Camera Bits has released version 4.5.4 of Photo Mechanic, its pro photo browsing and transmitting application for Mac and Windows. Minor feature tweaks and bug fixes are the main changes in this release, which is a free update for those who licensed the software on or after March 2007.
Photo Mechanic 4.5.4 is available for download here, or via the Software Update mechanism of the program itself. The user guide was also recently amended, and is current as of v4.5.3.
The changes are described in the version history below:

(Win) The Structured Keywords Panel now sorts correctly for non-English languages.
