FinderPop BETA

Postby turly » 12 Jul 2011, 20:12

FinderPop Beta (imaginatively tagged "Lion Salient") is now available.

  • MacOS X 10.7 Lion compatibility
    FinderPop now requires authorisation when installing on 10.6 or 10.7 - it installs the Scripting Addition (osax) into
    /Library/ScriptingAdditions instead of in your home directory's ~/Library/ScriptingAdditions
  • Control-free popup now works more reliably in the 10.7 Finder, as does clicking in "List View" windows

    Note that there may still be a couple of minor quirks with FinderPop in the Lion Finder - I'll get around to fixing them once Lion is officially released.

    Previous fixes:
    • Basic Lion compatability - FinderPop now requires authorisation when installing on 10.6 or 10.7 - it installs the Scripting Addition (osax) into /Library/ScriptingAdditions instead of in your home directory.
    • Updated localisations for the new "Aliases in Italics" checkbox - thanks to all the localisers!
    • New click-in-unused-menubar code for 10.6 and 10.7 ("Lion") - thanks to Rene for testing this
    • When "Use custom icons" is turned off, apps now appear with a generic application icon rather than as a folder (err, whoops)
    • Bump maximum number of Recent Items to 16 (this was already the max, I just added 13, 14, 15 and 16 to the popup menus)
    • Labels and Cmd+Option "Info Window" on Snow Leopard Finder, incomplete but it's a start.
    • Fixed a number of longstanding alias bugs
    • Italicised Aliases now possible via checkbox in Appearance pane
    • Labels displayed for aliases use the alias's label, not the target's.
    • Some 10.7 "Lion" compatibility (thanks, Rene)
    • Folders with .fp-ignore files inside are ignored (I just installed Office 2011 and wanted FinderPop to completely ignore my previous Office 2008 install.)
    • Fix 64-bit Cocoa "unused menubar" check - no longer causes a crash in Photoshop if you choose 'Invert Selection' (thanks to Dave for the prod - I wasn't restoring the OpenGL context properly!)
    • Fix 64-bit Cocoa "unused menubar" check so it obeys the "must-be-control-click-in-menubar" setting
    • Ignore .plugin files when creating "All Apps" submenu (for items ending in '---a'.)
    • Add 'quit' AppleEvent handler to finderpop-daemon. A forum user was having problems with FinderPop apparently causing a hang on shutdown/restart/logout. This may help matters.
    • Fix a Snow Leopard bug spotted by cowicide where clicking-and-holding on an alias didn't pop up a Contents menu when it should have.
    • Fix a bug where ctrl-clicking on an alias A to a folder B would mistakenly allow you to move/copy/alias A into B's children.
    • Improved German localisation - thanks Hajo Bass who sent me the improvements back in August and I'm only incorporating them now - sorry!
    • More complete Italian localisation - thanks Mauro Ferreri and Nello Martuscelli

What remains to be done:

* Contextual Menu Support in apps other than the Finder on Snow Leopard

If you're installing this over a previous beta, you'll have to restart or logout for it to take effect.

As usual, if there are any issues with this, reply here in the forum!
