Xray is a flexible and powerful "Get Info" program that allows you to access information about a file via the Finder's contextual menu, icon drag&drop or the Services menu. Will accept third-party plugins for feature expansion.
What's New
Version 1.1:
  • When batch removing resource forks from the 'Change Type and Creator for Enclosedâ' dialog, XRay would, under certain circumstances, stop prematurely when one of the items already had an empty resource fork. This has been fixed.
  • Cocoa applications with no NIB files were being incorrectly reported as Carbon applications.
  • Dual-fork Mach-O files (yes, they exist!) were being incorrectly reported as Classic 68K applications.
  • Xcode, Interface Builder and other Cocoa applications that depended upon a certain minimum JVM version were being incorrectly reported as Java applications.
  • When running XRay as administrator, sometimes preference changes were being incorrectly saved to the 'root' user's folder. This has been fixed.
  • The eSellerate library has been updated to its latest version (3.5.6), making registration faster - at least until a new version comes out.
  • Generic documents could be incorrectly reported as 'Unix Executable File' if their executable permission was set. Actually, this seems to be a Panther bug; XRay now checks the file contents to see if the file is really executable object code, and reports it as such. (Some '.DS_Store' files seem especially susceptible to this.)
  • Separate counts are now done for invisible files and folders, instead of conflating them into one count as previously.
  • XRay now sends the user's Mac OS X version number back to my server when the online version checking facility is used, and the 'Check for Updates' window is opened automatically when you upgrade XRay. Please click on it whenever you upgrade XRay or your system, to give me statistics about which versions of Mac OS X are still being used; from what I see so far, 10.1.x is completely dead and 10.2.x (Jaguar) very nearly so.
  • A crash when starting up XRay with some system configurations has been fixed.
  • Some internal fixes and adjustments have been made.

The new batch mode was just what I needed, thanks Rainer! And putting an Applications Folder alias in the disk window for simple drag&drop installation, I just loved this...
