PR: XRay 1.0b6 released Press Rel
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 works.

Further information and a download link are provided on the XRay product information page.

[Editor's note: XRay is a very impressive application! Well worth a download if you do much work manipulating file settings. And the return of third-party contextual menus in the Finder is very nice to see.]
