MarcEdit MacOS 3 has Arrived!

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit

MarcEdit MacOS 3 is the latest branch of the MarcEdit 7 family. MarcEdit MacOS 3 represents the next generational update for MarcEdit on the Mac and is functionally equivalent to MarcEdit 7. MarcEdit MacOS 3 introduces the following features:

  1. Startup Wizard
  2. Clustering Tools
  3. New Linked Data Framework
  4. New Task Management and Task Processing
  5. Task Broker
  6. OCLC Integration with OCLC Profiles
  7. OCLC Integration and search in the MarcEditor
  8. New Global Editing Tools
  9. Updated UI
  10. More

 

There are also a couple things that are currently missing that I’ll be filling in over the next couple of weeks. Presently, the following elements are missing in the MacOS version:

  1. OCLC Downloader
  2. OCLC Bib Uploader (local and non-local)
  3. OCLC Holdings update (update for profiles)
  4. Task Processing Updates
  5. Need to update Editor Functions
    1. Dedup tool – Add/Delete Function
    2. Move tool — Copy Field Function
    3. RDA Helper — 040 $b language
    4. Edit Shortcuts — generate paired ISBN-13
    5. Replace Function — Exact word match
    6. Extract/Delete Selected Records — Exact word match
  6. Connect the search dropdown
    1. Add to the MARC Tools Window
    2. Add to the MarcEditor Window
    3. Connect to the Main Window
  7. Update Configuration information
  8. XML Profiler
  9. Linked Data File Editor
  10. Startup Wizard

Rather than hold the update till these elements are completed, I’m making the MarcEdit MacOS version available now so that users can be testing and interacting with the tooling, and I’ll finish adding these remaining elements to the application. Once completed, all versions of MarcEdit will share the same functionality, save for elements that rely on technology or practices tied to a specific operating system.

Updated UI

The MarcEdit MacOS 3 introduces a new UI. While the UI is still reflective of MacOS best practices, it also shares many of the design elements developed as part of MarcEdit 7. This includes new elements like the StartUp wizard with Fluffy Install agent:

 

The Setup Wizard provides users the ability to customize various application settings, as well as import previous settings from earlier versions of MarcEdit.

 

Updates to the UI

New Clustering tools

MarcEdit MacOS 3 provides MacOS users more tools, more help, more speed…it gives you more, so you can do more.
