Cumulus improves Vista, Office, CS3 support

Cumulus 7.5 released

Canto Software today released Cumulus 7.5 with enhanced support for Windows Vista, Office 2007, and Adobe InDesign CS3 in addition to numerous new features. Cumulus is designed as digital asset management software that enables work groups to easily find, share, and publish needed files regardless of where those files are stored. Cumulus 7.5 is available for free to Cumulus Workgroup and Cumulus Enterprise customers on UAP or Software Maintenance subscriptions. The software requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later (pricing available upon request).

The latest revision enables users to hide master category tabs from certain users or groups to provide an easier-to-understand workspace, and adds the ability for Cumulus 7.5 to perform user-defined "trigger" actions when a metadata field is changed to a certain value.

Cumulus 7.5 includes a collection basket that enables users to easily gather assets via drag-and-drop for batch access and processing, while new formula-based metadata fields can automatically determine an image's orientation or create space-efficient output displays for views as well as reports. The built-in formula editor also features an in-line help reference to ease the process of formula creation for all users.

Enhanced metadata support is included for Apple's iWork suite of applications with more than 40 new file formats. The update also increases support for RAW digital camera formats by adding 50 camera models, bringing the total number of RAW formats successfully tested to 185.

Cumulus 7.5 adds catalog journalling designed to ensure no catalog damage stems from power outages or system failures, and Canto Web Clients are updated to include the Calendar and other side panels previously available only in the native clients. Users can also make category assignments over the Web via drag-and-drop, while "mass" metadata edits are possible alongside improved performance for high-traffic sites serving hundreds of simultaneous users.
