Update was posted Feb. 27 to all versions.  Update Contains the following changes:

6.2.85

  • Enhancement: Characterset Detection: MarcEdit is including a tool that will provide a heuristical analysis of a file to provide best guess characterset detection. (http://blog.reeset.net/archives/1897)
  • Enhancement: Build New Tool Function: Adding a find macro to the function so that users can now identify specific fields when building new fields from data in a MARC record. (http://blog.reeset.net/archives/1902)
  • Update: Build Links — improved handling of MESH data ** Update: Build Links — improved handling of AAT data
  • Update: Build Links — improved handling of ULAN data
  • Update: Build Links — added work around to character escaping issues found in .NET 4.0. Issue impacts URIs with trailing periods and slashes (/). Apparently, the URI encoding tool doesn’t escape them properly because of how Windows handles file paths.
  • Update: Build Links — Rules file updated to include refined definitions for the 6xx fields.
  • Update: MarcEdit Command-Line: program updated to include new build links functional updates
  • Update: COM object: Updated character encoding switching to simplify streaming functions.
  • Update: Validate Headings: Integrated rules file into checking.
  • Bug Fix: Validate Headings: headings validation was being tripped by the URI escaping issue in .NET 4.0. This has been corrected.
  • Update: RDA Helper: Finished code refinements
  • Update: Build Links — tool is now asynchronous
  • Enhancement: Build Links — Users can now select and build their own rules files
  • Enhancement: Build Links — Tool now includes a function that will track resolution speed from linked services and attempt to provide notification when services are performing poorly. First version won’t identify particular services — just that data isn’t being processed in a timely manner.
  • Bug Fix: Character Conversion — UTF-8 to MARC-8, the {dollar} literal isn’t being converted back to a literal dollar sign. This is related to removing the fall back entity checking in the last update. This has been corrected.
