- Changes to Exif Write function: fixed bug when more than 59 photos were having capture time repaired with "Increment Seconds" enabled.

- added tagset support for radial gradient metadata recently added to dev-meta plugin.

Version 5.7 Released 2014-09-04

Version 5.6 Released 2014-01-15

- Added feature to customize names and value formats.
- Added preset 'Nikon 51-pt Auto-focus' to take advantage of (and provide example for) custom value formatting (D600 & D90 users can easily customize by example, dunno how easy for cameras from other manufacturers).

Version 3.8.3 Released 2011-09-20
---------------------------------------

If you have problem with it, download and install exiftool v8.63 (which is what's in the previous version of exif-meta (3.8.1) at the moment) and use it instead (point to the executable in plugin manager by clicking the 'Browse' button).

Version 3.8.2 Released 2011-09-17
---------------------------------------
- Broke update into 1000 photo chunks to help with the potential problem that a whole catalog update would not make it to the end, generally due to memory shortage. Thanks to Axel for bringing this to my attention.
- Updated to latest exiftool (8.64).
- Added check for missing photo, so a stat is logged instead of an error.
- Also made a change to pause background task while doing manual update.


Version 3.8.1 Released 2011-09-08

Version 3.8 Released 2011-09-06
---------------------------------------
- Added tagset support for my new NxToo plugin. If you don't use NxToo, you can skip this release...

---------------------------------------
- Fixed bug: configuration of custom exiftool using advanced settings was broken. - thanks to Jim for pointing this out  Smiley

Version 3.7.4 Released 2011-08-26
---------------------------------------
- Reworked the plugin update function (plugin manager -> 'Update Plugin' button), so that future updates will never lose preferences nor require re-commital / reload after updating.

Version 3.7.3 Released 2011-08-24
---------------------------------------
- Fixed bug: error could occur if "big-block" enabled and update attempted without reloading plugin (Windows) or restarting Lightroom (Mac).

Version 3.7.2 Released 2011-08-24
---------------------------------------
- Fixed bug in ui, error message was: "comparing string with number".

Version 3.4.4 Released 2011-07-25
------------------------------------
- Better error message for "LrShell can't open ... in default app." - When this error happens, its usually because you don't have an app
  registered for .lua files. Have them be opened in a text editor, and you should be fine...

Version 3.4.3 Released 2011-07-16
------------------------------------
- Fixed 'RC Standard' tagset so date-time-original is always displayed.

Version 3.4.2 Released 2011-07-07
------------------------------------
- Made exifmeta fields read-only to avoid the misconception that they are editable/writable.

Version 3.4.1 Released 2011-07-06
------------------------------------
- Fixed typo in config files (in Preferences folder) that resulted in 'Software' metadata item not being displayed as part of the 'RC Standard' tagset.

Version 3.4 Released 2011-06-25
------------------------------------
- Enhanced so that if you delete the 'ExifMeta Updated' date/time-stamp, the photo will be re-updated.
  (this allows force updating on a per-photo basis, without having to return to the plugin manager and re-commit).

Version 3.3.1 Released 2011-06-24
------------------------------------
- Updated exiftool to latest (v8.59). Fixes potential bug in handling D700, maybe other models (not D300).
  (affects windows version only - Mac users may want to download a new version of exiftool too).

Version 3.3.0 Released 2011-05-25
------------------------------------
- Added tagset support for DevMeta's new fields: crop-width & crop-height.

Version 3.2.1 Released 2011-04-14

------------------------------------
- Added tagset support for DevMeta's new fields: Pixel Count & Aspect Ratio

Version 3.0.1 Released 2011-02-27
------------------------------------
- Fixed an error handling bug - errors were not being caught properly.

Version 3.0 Released 2011-02-24
----------------------------------
- Re-cast to rely on the Elare Plugin Framework.
- Primary motivation for new version: enhance usability - you dont have to reload as often and its much easier to define metadata to include.
- Will not convert your metadata definitions from earlier versions, but its easy enough to redo.

Versions 1 - 2.2.1  Released 2010-08-02 - 2011-01-23 respectively
---------------------------------------------------------------------
- Various incarnations - no longer documented.
