‣ Support for OS X Lion and Mountain Lion fullscreen mode has been added.
‣ RIF runs in a security sandbox on OS X Lion and Mountain Lion.
‣ Numerous minor cosmetic improvements have been made to the user interface.
‣ Minor improvements have been made to the online help.
‣ The redundant Notifications tab has been removed from the Preferences window.
‣ The navigate-to-next-match down-arrow button is now disabled when last match is selected and that match has a warning.
‣ When the last line is selected and then removed, the first remaining match is now automatically selected.
‣ When using Lion’s resume feature, a restored application window with files and/or folders in the search pane will now search those items when a search is started.
‣ The minus button is now disabled when there are no folders or files listed in the table of files and folders to search.
‣ Due to limitations with the OS X security sandbox, backups are no longer made when modifying files added individually to the ‘Choose files and folders to search’ table. Backups continue to be made (if the appropriate preference is enabled) when modifying files found under folders added to the ‘Choose files and folders to search’ table.

Used on a few times - First of all, I've used Araxis merge for over 10 years. I can't imagine doing development without it. It integrate nicely with GIT and SVN clients and does an excellent job helping to tease out difference in folders or files. I love the three-way merge. When I started doing iOS development I came across Araxis Replace in Files. Like Merge it's a well-polished tool that makes major updates to source code MUCH easier than trying to do it via Xcode. Strongly recommended.
Would be better if had an exclude option - I like the design of this app. It would be better if you could exclude files from certain directories, e.g. I want to filter out anything that is in a ".git", "node_modules", or "target" folder but see everything else.
Does One Trick Well, (and Probably More) - I use ARIF to change the font attributes in CSS files created by Adobe Muse so that the proper fonts will show on PCs and mobile devices. It retains the last settings, so I never have to retype. I just make two clicks and it fixes 30 pages in about two seconds. I am sure it can do more, but it does exactly what I need easily.
GREAT App. Exactly What I Needed - I have been a user and super fan of Araxis Merge for some time now, so picking this up was a no brainer. It turned a massive renaming task into child's play. The only thing I wish it did (read: feature enhancement request) is to either provide the ability to setup a default text editor or use MIME relationships to pop a selected file open in search results. Even better would be for it to go directly to the text line containing the search term that it found. There are times when a straight replace is n't quite what is needed, and doing the "Reveal In Finder" to get to a file is an extra step. A minor quibble though. Still a great app.
Best ever! - I tried a couple of other string replace apps (even one with a money back guarantee) and this one is the best! It works perfectly and is easy to use. I used it to remove unwanted configuration lines from Cisco IOS files.
