Summary0002070: Exiftool web address change
DescriptionI'm assuming you use the "ver.txt" file at http://owl.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ver.txt to check for updates to exiftool. Exiftool has now moved to exiftool.org and the "ver.txt" file is located https://exiftool.org/ver.txt

Phil will be retiring soon and the queensu.ca address will no longer work around April 2020.

I assume this is why Geosetter will no longer update Exif tool?

I can confirm that the lookup of new exiftool versions does not work because the website changed name. Is there a config file where I could update the name of the server. What works is to click on the exiftool website link. This is automatically forwarded to the correct site. And there you can manually download the new version and copy it into the folder specified in the update dialog.

Great Program! But the world keeps on moving.....

is it possible to patch the new path myself or is the link hard coded?

I was browsing through the geosetter exe file. I found three plases where the old wrong address is hardcoded in version 3.5.3

https://owl.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/rss.xml
Location: 6361408 Decimal
new equivalent string:
https://exiftool.org/rss.xml

http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/
Location: 11072990 Decimal
new equivalent string:
https://exiftool.org/

http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/
Location: 11178182 Decimal
new equivalent string:
https://exiftool.org/

It would be really nice if you could publish an updated 3.5.3 wit just these three strings replaced.

Thank you very much
