Fetch 3.0.1b1 -- In TidBITS-307 we mentioned that Fetch 3.0 has problems on 68000-based Macs (the Plus, SE, Classic, and PowerBook 100) and truncates some files uploaded on machines running Open Transport. Jim Matthews has released version 3.0.1b1 of Fetch, which addresses these problems, plus includes a setting to bypass Fetch's Open Transport code (using MacTCP code instead) in the event other problems appear with Open Transport. If you experienced problems with Fetch 3.0, check out this release. [GD]
Opening a Folder from the Dock
Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.
