---------------------------------------------------------------------- GrandPerspective, Version 1.7.0 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- * INTRODUCTION GrandPerspective is a small utility for Mac OS X that can draw two- dimensional views of disk use within a file system. This can help you to manage your disk, as you can easily spot which files and folders take up the most space. The graphical representation is a logical one, where each file is shown as a rectangle with an area proportional to the file's size. Files in the same folder appear together, but other than that the placement of files is arbitrary. You can observe this by resizing the view window. The location of files will change, in order to keep the rectangles as square as possible. * SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS - Mac OS X, 10.7 or higher - Intel processor * CONTENTS This version of GrandPerspective is released as two separate files: * GrandPerspective-1_7_0.dmg This is the main release file. It contains all you need to run the application. To install the application, open the disk image and drag the application icon onto your Applications folder, or wher'ever you want to put it onto your file system. Next, run the application by clicking on the icon. * GrandPerspective-1_7_0-src.tgz This contains the source code of the application. It consists of the Objective C source code, as well as various auxiliary files, such as the nib files that are used to construct the GUI. Note: From Version 1.0 onwards localized versions of GrandPerspective are released for a subset of releases, those whose second number in the version string is even. These versions do not introduce new features. Next to updated translated resources they will only include fixes, minor cosmetic changes, and refactoring "behind the scenes". * LICENSE The GrandPerspective application has been released as Open Source under the GNU General Public License. See COPYING.txt for details. * THE WEBSITE For more information about the application, please visit the website at http://grandperspectiv.sourceforge.net. From there, you can download the latest release of the software. It is also possible to report bugs, make a donation, suggest additional features, provide more general feedback, etc. * CREDITS Special thanks to all that have provided localizations of the application: Chris Li, Maxime Hadjinlian, Javier Alfonso and Helge Baumann. Many thanks to everyone that has shown support by making donations. They have been used to fund the required upgrade to Leopard, which has enabled me to build Universal Binaries. Thanks to Aaron Madlon-Kay for noticing, investigating and fixing the scan data format compatibility problem caused by a small datetime formatting change introduced in OS X 10.11 and for updating the source code for XCode 7.2. Also thanks to Martin Kahr who made Universal Binaries available for early releases of GrandPerspective, and to Craig Hughes who helped me early on to make the source code Intel-compatible. Thanks to Miles Ponson (iTweek) for providing the free set of "knobs" icons, three of which I used for the toolbar (the images for the Reveal, Delete and Rescan actions to be precise; the Open icon is my own concoction). Thanks to Keith Blount for developing and making available the source code of various handy utility classes. His KBPopUpToolbarItem class provides the pop-up menu functionality of the Rescan button in the toolbar. Thanks to the many users that have reported bugs and suggested improvements. This has definitely made the application better than it would otherwise have been. Lucky0 deserves a special mention for the amount of useful feedback given. Finally thanks to all that have helped to get the word out about the application. Developing the application may be fun, but having actual users makes it worthwhile. * CONTACT DETAILS The GrandPerspective application has been developed by Erwin Bonsma. Please visit the website at http://grandperspectiv.sourceforge.net for details on how to contact me. ====================================================================== GrandPerspective Change Log ====================================================================== ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 1.7.0, 05-05-2016 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- New functionality: - Added "Recent Scans" menu item to easily repeat common scans across invocations of the app. - Added Welcome window on start-up (instead of popping up Scan Dialog). - The new window shows the application icon to clearly associate it with the app, as well as a random tagline describing the app. - The new window still lets you start a new scan. - The new window also offers the ability to repeat a recent scan or to go to the help documentation, which may help new users. - Prepared app for distribution in Mac App Store by enabling sandbox - Delete options will be disabled when the app does not have the necessary write permissions.

Minor improvements: - Improvements to the appearance of the view window: - Moved info about selected item to statusbar. - Removed borders around view. - Not showing rectangle around outermost item in the selected path unless necessary. - Positioning newly opened view windows so they cascade. - When creating a derived view window its size matches that of the original window. - Sorted the available tests in the "Edit Filter" window by name. - Sibling directories are scanned depending on their creation date (oldest first). This deterministic ordering is particularly helpful when scanning an entire TimeMachine backup as hard-linked files will be included in the backup where they first appeared. - Made selection automatically stick to end-point when reaching a file after moving selection down a level. - When resizing the window the view is still being shown. - Added keyboard shortcuts for zooming. - Added menu item for visiting the GrandPerspective website. - The selection only follows the mouse when the view window has main status. - Now also setting hardlink and package status for root of scan tree. - Showing an alert when an invalid date value is encountered when loading scan data. - Alerts created by a view window are now all shown as sheets of that window. - Moved horizontal drawers away from the window's left edge. - The initial size of windows and the color gradient for drawing rectangles in the view are now taken from the user defaults. - Moved description of file type in Focus panel from separate text field to tooltip of the file type identifier. Bug fixes: - Included workaround for bug #2243134 (crash while scanning NTFS mounted filesystem). - Coloring by Level would end up in endless loop for packages at level zero when package contents were hidden. Not anymore. - Aborting a drawing task that was just about to complete could result in premature aborting of next task. Not anymore. - Closed Edit Mask windows would reappear when the application got activated again after reactivation. They now remain hidden. Code clean-up: - Renamed FileItem -isSpecial to -isPhysical (and inverted meaning) - Simplified abortion of background tasks (removed enabled state from TaskExecutor). - Moved zoom and focus functionality to DirectoryView. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.9.13.1 (localized), 01-10-2008 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Updated localizations: - Japanese, by Chris Li - Spanish, by Javier Alfonso - French, by Maxime Hadjinlian - Dutch, by Erwin Bonsma ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.9.13.1, 29-08-2008 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Bug fixes: - Fixed "silly typo" bug that caused crashes when scanning. - Failures of FSRefMakePath do not abort scanning anymore, but are handled gracefully instead. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.9.13, 26-08-2008 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- New functionality: - Scan data can now be saved to an XML file and loaded again at a later time. - Progress of ongoing scan, filter, save, and load tasks is now reported. Minor improvements: - All text fields in the view's drawer are now selectable. - Views are immediately cleared when they are resized. - Reduced the amount of memory needed when scanning and filtering. - The trees used to store scan results are now stored in a dedicated memory zone to minimise fragmentation and optimise memory usage. Bug fixes: - Plugged a big memory leak. The image was not released when the view was resized. This has been fixed. - The drawer of the Edit Filter window could be detached from its window. This cannot happen anymore. - Aborting a filter task would create a view anyway. Not anymore. - Now obtaining readlock on the tree before filtering. Code clean-up: - Replaced all remaining NSBrowsers by NSTableViews. - Moved TaskExecutor protocol from "util" folder to "task". - Placed ProgressPanelControl and its new subclasses into the "control/progress" subfolder. - Renamed various classes and methods. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.9.12.1, 14-06-2008 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Bug fix: - [1990250] Applying a Path test on folders in a filter could crash the application. This has been fixed. Minor improvements: - Extended help documentation to better explain how tests on folders function. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.9.12, 10-06-2008 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- New functionality: - Hard-linked files and folders are recognized and handled appropriately. - Mask and filter rules can now optionally be applied to folders. - Added Filtered Scan command, which lets you apply a filter while scanning. - Optionally showing package contents. - Added several new tests for mask and filter rules (on file type, package status, and hard link status) Minor improvements: - Improved application-default ranking of uniform types. - Added new application-provided tests (Packages and Hard-linked items) and updated existing ones. - Improved GUI of "Edit Filter Rule" window. - Made progress panel resizable. - Case-sensitivity of string tests is now reflected in their description. Bug fixes: - Files inside a package can now be revealed (unless the package is itself in a package). - Filtering produced corrupt trees (PlainFileItems were replaced by FileItems), which could trigger various exceptions. This has been fixed. - Fixed synchronisation in TreeContext. - AsynchronousTaskManager now unlocks its locks before releasing them. Code clean-up: - Introduced ItemPathModelView for managing view-specific selection path state. - Introduced FilteredTreeGuide for applying masks and filters. - FileItems are now duplicated using factory methods. - Refactored TreeBuilder. - Removed several warnings when compiling using XCode 3.0. - Renamed "filter" folder to "test". - Renamed various classes, methods and member variables. - Removed some unnecessary nesting. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.9.11 (localized), 22-04-2008 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Updated localizations: - Japanese, by Chris Li - Dutch, by Erwin Bonsma ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.9.11, 18-03-2008 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- New functionality: - Files and folders can now be deleted from the view window: - Deletion can be enabled and disabled from the Preferences, with optional required confirmation. - The view updates itself to show freed space. - The total amount of freed space is shown in the Info panel. - Added coloring by file type: - The hierarchical Uniform Type system of OS X is used as a basis. - A color legend in the Display panel shows the file type that corresponds to each color. - The types that are assigned a different color can be controlled in the Preferences by changing the order of the uniform types. - The list of new uniform types is dynamically extended as new types are encountered during scanning. Minor improvements: - Improved drawer of the view window: - The Focus panel now shows the file type of the selected item. - The width of the drawer can be increased. - Improved wrapping/scrolling of text fields in the Info panel. - Renamed "Depth" color mapping scheme to "Level". The newly added color legend shows the level that is associated with each color. Bug fixes: - Removed race condition in view redrawing code that could trigger a near endless cycle of view redrawings. - It was possible to show multiple preference panels at once. Not anymore. - Made it impossible to change the names of application-provided rules. Furthermore, now correctly showing the localized namee.

Removed several old palettes that had relatively few colors. - Made the path to the selected file more clearly visible in the view. - Improved drawing of the view so that it does not unnecessarily "flash" when it is updated. Minor meta changes: - Changed version numbering scheme to allow this release before releasing Version 1.00. (Just insert a dot in the version numbers of all earlier releases for the new numbering to make sense) Code clean-up: - Drastically refactored the code in order to cleanly add the new functionality. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.99 (localized), 28-03-2007 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Updated localizations: - Japanese, by Chris Li - German, by Helge Baumann - Dutch, by Erwin Bonsma ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.99, 24-02-2007 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- New functionality: - Added choice of file size measure. You can choose between logical file size (the default), and physical file size. - Added help. Hopefully rarely needed, but at least it exists. Changes to the release files: - The application has been released as a Universal Binary. - The source release has been extended, and now includes everything needed to build the application. Newly included: - The (cleaned up) project file. - The help documentation. - All Dutch resources (as an example for other localizers). Tiny changes: - Made titles of various panels and their default buttons more specific. - Moved all localizable names into new Names.strings file. - Moved all color palettes into "Palettes" subfolder. - Enlarged bounding box of text fields where there was room (to facilitate localization). Bug fixes: - Enabling a filename or path test without specifying any strings does not give an error anymore. - It was possible to specify a negative file size bound, which resulted in a very large size. Not any more. - It was possible (to attempt) to save an image with a dimension that was zero or negative. This resulted in an exception. Not anymore. - When a "void" test was returned after adding or editing a mask or filter rule an exception occurred. This has been fixed. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.98 (localized), 09-01-2007 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Updated localizations: - Japanese, by Chris Li - German, by Helge Baumann - Dutch, by Erwin Bonsma ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.98, 15-12-2006 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- New functionality: - Masking and filtering rules that are created (or modified) by the user are now stored in the user preferences so that they are available next time the application is run. - The default file item tests are now read from the information properties file, instead of being hardcoded in the application. - String tests support case-insensitive matching. - Now also showing human-friendly file sizes in the Info and Focus panels. - Added button for removing all tests from the filter in the "Edit Filter" window. Minor improvements: - The path test now applies to path of the folder where the file item resides (excluding the name of the file itself). This way it better complements the name test. - Path strings are cached during filtering or drawing of the file item tree for improved performance. - Changed size of main window to 640x480. - Internationalized the OK and Cancel buttons of alert panels. Bug fix: - When an image was saved, the "Clown Barf" palette was always used, irrespective of the palette used by the view. This has been fixed. - The CFBundleSignature, CFBundleIdentifier, and CFBundleVersion properties in Info.plist were not set correctly. This, for instance, meant that preferences were incorrectly associated with the example com.apple.myCocoaApp application. This has been fixed. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.97 (localized), 10-12-2006 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- New localizations: - Japanese, by Chris Li - German, by Helge Baumann - Dutch, by Erwin Bonsma ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.97, 14-11-2006 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- New functionality: - There is now a choice of color palettes. - The palettes that can be chosen have been taken from the ColorSchemer gallery at http://www.colorschemer.com/schemes/. Thanks to the following users for providing one or more color schemes: copperblue, tumuchtime, Jalle, Nemoflow, and rageforst. - Preferences can now be changed and stored. This means that you can change the default color mapping and default color palette. - The application has been fully internationalized. This means that localized versions can now be generated. - See LOCALIZATION.TXT for details on how you can help to make GrandPerspective available in your language. Minor improvements: - Zero-sized items are not included in the tree anymore. This reduces the memory footprint and stops tree paths from being drawn when the tree has a total size of zero. Code clean-up: - Renamed FileItemHashingOptions to FileItemHashingCollection and more generally made it match the new ColorListCollection class. Also renamed instances of FileItemHashing to colorMapping. Bug fixes: - Closing Filter Window would freeze application (see 1562627) - Selecting an empty filter would throw an assertion (see 1562627). - It used to be possible for a test that was not available to be selected anyway, which could cause various anomalous behaviours. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.96, 12-08-2006 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Changes since Version 0.95: - New functionality: - Added ability to filter a directory view window, which generates a new window with a "filtered view". The filter determines which files are shown in the new window. - If a filter has been applied this is reflected in the window title. - Added a drawer to directory view windows. It has three panels: - An "Info" panel with details about the files that are shown in the view, including: - the time of scan, - the folder that was scanned, and - details of the filter that has been applied (if any). - A "Display" panel for configuring the way the view is drawn. Here you can specify: - how files are colored, and - the mask that is used (if any). - A "Focus" panel with details about: - the folder that is currently shown in the view, and - the file that is currently selected. - Tiny changes: - The button for revealing a file in Finder has been renamed to "Reveal" (it used to be "Show"). - The file coloring options "directory" and "top directory" have been renamed to "folder" and "top folder" respectively. - Cosmetic changes to the "Edit Filter" window. - Code cleanup: - The progress panel has been refactored. It is now also used when filtering takes place. - All tasks and executors have been moved to a new "task" folder. - Simplified the code that creates the attributed string for the selected file. - The contents of PopUpButtons are now set in their nib file instead of programmatically. - Bug fix: - Plugged a memory leak in the image drawing code. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.95, 05-07-2006 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Changes since Version 0.94: - New functionality: - Added ability to mask files. When a file is masked it is not drawn, but still takes up space in the view. Masking files is handy for quickly spotting certain types of file. - A mask can be quickly enabled or disabled. - A test for masking can be created quickly by selecting one or more existing rules. - Existing rules can be edited and new ones can be created. - Rules can take the name of the file into account, its size, and its path. - Rules can be identified by their friendly name, but a full description can optionally also be shown. - Tiny changes: - Added coloring by "top directory" option as suggested by Adrian Sampson (ID 1501479). - Made color-mapping choice in directory view a pop-up button. - Added keyboard shortcuts for Re-scan and Filter commands. - The SaveImageDialog is now centered. - Code cleanup: - The code is now spread across various folders. - Made implementation of TreeLayoutTraverser protocol explicit. - Split BalancingTreeBuilder in two: TreeBuilder and TreeBalancer. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.94, 09-05-2006 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Changes since Version 0.93: - New functionality: - There is now a "rescan" command which generates an up-to-date window given an existing one. You can use this command after you have moved or deleted several files and folders. - Tiny changes: - Window titles now include the time of the scan and, if needed, an additional number, to make each title unique. - The scan progress panel now shows the name of the folder that is being scanned. - Renamed the "Open" button of the directory view window to "Show". - Renamed the "Scan directory..." command to "Scan Folder...". - Code clean up: - Generalised the execution of background threads in the new AsynchronousTaskManager class, which is now used for both drawing and rescanning in a background thread. - The scan progress panel has been moved into a nib of its own, and now has a dedicated control: ScanProgressPanelControl. - Bug fix: - Fixed the drawing code so that it also runs properly when compiled for Intel Macs. Many thanks to Craig Hughes for his help with this. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.93, 22-01-2006 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Changes since Version 0.92: - New functionality: - Selected files can now be opened in Finder. This can be used to examine files and folders in more detail, and to optionally remove, move or edit files. - An image of the directory view can now be generated and saved (as a TIFF image). - Code clean up: - Refactored ItemTreeDrawer into two classes. ItemTreeDrawer now does the basic drawing, and AsynchronousItemTreeDrawer manages drawing in a separate thread. - Bug fix: - The thread used for drawing in the background is now properly terminated and disposed of when it is not needed anymore. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.92, 10-01-2006 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Changes since Version 0.91: - New functionality: - Added a "twin window" command. This is like the "duplicate window" command, except that navigation of the directory tree in the new window is synchronized with its parent window. - Improved functionality: - When duplicating a window, the file colouring scheme and the path in the tree are now also copied. - Code clean up: - Refactored code so that it adheres much better to the MVC pattern. - Bug fixes: - Fixed bug that would occassionally prevent redrawing of the directory view. (ID 1309819) - Plugged a big memory leak. The directory tree is now actually freed when all windows that refer to it are closed. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.91, 30-09-2005 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Changes since Version 0.90: - Now building with ZeroLink disabled, so that the application should actually run on machines other than my own. :-) - Optimised view drawing. Drawing the tree map of my entire hard drive contents at 1280x1024 resolution on my Mac Mini now takes only half a second. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Version 0.90, 20-09-2005 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- First release of GrandPerspective. Features: - A view showing directory trees graphically: - Layout of files using a basic balanced tree building algorithm. - Drawing of files using basic gradient filling. - Support for different file colouring schemes. Colouring by: - Directory name (i.e. a hash of the name) - File name (i.e. a hash of the name) - File type (i.e. hash of file extension) - Nothing (all files same colour) - Selection of a file in the view: - To descend into the directory tree. - To enable copying of file path. - Support for multiple windows: - Scan different folder and show in new window. - Duplication of an existing window (to view data differently).
