3rd version of Project Manager gains a lot of new features to manage 3D Assets. 
There is most unique from them – the ability to assign custom previews to materials, associate files with materials, and create a gallery of files associated with any type of assets including materials. 
You can also write a description for material and, of course, assign categories to materials.

A simple script that can be used to merge individual .mat files (material libraries) into one big file. Pretty lame interface, but it gets the job done. Feel free to modify as needed.

Quick load Material Libraries to the Material Editor.
Quick code just from scratch as well.
Generally useful for all people that found 24 ME slots for not enough.
