Localized versions of Default Folder X

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

All of the localized versions of Default Folder X are now available. I’d like to express my thanks to these folks who have invested a great deal of time and care in creating and continually updating versions of DFX in their native languages:

It’s great to have them on the St. Clair Software team. If you use a localized version of DFX, drop the appropriate person an email and let him know how much you appreciate his efforts!

Default Folder 4.0.2 Released

Saturday, February 23rd, 2008

Well, there were some remaining “gotchas” in 4.0.1 that I’ve ironed out in 4.0.2.  Most important were the troubles that Default Folder X was having with Open and Save sheets in Carbon applications when the app’s windows contained a toolbar.  These problems are now fixed, as are a couple of smaller issues.

You can grab a copy of version 4.0.2 and/or read the change log here:

As always, thanks to everyone who reported the problems they found and helped test the fixes!

MacFixit Marks Default Folder’s 20th Anniversary

Saturday, February 16th, 2008

Ted Landau at MacFixit has posted a column celebrating Default Folder’s 20th anniversary.  Ted’s a long-time Default Folder fan and one of the most knowledgeable guys around when it comes to troubleshooting Macs.  It was a real honor to get to sit down with him for a virtual interview :-)  And embarrassingly, I hadn’t actually realized that this year marks Default Folder’s 20th anniversary until Ted actually asked me when the first version shipped.  We’ve gotta plan a party and a big sale or something!

Default Folder X 4.0.1 is out!

Monday, February 11th, 2008

I just posted Default Folder X version 4.0.1. Thanks to everyone that provided feedback on the functionality and the UI, tested various fixes for me, and helped sort out a few of the truly funky circumstances surrounding a couple of issues.

I’m very happy with the user interface at this point – the “old style” sidebar turned out very well (thanks for the push Warren)!  The preview generator is nice and fast, even under Tiger, and performance and reliability are solid on all machines, not just on the hopped up hardware here in the office and in the original beta group :-)

You can read the change log and download the new version on this page:
