C-Command Software has updated EagleFiler, its document- and data-archiving app, to version 1.5.4 (see “EagleFiler Turns a Finder Folder Into a Snippet Keeper,” 24 February 2010). According to the release notes, EagleFiler 1.5.4 includes a slew of optimizations and bug fixes, in addition to a few new features. The app can now read data in a more efficient way from several RSS readers, including NewsRack and NetNewsWire, and can import bookmarks from a variety of sources, like Safari, Delicious, Pinboard, and others. EagleFiler 1.5.4 also includes early support for the upcoming Mac OS X Lion, where the app can run in full-screen mode. ($39.99 new from C-Command’s Web site or the Mac App Store, free update, 11.4 MB)
