FinderPop 2.2.6 BETA (tagged "Ghosts On Water") is now available
(2.2.6 is the same as 2.2.5 with updated localisations.)
- No longer Thrillseekers Only! Still a beta, though - until a few days have gone by so we weed out the last few bugs. Should be relatively stable. Contact me soonest if not!
- Works on PPC 10.4 and 10.5, as well as Intel 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6.
- If no problems appear in the next few days, I'll re-release it as a non-beta and announce it to MacUpdate, VersionTracker et al.
From the previous semi-public release FinderPop 2.2.4b8 THRILLSEEKER BETA (tagged "Fruit flies like a banana")
- Fix a crash with PathFinder.
- Control-free popups in 10.6 Finder
- No longer Snow-Leopard-specific
- Fix problem that showed up with some QuickKeys macros
- Play nicer with FolderGlance
* Adds a goofy scripting facility to run scripts or programs before generating the FinderPop menu, allowing these scripts to add or remove items from the FinderPop Items folder (or indeed any folder.) Basically any file whose name ends in ".fpsh" in the FinderPop Items folder (or one level below it, ie in a folder inside the FinderPop Items folder) will be run before and after FinderPop runs; the Finder selection is passed to the script, the script can examine the selection and add or remove items to the FinderPop Items folder which will then appear (or not) in the FinderPop popup menus. I'll explain this in more detail in another post as it's not likely to be useful to any but a handful of people... but it could be used to reintroduce a measure of contextuality. I was looking at supporting old CM plugins but there are numerous problems with 64/32bitness.)What remains to be done:
* Contextual Menu Support in apps other than the Finder on Snow Leopard
* FinderPop info help tag windows on Cocoa apps in Snow Leopard
If you're installing this over a previous beta, you'll have to restart or logout for it to take effect.
