Hazel is your personal housekeeper, organizing and cleaning folders based on rules you define. Hazel can also manage your trash and uninstall applications. Organize your files using a familiar rule interface. Filter on the file's name, type, date, the site or email address it came from and more. And do more than just file. You can set color labels, Spotlight keywords and comments and even archive files. Hazel also cleans, sporting options to clean out incomplete and duplicate downloads. In addition, Hazel can manage your Trash for you, relieving you of having to empty it yourself. All this is done automatically in the background allowing you to focus on your real work.

What is new in this release:

  • Fixed crash that could happen while editing a pattern.
  • Fixed various issues with dragging attributes/tokens into patterns.

What is new in version 3.3.8:

  • New installer. Previously, Hazel was provided as a pref pane file that when double-clicked would launch System Preferences to install it. Unfortunately, Apple broke Gatekeeper in 10.11.4 where it (incorrectly) rejects any non-app software even when properly signed. Since the installer (being an app) is allowed by Gatekeeper, it will hand off the pref pane to System Preferences to continue the installation.

  • Fixed file events being filtered out in cases where a nested condition used a "sub-file..." target and the file event was in a subfolder. This resulted in the rule not being triggered properly.

  • Various VoiceOver fixes.

  • Text replacements no longer operate on text already replaced, for reals this time.
  • Various internal fixes.

  • Hazel can now import into the new Photos app. Just use the "Import into Photos" action to import pictures into the album of your choice.

  • Fixed menubar icons sometimes not displaying correctly.
  • Sort into subfolder action now properly handles sorting a file into a subfolder with the exact same name.
  • Now does extra checks for text files so that content matching now works for a wider range of text file types, in particular those without a known type.
  • Fixed Upload action not working for accounts that are full email addresses.
  • Now supplies date added for filesystems that do not support it.
  • Fixed issues with passing of attribute output from one script into another script.
  • Fixed Hazel not properly restarting after an update in some cases. May not take effect until next update.
  • Fixed case when a duplicate exists at the destination, throwing the file away as directed was being interpreted as an error.

  • Fixed the throw away duplicates option for certain actions not working.
  • Some rule engine fixes.
  • Internal fixes.
