Phil Harvey has released version 12.50 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, but version 12.50 is a stable release. Since version 12.48, the following changes and improvements have been made:
