Daminion 6.8 release

Daminion 0.9.7b Released

Minor Daminion update available to download.

Daminion 0.9.7b allows you to import Microsoft Office documents, including Office 2007 formats (files with extensions: .doc, .xls, .ppt, .docx, .xlsx, .pptx). Daminion Server customers can now update Daminion Clients automatically from the server computer in silent mode. Batch tag assignment and file removal operations can now be applied to all items in the query and are no longer limited by page size only.

There are over 20 bug fixes and minor, but useful, improvements.

We also plan to add a smart way to publish your images (including RAW files) on tablets and mobile devices (iPAD, iPhone, Android based devices) as well as on your corporate web-site via collections. As a first step towards this feature we have made collections hierarchical in this version.

Added Support for Microsoft Office Documents

Support for Microsoft Office Documents

Microsoft Office documents (including Microsoft Office 2007) and PDF documents can now be added to Daminion. The table below shows how Daminion tags are mapped to metadata in Office documents:

Office Metadata Daminion Tags
Title Title
Subject Document Subject
Manager Document Manager
Creator Authors
Comments Comments
Tags Keywords
Creation DateTime Creation DateTime
Application Software
Company Copyrights
Page Count Number of Pages

Displaying thumbnails are supported only if they are present in the metadata. To include Thumbnails in documents please check the “Save Thumbnails” option when saving your documents with Microsoft Office products. Please note that editing DateCreated, ApplicationName fields are supported for .docx, .xlsx, .pptx formats only. This is a limitation of Microsoft’s DSOfile.dll

  • Rescan Folders is now represented correctly for outside metadata changes in shared catalogs
