Bare Bones Software has updated Super Get Info, a file and folder info utility for Mac OS X, to version 1.0.4.

Super Get Info is an alternative to the "Show Info" command in the Mac OS X Finder. With version 1.0.4, Super Get Info can now be invoked from within the Mac OS X Finder by means of a keyboard shortcut (Command-Shift-I). Also new in Super Get Info 1.0.4 is the ability to change type and creator codes via drag and drop, along with assorted bug fixes and interface refinements. The most recent releases of BBEdit and DragThing feature integrated support for Super Get Info, according to Rich Siegel, the founder, president and CEO of BareBones Software.

Super Get Info lets you open a separate information window for each selected Finder item, so that multiple selected items can be viewed and edited. It also allows you to view and edit the Mac OS type and creator codes for a given file; view and edit the Unix owner, group, and permission settings for any file or folder; and change a file's creation and modification dates.

Super Get Info costs US$20 to purchase. A fully functional demo version that expires after 14 days is also available. Super Get Info requires Mac OS X 10.0 or later (10.1 is "strongly recommended"), and won't run on any earlier version of the Mac operating system.
