Quicksilver β71

The open-source keyboard launcher Quicksilver has been updated to version β71 with a multitude of improvements and fixes as well as cosmetic changes — including new icons and a modernized look for the Bezel interface. At the top of the list, OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion’s Notification Center has been added as a notification handler and iCloud documents are displayed after right-arrowing into an iCloud-compatible application. The update also improves several aspects of its alternate action behavior, including adding the capability to hold the Command key down to select available alternate actions; enabling alternate actions to be viewed in the Actions preferences; and adding new alternate actions for moving, copying, opening files with a specified app, running at a specified time, and creating a link. Also new are localizations for Czech, French, German, Spanish, Welsh, and Chinese (Taiwan). (Free, 3.6 MB, release notes)
