Super Get Info 1.0.5 Now Available From Bare Bones Software
Powerful File Info Utility for Mac OS X

Bedford, MA — November 27, 2001 — Bare Bones Software today announced the
release and immediate availability of Super Get Info 1.0.5. Super Get Info
is a file and folder info utility for Mac OS X, offering a powerful,
flexible, well-designed alternative to the “Show Info” command provided by
the Mac OS X Finder.

New in version 1.0.5 is a preference setting to change the keyboard
shortcut used to invoke Super Get Info from within the Finder. Optional
modifier keys can be added to the keystroke to provide a wider range of
shortcut options and avoid conflicts with other utilities that provide
keyboard shortcuts in the Finder.

Improvements to Super Get Info’s “Empty Trash” capabilities include the
ability to choose the command directly from the Super Get Info Dock menu,
as well a new preference setting to specify whether Super Get Info presents
a warning dialog before emptying the Trash. This update also incorporates
various other minor refinements and fixes for reported issues.


Super Get Info enables the user to open a separate information window for
each selected Finder item, so that multiple selected items can be viewed
and edited discretely. It also allows the user to view and edit the Mac OS
type and creator codes for a given file; view and edit the Unix owner,
group, and permission settings for any file or folder; and change a file’s
creation and modification dates.

Super Get Info is commercial software, and costs US$20 to purchase. A
fully-functional demo version which expires after 14 days is available.

Super Get Info requires Mac OS X 10.0 or later, and will not run on any
earlier version of the Mac OS. Mac OS X 10.1 or later is strongly
recommended (and is required for the Finder keyboard shortcut and Dock menu
