Quicksilver β69

Send Article to a Friend

The open-source keyboard launcher Quicksilver has been updated to version β69, a maintenance update with a plethora of fixes that also adds support for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. The release now enables Quicksilver’s “paste” action and internal shortcuts to work for all keyboard layouts, makes Automator actions universal, and fixes sporadic opening and closing of the Quick Look panel. It also allows the app’s preferences to be localized and adds French localization. (Free, 3.3 MB, release notes)
