The open-source launcher Quicksilver β59 has been released, adding numerous features and plug-ins, and fixing plenty of bugs as well. Improvements include auto-updating, a new menu bar icon, an Open URL in Background action, performance improvements, and changes that will enable Quicksilver to be a 64-bit application in the future. But much of Quicksilver’s power lies in its many plug-ins, which enable it to integrate with other applications. This new version includes new plug-ins for Yojimbo, 1Password, and Cyberduck, along with fixes and changes to a number of others. Numerous bugs have also been fixed, although reports on the Quicksilver Google Group indicate there are still issues. (Free, 1.8 MB)
