A bug has been identified in IMatch 2020.9.2 which prevents the Map Panel from updating under certain conditions.
This has been resolved in the re-release 2020.9.4 - just a few hours to ship a new version - that's what I call service  ;)


This version ships with ExifTool 12.06 which introduces some changes in tag names in the Composite group.
This may affect you, if you have used Composite tags in variables, File Window layouts etc.

To make this easy for you, I have written a dedicated help topic which explains the tag name changes and which things you must check. Nothing complicated, just maybe reloading a File Window layout or updating the File Window Info tip.

IMatch 2020.9 Upgrade Information

I did most of the work for you by updating the standard File Window layouts, File Window Info tip, metadata shortcodes for variables etc.
Tip: When working with variables, use Metadata Tag ShortCodes wherever possible. This shields you from changes to the corresponding tag names (because I can update these in a central place).
