Cocoatech Releases Path Finder 8.0

San Francisco, California - Cocoatech is thrilled to announce the release of Path Finder 8.0, a long awaited major update that had been under development for over three years. Path Finder allows you to view hidden files, compare, merge and synchronize folders, batch rename and batch select files, use Dual Pane and full keyboard navigation to browse your file system and much more. Path Finder is one of the oldest apps on the Mac OS X market (*first released in 2001) and boasts a large and loyal userbase. The application is extremely customizable and allows you to work how you want. Become a master of file management with Path Finder 8.0!

Path Finder 8 lays the foundation for a total redesign and rewrite of the very powerful file manager. Estimated 40% of the internal code is new. Path Finder 8 brings new customization possibilities, as well as performance and stability enhancements. Some improvements will not be directly visible to users, but a lot of things in the code itself are internally changed, made better, faster and more robust. The code was made modern and more modular, so future news and changes will fit much easier and faster.

The big new thing in version 8 are the way modules are organized and used within the new and flexible modules structure. You can put as many modules in a single window as you need, they can be arbitrarily arranged, dismissed, closed and dragged out of the window. They can be assigned to either left or right pane and they are extensively customizable. With new module structure, Path Finder probably becomes the most configurable and flexible Mac application on the market.
