Good News! A new version of Logr has been released, packing some new longed-for features.
A lot of the users asked to make Logr work with any file extensions, rather than just .log and .txt. And this feature has been added. Now you can go to the preferences window and add or remove the types of files you want Logr to open. Note that if you want to open files with no extension, you need to add an empty string to the list of the allowed extensions. The empty string will be displayed as the words “Emtpy string”. And if you want to open all filetypes without exception, just remove all the extensions from the list.
Another good feature is the selection of encodings you want to work with. Now you can choose any of all the encodings supported by Mac OS X and set one of them as default. The encodings you selected will be displayed in the drop-down box below your log, so you can have just the ones you need at your finger tips. The one you set as default will be applied to the logs you open.
If you have trouble downloading the free version of LogrPro, which is incidentally called LogrLite, just click the bluish-grey button below the long green one. Just to remind you, the free version can open just one log instead of virtually infinitely many in the Pro version, but because it doesn’t have to be approved by Apple, it is, in fact, the next version of the app.
Now to the most important bit: the App Store link:
We are about to deliver a new application for the Mac! It is about to hit the AppStore any minute now!
LogrPro is now awaiting Apple’s certification, and there is good chance that it will pass it one of these days.
As soon as this happens, we will publish the link to download LogrPro from the Mac AppStore and publish the free version here.
The free version is both a beta and a preview version of the Pro version, it includes some features that will be present in the next Pro version, however, they may be not as stable as those in the Pro version.
The free (Lite) version will also include the link to download the full edition of the programme.
LogrLite has all the same features as LogrPro, that is it can open logs and allows you to apply filters to highlight log entries, but it can only open one log at a time.
