It’s out! HistoryHound 1.9.5 has now been officially released, bringing a huge speed improvement, support for all of the latest Mac web browsers, the ability to search by date, and a host of other refinements and fixes to our browser searching utility. Full details are available on the HistoryHound Release Page
Thanks to all of the beta testers, localizers, and HistoryHound fans that have supported and tested the various iterations along the way. You guys have made this a great utility for all of us!
HistoryHound 1.9.5 is finally getting close to finished! With the public release of 1.9.5b1 we’ve got support for NetNewsWire and other WebKit-based apps working well again, as well as further speed increases in downloading, indexing and searching. You can find things you’ve looked at before, no matter which standalone or embedded browser you were using at the time.
Existing HistoryHound users already know how powerful its targeted searching can be – for those of you who haven’t tried HistoryHound, get the scoop at http://www.stclairsoft.com/HistoryHound/ or download the beta directly from http://www.stclairsoft.com/HistoryHound/beta.html
A new public beta version of HistoryHound is available. Again, it’s much faster than version 1.9.2, and this build includes a number of fixes for the Firefox 3 history indexer, along with better handling of some web sites that used to cause problems before. Please drop me comments at HistoryHound@stclairsoft.com if you’ve found a bug or want to make a comment or suggestion.
I’ve posted a pre-release version of HistoryHound. It now runs very smoothly and searches VERY quickly on Leopard. It’s also got options to constrain searches by date so I can, for instance, search for only the web pages I’ve visited in the last 4 days that included the words “iphone sdk”. It helps immensely in tracking down stuff you’re looking for in your browser history.
There’s also a new contextual menu that you can use to remove search results from the index or create a filter to prevent HistoryHound from indexing any further URLs that are similar to the one in your search results. And of course, there are some bug fixes and minor improvements in various places, but the big deal is just how fast it actually searches now.
And yes, I do know that Safari now has its own search field when you view your history, but it’s clunky to get to and doesn’t allow me to constrain my searches by date. Nor does it see any of the pages that I’ve visited in FireFox like HistoryHound does.
Anyway, I’m happy to have HistoryHound running about ten times faster now. Grab a copy and give it a try yourself!
