Version 7.0:
- A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with El Capitan and Sierra, and as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
- The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the Application in particular under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan and 10.12 Sierra:
Under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan and 10.12 Sierra, if you're launching the Application for the first time, maybe Mac OS's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the Application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the Application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developper).

4. How to uninstall it?
There should be no reason to do this. ;-)
However, if you really want, then you just have to throw the Application into the trash, and that's all.

5. How to use it?
Drag and drop a file or a folder in the list box at the top of the window, or on the application's icon, or select it with the "File/Open..." menu.
The list of files and folders located in the same folder as the dropped file or in the dropped folder appears.
You can click on a file or a folder to select it in the list in order to display and modify its properties.
You can double-click on a folder to open it in the list. Or you can click on the triangle to open the parent folder.
When a file or a folder is selected, you can modify its name, its type, its creator, its creation date, its creation time, its modification date, its modification time, its lock, its visibility and its extension visibility.
Its type and creator can be modified manually, by selecting another file or by dropping another file on the bevel button.
Its creation date and modification date can be reset to today.
