FinderPop 2.5.5
FinderPop 2.5.5 (still tagged "Unsinkable") is now available.

Removed the BETA designation, I think 2.5.5 is good to go...

Ensure that the System Preferences panel is CLOSED. Quit. Not running. Double-click the FinderPop.prefpane icon. System Preferences will
open and ask if you want to install FinderPop for all users or just you. Choose "All Users" and continue.
On 10.6+, FinderPop "sees" what it was you clicked on in the Finder via the Services subsystem - ensure that you have Folder Actions Setup
enabled: System Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services > Files & Folders > (ensure Folder Actions Setup is checked.)

  • 2.5.5 treats folders with known extensions as bundles (see original request here.) This means that (for example) .rtfd documents created by TextEdit will appear in FinderPop menus as documents, not directories (which is what they really are under the hood.)
    Note that you can still look "inside" the bundle by pressing SHIFT if FinderPop prefPane > Options > "Press Shift to get submenus on Bundles/Packages" is enabled.
    And you can disable this feature-ette completely via
    defaults write com.finderpop.finderpop dotExtensionDirsAreBundles false

The previous beta version of FinderPop is available here (2.5.4).

If you're installing this over a previous version of FinderPop, you'll have to restart or logout/login for it to take effect.

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