Previous release notes:
This update includes support for removing duplicate photos from the new Photos app libraries.
We are happy to report that Duplicate Detective has now surpassed over 400,000 users, making it the most popular app of its kind! Thank you for your continued support.
Note: As there is no official API for removing images from the new Photos app, the deletion process has more steps involved compared with the older iPhoto libraries. Developers are requesting Apple to add an API so that apps can totally automate the duplicates removal process from the new Photos app libraries.
