Peakto v1.3 is out 🚀

hello all!

We are happy to announce  the latest release of Peakto: v1.3. We put a lot of work and ❤️ into making this a great release from many points of view

It is available from inside the app, using the Peakto > Check for Updates... menu

In this release we focused on  UI, AI and performances inside the app:
- we significantly improved the workflows inside the UI through a clearer separation of search/filter/navigation panels.
- we significantly improved performance while using the app on large volumes
- we added new AI capabilities while also improving the display of scores and color harmonies.
- we improved some more ingestion for all catalog types, and solved several issues with Capture One.


The detailed list of changes is given below:

  • [NEW] : UI. We have completely reorganized the UI to make it easier and logical:
  • there is a new filter button next to the search field that controls the showing and hiding of the filter bar.
