Version 1.1 adds more filters with tab support
XtraLean Software has updated its file search software, DataLore 1.1. The Spotlight front-end software offers search as you type with filtering, and can search multiple Macs on a local network. It supports Boolean and wildcard queries, date ranges and file-type searching. DataLore runs as an application and a menu-bar item that controls access between Macs on a network.
Version 1.1 offers user-interface enhancements for simpler content browsing and faster local searches. A faster search algorithm goes live in v1.1, alongside more filters for narrowing searches and a new Filters tab that supports multiple filters in a single search. The new version can behave as a finder when needed and has better communication between Macs on the network that leads to faster network searches.
Mac OS X 10.5 is required alongside Spotlight. A user-license costs $20 CAD, about a dollar less in US dollars. The license is good for up to five computers on a local network.
