XMenu 1.9 and EasyFind 4.5 Updated

Posted July 8, 2009 at 3:21pm by iClarified
DEVONtechnologies has released updates for their popular freeware find-find utility EasyFind and the menu bar application and file launcher XMenu. The updates add a number of useful features to the freeware utilities EasyFind and XMenu and fix a few minor bugs. EasyFind 4.5 now supports Quick Look, highlights occurrences in file and folder names, and offers the same extended Boolean operators that are used by DEVONthink and DEVONagent. EasyFind 4.5 can conduct searches using fuzzy logic, ignores umlauted characters if desired, and comes with a standard toolbar now.

XMenu 1.9 adds a new 'snippets' menu that lets the user insert the contents of plain and rich text snippets, clippings, and Internet location files with a single menu choice. By using folders (creating sub-menus) users can store virtually unlimited numbers of text modules and still access them quickly and conveniently. New menu icons make the XMenu menus easier to distinguish.

"The new Snippets menu makes XMenu even more useful. All your frequently used text bits, even web addresses, are now just one click away. We are happy to support the great Mac user community by offering XMenu and EasyFind free of charge", comments Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.

Background: Easyfind

EasyFind finds files, folders, or contents in any file without the need for indexing. This is especially useful if you are tired of slow or impossible indexing, outdated or corrupted indexes, or if you are just looking for missing features like case sensitive or insensitive search, Boolean operators, wildcards, or searching for phrases. EasyFind previews files using QuickLook on Mac OS X 10.5 or later.

* Boolean operators, wildcards, phrases
* Extended Boolean operators, similar to DEVONthink and DEVONagent
* Immediate searches, no indexing required
* Finds invisible files and files inside packages (something Spotlight doesn't do)
* Displays the location of each file in a separate column
* Previews files using QuickLook (Mac OS X 10.5 or later)
* Provides contextual menus and services
* Supports drag-and-drop
* Very responsive, thanks to multithreading
* Uses very little memory

Background: Xmenu

XMenu adds one or more global menus to the right side of the menu bar. They give you access to your preferred applications, folders, documents, files, and snippets. Launch any application or insert text snippets or URLs into your email messages or Pages documents with a single menu choice.

* No need for configuration
* Six predefined folders: Applications, Developer Applications, Home, Documents, User-Defined, and Snippets
* Keeps all your snippets and text modules handy
* Operates as a menu extra, requires no hacks or extensions
