FinderPop BETA
FinderPop Beta (tagged "equilux") is now available.

  • 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 (may not be properly localised into all languages yet!)
  • 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.)

    Previous fixes:
    • 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!

Re: FinderPop BETA
Small cosmetic issue: The color lables are not properly aligned, the labels appear positioned (just one pixel?) too high. As you may remember, the problem existed (and was solved) long time ago in earlier FP versions.
(Snow Leopard on 64-bit capable Intel machine.)

Re: FinderPop BETA
There are plenty of cosmetic issues, I'll have to seriously re-think how I'm doing the labels on Snow Leopard. But like I said, it's a start...
