If you don’t already use Hazel, I encourage you to do so. I even did a segment about it for The Lab with Leo Laporte. Hazel is a housekeeper for your folders and files. Using a powerful rule engine, you can easily keep your files automatically organized. Hazel also features options for managing your Trash.
Noodlesoft has announced the availability of Hazel 2 for Mac OS X. Hazel 2 brings a multitude of new features to allow users to easily create more powerful workflows to organize their files. Users can now create rules to rename files or sort them into subfolders based on any file attribute. With Hazel’s improved Spotlight integration, rules can filter on any metadata in the system. Hazel’s new App Sweep feature allows Hazel to watch for thrown away applications and give the user the option to throw away its support files. Hazel 2 also provides Growl support so users can receive notifications on their desktop. Other improvements include a new menu bar icon and a preview feature.
Hazel 2 is a free upgrade for existing registered users. Hazel 2 is available for download now and features a free trial. Hazel 2 has a retail price of USD$21.95.
