updated 12:00 pm EDT, Tue May 1, 2007

Xfile package released

Rixstep has released Xfile package as a standalone application suite for Mac OS X. The package includes more than a dozen closely integrated file management utilities. Xfile is touted as the only file manager for Mac OS X capable of handling all file systems -- including HFS+, HFS+ case-sensitive, UFS, volfs, and ZFS -- that details all file information and offers full editing capabilities for system features. Xfile manages 'file flags' as well as 'sticky bits,' displays major/minor device numbers alongside inodes, and shows the number of links to files as well as blocks used and optimal block sizes. Additional utilities allow users to manipulate two UNIX and five HFS timestamps with batch and recursive mode timestamping. Xfile is priced at $45 for a single user license (specific system requirements were unavailable).
