There’s been quite a bit of debate in Ironic Software’s forums about OpenMeta. I was initially wary of some of the implementation details, but after discussing it with Tom Andersen, who wrote the OpenMeta code, I’m confident it will serve us all well. I’ve posted a summary of my thoughts on their forums at http://ironicsoftware.com/community/comments.php?DiscussionID=755/.
Now that I’m comfortable with OpenMeta’s direction, I’ve finished a pre-release build of Default Folder X that provides OpenMeta tagging support. You can download it here:
Please install it and have a look. I’d appreciate hearing your thoughts and reports of any bugs you find. The best way to submit your comments is via email to DefaultFolder@stclairsoft.com.
