MarcEdit 6.1 (Windows/Linux)/MarcEdit Mac (1.1.25) Update

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit

So, this update is a bit of a biggie.  If you are a Mac user, the program officially moves out of the Preview and into release.  If you are a Mac user, this version brings the following changes:

****************************
** 1.1.25 ChangeLog
****************************

  • Bug Fix: MarcEditor — changes may not be retained after save if you make manual edits following a global updated.
  • Enhancement: Delimited Text Translator completed.
  • Enhancement: Export Tab Delimited complete
  • Enhancement: Validate Headings Tool complete
  • Enhancement: Build New Field Tool Complete
  • Enhancement: Build New Field Tool added to the Task Manager
  • Update: Linked Data Tool — Added Embed OCLC Work option
  • Update: Linked Data Tool — Enhance pattern matching
  • Update: RDA Helper — Updated for parity with the Windows Version of MarcEdit
    * Update: MarcValidator — Enhancements to support better checking when looking at the mnemonic format.

If you are on the Windows/Linux version – you’ll see the following changes:

*************************************************
* 6.1.60 ChangeLog
*************************************************

  • Update: Validate Headings — Updated patterns to improve the process for handling heading validation.
  • Enhancement: Build New Field — Added a new global editing tool that provides a pattern-based approach to building new field data.
  • Update: Added the Build New Field function to the Task Management tool.
  • UI Updates: Specific to support Windows 10.

The Windows update is a significant one.  A lot of work went into the Validate Headings function, which impacts the Linked Data tools and the underlying linked data engine.  Additionally, the Build New Fields tool provides a new global editing function that should simplify complex edits.  If I can find the time, I’ll try to mark up a youtube video demoing the process.

You can get the updates from the MarcEdit downloads page: http://marcedit.reeset.net/downloads or if you have MarcEdit configured to check automated updates – the tool will notify you of the update and provide a method for you to download it.

If you have questions – let me know.
