EagleFiler (http://c-command.com/eaglefiler/) — a tool that lets you archive and search mail, web pages, PDF files, word processing documents, images and more — has been updated to version 1.6. Some of the highlights of this new version are:

° The user interface is now optimized for Retina displays. Most of the icons have been enhanced or replaced.

° There are new toolbar buttons for creating plain text files, creating new files from stationery, setting a file’s label, opening the Tag Cloud window, and accessing the system Share menu. Various toolbar buttons have been combined into pairs.

° Made a variety of improvements so that the operations that happen after you open a library are faster and have less impact on foreground responsiveness. This includes loading file metadata, checking whether the indexes are up-to-date, checking for missing files, and copying tags to OpenMeta and Spotlight comments.

° Improved the display of the following file types: Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Keynote, Numbers, Pages, OmniOutliner, podcasts, chats, SVG files, Pear Note documents, .emlx files, images, and more.

° When searching a selected folder or tag, EagleFiler now also searches the folders and mailboxes inside that folder, or the subtags of that tag. (The old behavior of only searching one level can be restored by unchecking Search Contained Folders/Mailboxes/Tags in the search field menu.)

° Added support for negative tag searches via the “-” or “!” syntax. For example, you can do a Tags search for “unread -flagged” to find the unread records that are not flagged. Or you can do an Anywhere search for “tag:!apple steve” to find records containing the word “apple” that do not have the tag “steve”.

°  When you create a new file inside a smart folder, EagleFiler now applies the smart folder’s actions to it (e.g. to assign tags, set the label, or move it to a particular folder).

EagleFiler requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later and costs US$40 for new users. For registered users, version 1.6 is a free upgrade.
