Belo Horizonte, Brazil – Mar 27th, 2002
Rainer Brockerhoff announces the release of XRay 1.0, the award-winning
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 in final
testing and will be release over the next few weeks.
This is the final, golden master, 1.0 release. Some new features in this
– The Classic Finder’s “labels” attribute can now be edited and used
to colorize icons.
– The selected panel can now be changed with the scroll wheel.
– Several bug fixes and user interface enhancements.
XRay is US$10 shareware. There’s a two-week trial period during which XRay
will run with full functionality; after that, Administrator authorization
can be used only once during each run.
XRay can be downloaded from the product information page at:
Mac OS X 10.1 is required, 10.1.3 recommended.
