Dupin Lite v1.1 Up at the Mac App Store

Dupin's little brother, Dupin Lite, has been updated to v1.1 and is available exclusively at the Mac App Store. Dupin Lite has the core features of Dupin--Get Dupes, Filter, and Purge--but fewer accessory features. This latest version of Dupin Lite has a faster interface and makes general performance fixes.

Dupin Updated to v2.3.1

Dupin v2.3.1 fixes a couple of bugs when running under Lion. Additionally, an issue with using Consolidate History on a selection has been resolved. Many thanks to the Correspondents who were quick to report these issues over the weekend.

Dupin 2.3 is Lion-ready

Dupin v2.3 is now available. Dupin is the iTunes duplicates manager, and allows you to find duplicate tracks, filter tracks to keep, and purge the tracks you don't want to keep. Using Dupin you can:

  • Very quickly find all sets of duplicate iTunes tracks based on your choice of criteria
  • Select the "Keeper" tracks from among a number of duplicates automatically using a variety of versatile filtering options
  • Consolidate the play, skip, and ratings information from all tracks in a Dupe Group to the single "Keeper" track
  • Re-populate iTunes playlists replacing "non-Keeper" tracks with "Keeper" tracks
  • Remove duplicate tracks from iTunes and send files to the Trash
  • Manage intentionally duplicated tracks
  • Copy tracks to new iTunes playlists
  • View duplicates in non-loaded libraries created with iTunes' multiple library feature
  • View duplicates in iTunes libraries on other machines on your local network
  • Sort tracks and view track info
  • Export a list of duplicates to a text file
  • Locate tracks in the Finder and in iTunes
  • Audition tracks

New in Dupin v2.3:

  • Compatible with OS X Lion
  • Fixed issue with delays caused by slow screen redrawing. Most operations will be noticably more responsive.
  • Most operations can now be performed on discrete Search results (eg, Filter just the Search results).
  • No longer necessary to confirm changes when closing Selection Window as these changes now happen "live".
  • Minor enhancements to improve overall performance.

This version is a free upgrade for registered users of v2.x.

Dupin v2.2.5 Released

I released Dupin v2.2.5 last night. This update improves Dupe Group parsing when "fuzzy" Time criteria is in effect and corrects an unusual playlist sorting issue when two or more same-named regular playlists share the same name as two or more Smart playlists. This is a free update for registered users of Dupin v2.x.

Dupin Lite now on the Mac App Store

I've been very happy with the success of Dupin, the iTunes duplicates manager. In fact it was just recommended again in a recent Macworld column.

Well now I'm pleased to announce that Dupin Lite, a brand new lite-sized version of Dupin, is available exclusively on the Mac App Store. Dupin Lite has the same core functions as Dupin but with fewer power-user features. And a lighter price. Dupin Lite is just $7.99 in the Mac App Store.

Of course, Dupin is still available when you need to do some heavy lifting (re-playlist, consolidate history, library profiling, etc). But for a not-so-heavy price of $7.99 you can start cleaning up your iTunes library by removing duplicate tracks with Dupin Lite.

Dupin v2.2 Available

I've just released Dupin v2.2.

Dupin is your iTunes duplicates manager.

Dupin finds sets of duplicate tracks in iTunes based on the criteria you choose. It can then automatically select the "Keeper" tracks from among the duplicates using a variety of versatile filter options. Dupin is flexible, fast, and easy to use.

With Dupin you can:

  • Locate, sort, filter, and purge duplicate tracks
  • Preserve play history and ratings
  • Re-populate iTunes playlists
  • Manage intentionally duplicated tracks
  • Copy tracks to new iTunes playlists
  • Audition tracks
  • ...and much more

New in version 2.2:

  • Added preference to set small/large text-size
  • Text color of track rows designated as non-Keepers will be displayed lighter than text of Keeper track rows
  • Some of the GUI now rendered with WebKit
  • Updated playlist and library icons to iTunes 10 monochrome-look
  • Fixed a bug that might prevent Filter Controls window from staying frontmost (when preferred)
  • Fixed an issue that might cause the Time column to mis-sort very short tracks
  • Fixed an issue that prevented newly added toolbar icons from becoming enabled right away

This is a free update for registered users of v2.x. For more information visit the Dupin product page.

Dave Taylor on Dupin

Dave Taylor is one of my favorite coding guys; he's got the know-how on everything from HTML to UNIX. So I was pretty bowled over to see Dave's take on Dupin v2.1 in a post on de-dupin' iTunes. Many thanks!

Dupin v2.0.4 Released

Just posted Dupin v2.0.4. This update fixes a problem with "Selection to iTunes Playlist" and a couple of other minor issues.

On another Dupin note: most likely this will be the last incarnation for Tiger/10.4 systems. The next revision, v2.1, and its descendants will be for Leopard and Snow Leopard only. However, v2.0.x will remain available and I will continue to upgrade v2.0.x for Tiger if future circumstances justify it.
