Default Folder X 5.0.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 5.0.2 [1], a maintenance update that’s flush with improvements and bug fixes for the Open/Save dialog enhancement utility. The update detects that a file dialog has closed even if an application performs a long operation afterwards, turns on Rebound (reselecting the last selected file in a folder) by default in column view, displays a preview of the first item when multiple items are selected rather than turning off previews, fixes problems with Default Folder X not enhancing some file dialogs, adds an extra settings preference dialog that “allows you to fiddle with various details” (press Option when choosing Preferences to see it), and updates Sparkle to version 1.13 (though St. Clair Software says that Default Folder X wasn’t susceptible to the recently reported security issue; see “Sparkle Vulnerability Real, but Exploits Highly Unlikely [2],” 15 February 2016). ($34.95 new, $14.95 upgrade, TidBITS members save $10 on new copies and $5 on upgrades, 7.9 MB, release notes [3], 10.10+)
