Hazel 5.2.1

Hazel 5.2.1

Hazel is your personal housekeeper, organizing and cleaning folders based on rules you define. Hazel can also manage your trash and uninstall your applications.

Organize your files using a familiar rule interface. Filter on the file's name, type, date, the site or email address it came from and more. And do more than just file. You can set color labels, Spotlight keywords and comments and even archive files. Hazel also cleans, sporting options to clean out incomplete and duplicate downloads. All this is done automatically in the background allowing you to focus on your real work.

In addition, Hazel can manage your Trash for you, relieving you of having to empty it yourself.

What's New:

Version 5.2.1:

Interface changes:

  • When syncing rules between two folders on the same machine, the active state of each rule is no longer shared between the folders. It should basically behave as it does when syncing across machines.
  • When editing/creating a rule that is part of a synced ruleset, if the ruleset was updated elsewhere and synced locally, it may cause you to be unable to save your rule. This has been fixed.
  • Fixed crashes in remote server browser.
  • In cases where rules were corrupted in a certain way, Hazel would launch with windows only showing outlines. This has been addressed.
  • Fixed not being able to cancel out of the Upload connection window.
  • Fixed freeze when trying to create a second custom table attribute in the same rule.
  • Table and list editing windows no longer grow too wide if the file path is really long.
  • Various other fixes and tweaks.

Core changes:

  • When using "Contents contains", Hazel will now fall back to doing a direct scan of the file (as it does with "Contents contain match") if it detects that the file has not been indexed by Spotlight.
  • Fixed copying files across volumes where the initial copy would fail because the destination does not support metadata. There was fall back code in place to perform the copy again without attributes which was not working properly.
  • Misc fixes.
