FileBot 4.5

Post by rednoah » 05 Oct 2014, 17:00

FileBot 4.5 is out! Get it here!

This is a new major release brings lots of improvements in almost all aspects. It'll run smoother than ever!

Features:
* Allow users to choose between (default) Opportunistic / (new) Strict mode matching
* Fix "freezing" issues when loading (very) large sets of files
* Improved episode / movie / music auto-detection and matching
* Improved support for non-English language preferences
* --action duplicate to duplicate files via hardlink when possible or copy when necessary
* --db xattr for fast offline re-processing using previously stored xattr metadata
* New bindings {model} and {self} for advanced use cases
* Lots of optimizations and usability improvements (especially on Mac OS X)

Changes:
* {primaryTitle} now maps to the original movie name (and not the English movie name)
* Inherit ACLs when moving / copying files to remote folders
* Dropped support for Java 7 (so Java 8 is required now)

:idea: If you have not yet installed Java 8 you will need to download it from here. The latest Java 8 is included if you download FileBot 4.5 from the Mac App Store or via the Ubuntu Software Center.
My (very excellent) support depends on Windows Store and Mac App Store sales and Patreon support. Paying users, donors and everyone who contributes to FileBot in one way or another will get the very best support.

:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
