Hazel 3.0.13

Send Article to a Friend

Noodlesoft has updated its Hazel file cleanup utility to version 3.0.13, which adds “IgnoreGrowl” as a hidden default that can be entered at the command line to shift notifications to Notification Center. The release also resolves a problem with custom tokens getting renamed over and over after dragging one within the same pattern, ensures that the “Run rules on folder contents” command crosses over into attached disks, and fixes a crash when using the “other” attribute in the Sort into Subfolder pattern. ($25 new, free update, 6.2 MB, release notes)
