Camera Bits posts final version of Photo Mechanic 4.6.8  
Wednesday, September 14, 2011 | by Rob Galbraith
Initially available as a trio of public betas, Camera Bits has now posted the final version of Photo Mechanic 4.6.8 for Mac and Windows. The latest release of the speedy pro photo browser and longtime anchor in our own workflow corrects incompatibilities introduced by Mac OS X Lion, while both Mac and Windows versions add support for RAW files captured with the Olympus E-PL2, Panasonic DMC-GF2 and DMC-GH2 and fix a handful of minor bugs.

The full list of stated changes is below. If you're on the Mac, be sure to download the iteration of Photo Mechanic 4.6.8 that's intended for your operating system version.

Version 4.6.8

* (Mac) Updated the slideshow and live slideshow to work with Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion).  Please read the note above if you are using Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger) or 10.5.x (Leopard) as you will need a special "legacy" build that uses the old slideshow.  HINT: To move the slideshow to a different monitor, temporarily use the 'F' key to toggle between full screen and window mode, drag the slideshow window to a different monitor, and then resume to full screen with 'F' key.
* Added support for RAW ORF files from the Olympus E-P3, E-PL2, DMC-GF2, and DMC-GH2.
* Fixed {frame} and {frame4} variables for JPEG and NEF files saved from Capture NX2.
* When uploading, the cached upload images (not your originals) are deleted when their image processing is complete.  Upload images are also deleted if the upload is terminated.
* (Win) Autoplay will now launch Photo Mechanic and if configured to ingest, PM will display the ingest dialog.
* Fixed an issue with Ingest where the {seqn} value would be incremented when using a local IPTC Stationery Pad that didn't contain the {seqn} variable (but the global IPTC Stationery Pad did).
* The {seqn} value is only incremented by one when saving from Preview window.
* Structured Keywords are now written to IPTC metadata without spaces around the '|' separator character.  This makes them consistent with the way the XMP data is represented.
* Fixed an issue that would cause improperly formatted but otherwise valid GPS coordinates to be discarded.
* Fixed an issue with expanding extremely large {variable} lookups.
* (Mac) Fixed an issue in the Preview window that would cause the user's choice of layout to be disregarded.
* (Max) Fixed Navigator Sidebar issues when running on Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion).
* (Mac) Fixed an issue with launching classic (Rosetta) Photoshop droplets.
* PEF files now treated properly as TIFF-based RAW.
* Enabled cropping feature for RAW Sony formats ARW, SR2, and SRF.
* Fixed handling of smart quotes (e.g. pasted in by Word) in the Text Exporter.
