Subject: [ANN] XRay 1.0b6 – powerful “Get Info” utility for Mac OS X

Belo Horizonte, Brazil – Dec 1st, 2001

Rainer Brockerhoff announces the immediate availability of a new public
beta of XRay, the File/Folder information utility for Mac OS X.

XRay offers users a much more detailed view of files, folders, applications
and volumes than Mac OS X’s “Show Info” window does. Permissions can be
changed without resorting to obscure terminal commands. Type, creator and
extension can be examined and changed, and their effect on file-application
binding is shown immediately. Types, creators and extensions can be
selected from pop-up menus built from the system’s own databases.

XRay can be run from the Finder’s Contextual menu, the Services menu or by
dragging and dropping items onto the application’s icon.

Third-party developers can write plug-ins that further augment XRay’s
capabilities. Preview, Custom Icon and Hex Edit plug-ins are already in the

XRay can be downloaded from the product information page at:
