Parsnips enables you to drag and drop text from various locations -- including Web pages, files, e-mails and instant messaging sessions -- to the application, where you can give it a title, an associated URL and keywords. Later, you can use Parsnips' search engine to find items based on keywords, specific words or Boolean combinations of them, or a range of dates.
Version 1.5 improves the HTML parser that is used for extracting text from Web pages.
What is new in this release:
Improved the HTML parser that is used for extracting text from
style sheet information in the text. Also improved error handling
so you don't get extraneous ">" characters in the text.
Implemented Services on Mac OS X. You can now use the
Services menu in another application to send the application's
selection to Parsnips.
Added "Tip Windows" that are shown before executing certain
non-obvious commands. These tips explain a bit about what the
command does. Each tip window had a checkbox to prevent it from
being shown again.
Better "Quick Start" information is now displayed in the Results
Pane when there are no items in the database.
New preference for setting the main window's background
color. By default Parsnips now has a non-standard background
coloe. You can turn this off in the Preferences.
In previous versions, if you had an item you were editing then
and did an operation that diplayed a new item, you would be shown a
dialog with choices to Cancel or Discard Changes. in the new
version you are also given the option of saving the changes before
In previous versions, many operations such as saving or deleting
an item would revert you to showing all items. Now we try to keep
the current search parameters and just upate the changed item.
You can now Command-click a file:// URL in the text of the
Display Pane to have it opened by the application that natively handles
that file type. Previously his only worked for http:// based URLs.
When requesting web pages, the user-agent is now set to
Changed the wording and button order in the License dialog to be
If you had an unsaved change to an item and then clicked a
different item (or did a search), you are to there are unsaved
changes. If you cancel and then save the changes, you will get
two copies of the item, one before the save and one afterwards.
This bug has been fixed.
Fixed problem where non-html files referenced via HTTP always had
the "text" extracted from them even if they were binary files.
Eliminated some screen flashing that occured when paging up and
down through the results list.
When running under Mac OS X 10.2.x, fixed a problem where a
"phantom window" was shown when the main windows was closed.
When running under Mac OS X 10.2.x, we no longer use a "Brushed
Metal" main window type.
