrot version 4.6 products available to you today for testing, in the hope that you will put these versions to work and report feedback to this group or to us directly. And yes, we just corrected the version number since it was suggested in high places that, although we had no intention to charge FoxTrot 4 users for an upgrade to this version, it was best to avoid confusing people with a full integer release

Please see below for download links and all five products.

Three main area of emphasis for testing are:

- the new mechanisms for more automated transfer of indexes from Mac to iOS via an http upload/download
- Mavericks support, for those of you who have access to it.
- performance optimizations on existing installations and OS versions

For the FoxTrot Search team:

Release notes:


Version 4.6b2 features:
Enhanced IOS Support
◦ FoxTrot indices can now be synced from FoxTrot Professional or FoxTrot Server, to FoxTrot Attaché on iOS, using web sharing. This is a very significant addition that enables seamless periodic uploads of indexes, either clear or encrypted, either containing just text or complete document sets, to be downloadable at any time from iOS. This mechanism supplements the ability to drag index files using iTunes, and introduces an optimized format for read-only index archives.

Preliminary OS X 10.9 Mavericks support
◦ Finder tags are indexed and categorized in addition to OpenMeta tags.
◦ Known issue: the FoxTrot system menu is not working correctly on Mavericks.

Miscellaneous improvements
◦ Google Earth .kml files are now indexed.
◦ A hidden preference has been added to allow indexing a given file type using the metadata importer of another file type.

Bug fixes
◦ Some text documents containing very long lines with no space character could fail to display in the preview pane.
◦ Some document types were not indexed when no specific metadata importer is found, althought they are a variant of another document type for which a compatible importer exists.

System requirements
◦ FoxTrot 4.6 requires an Intel Mac running Mac OS X 10.6 or later.
◦ Present builds work either as a 30 day demo or are enable using a FoxTrot version 4 license key


-----------------------------
>> FoxTrot Attaché Search iOS
-----------------------------

◦ Note: due to Apple's Developer site being down, we are currently unable to generate a new provisioning profile and cannot presently seed FoxTrot Attaché 4.6b2. We will post a new message to FoxTrot discuss when Apple comes back on line and Attaché becomes available.

Hi,

We are using a "family license" and I'm testing the 4.6B2. Unfortunately I
got the message that the build (4.6b2) has been expired ;-) - Do you plan
to update the 4.6-Beta-x version?

Have a nice weekend and many greetings from Munich/GY.

Regards
