Hazel 3.1 is here

Fresh from the Noodlesoft Danger Labs is Hazel 3.1 with a bunch of spiffy new things. The two main features this time around are file uploading and matching against file contents. If you don’t use Hazel, maybe these sound a bit abstract to you but for people that use it, it fills a couple big holes in their workflows.

But instead of elaborating on these myself, I’ve been fortunate to have a couple users do the work for me. Demonstrating use of the new file upload facility, Sid O’Neill shows his workflow for resizing and uploading images to his server

Next up is David Sparks (MacSparky and MacPowerUsers Podcast) showing how to match and extract dates out of your files and use them for renaming. Includes a great video so definitely check it out.

Of course, there are a bunch of other things in this release. You can find the full list here.

The response from customers have been great. I’ve gotten a lot of wonderful emails from people so far which has solidified my dedication to the product even more. As mentioned in my last post, I will be looking into Mavericks support, with a particular interest in its tagging feature, in a future release.

Also, in regards to the new upload feature, watch this space in the coming weeks as I’ll have something for you developers.

    Wow! the date field is really super useful!
    I just started using Hazel and was asking myself this very question yesterday night…

    Unfortunately I live in a french-speaking country, and in french people rarely use a number to indicate the month… So I can not use the feature yet :/ Would it be possible without too much hassle to identify months indicators with a table so that each person could insert the months names in any language? i.e say janvier –> 01 février–>02 and so forth… ?

    thank you!

    Actually, Hazel will use whatever language you have set in OS X in addition to English. So, it should be able to identify months in French if that is what you set on your system. To get Hazel to identify textual months instead of numerical, after you drag the month attribute in, click on it and set it use the textual representation. If you need help with this, email support.
