When Catalina first released, there were a few tricky problems for Hazel. Those are all resolved now and version 4.4 is out fully and updated for Catalina. I’ve been running it for a while and have no problems. I have heard from several listeners that were holding off on their Catalina update until Hazel was ready. Now it is. For version 4 owners, this is a free update. To celebrate, I am putting the Hazel Field Guide on sale for a week. Use code HAZELLOVESCATALINA to get five dollars off.
I’m a little late on this story but Hazel got a very nice update over the last few months. The new version 4.1 adds several useful features including:
- Better date matching
- The ability to make a match based on file attributes of another file in the same folder
- There’s also a new token for “any non-blank character”
These and other additions make this a nice improvement to an already useful Mac utility. I’m working on some new video content based on the updates. It will get added to the Hazel Video Field Guide when it’s finished. I’m not making any promises on a release date just yet.
