What's New in Version 3.0

- The application and its user interface have been revised completely. Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 or later is now needed for operation.
- Due to changes in the architecture of the preferences subsystem of OS X, the differentiation between access to user defaults (preferences) and access to property list files had to be given up.
- Accessing preference settings of applications protected by the OS X application sandbox is now fully supported.
- Support for work without Save and the feature “Versions” has been added.
- The application can now process external modifications to preference domains or property lists live.
- Property list files can now be edited either in sorted form or by keeping the internal order of their XML representation.
- It is now possible to sort preferences or data items of type dictionary by alphabetical order of their keys.
- Copy / Paste is now supported in unlimited fashion for all components of property lists or preference settings.
- Drag and Drop is now supported in unlimited fashion within files or between different files.
- The application now explicitly differentiates between values of type integer number and real number.
- Search operations for keys and values in the entire preferences database have been accelerated significantly.
- The view on the preferences search path and on the different scope of user defaults has been changed. The correlations to the files' storage locations are now emphasized more strongly. Overridden, ineffective settings in the search path are no longer visualized for easier understanding.
- The license agreement for the App edition of PrefEdit has changed: For private, non-commercial users, the site license (use by an unlimited number of persons at a site) has been replaced by a single-user-multi-machine license (use by a single person on all her own computers). There are no changes for non-private users.
