> • By default, the content of log files and generic XML files is no

>
>
> • Added the ability to disable some file types for content indexing,
> when indexing predefined locations, such as Documents or Downloads.
>
>
> • Outlook 2015, Dropbox and iCloud Drive support
>
>
> • Added a “view resource hogs” button in the index configuration window;
> this can help removing from your index huge files that contain few
> interesting text but many encoded, garbled or numerical data.
>
>
> • Email messages stored or exported to the .mbox format with a ‘TEXT’
> HFS file type are no longer indexed by contents (this would index a bunch
> of encoded data).
>
>
> • Contact’s phone numbers are also indexed unformatted (with no space).
>
>
> • When a third party Spotlight metadata importer has a memory leak, it

> • Some files could be displayed using their “title” metadata attribute

>
> • When displaying found words in some PDF documents, the document could
> be scrolled horizontally excessively.
>
>
> • Fixed a case where FoxTrot could fail to update the index, after
> FoxTrot’s preferences have been erased.
>
>
> • Fixed a bug in FoxTrot’s system menu on OS X 10.8.
