Phil Harvey has released version 12.45 of ExifTool. ExifTool is a free and cross-platform program that allows the metadata of a large number of files can be managed and edited. It works from the command line, but third-party solutions are available that allow it to be used with a graphical user interface as well. New versions appear regularly, but most releases are made available under the beta flag. This update is also referred to as a development version; the latest stable release is version 12.42. Since version 12.42 the following changes and improvements have been made:

Changes in version 12.45:

  • Added new IPTC Video Metadata version 1.3 tags
  • Added a couple of new Canon lenses
  • Added a new Sony Lens Type
  • Added known Unknown value for IPTC ChromaticityColorant
  • Added new Nikon WhiteBalanceFineTune tag
  • Extract the raw thermal data from all frames of a SEQ file when -ee2 is used
  • Decode individual tags in QuickTime ColorRepresentation
  • Decode a new Matroska tag
  • Improved verbose “nothing changed” messages when writing

  • Patched to avoid “Use of uninitialized value” warning when deleting GPS coordinates via the newly writable Composite tags

  • Patched to avoid “fixing” the order of IFD entries in TIFF-based RAW files to improve compatibility with some RAW viewers
  • Minor change to Composite FileNumber to remove “-” when -n is used
  • Fixed problem extracting some timed metadata when “-api ignoretags=all” was used with “-api requesttags” to request the specific information
