Default Folder X 5.1.2

St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 5.1.2 to correct several bugs in the Open/Save dialog enhancement utility. The update fixes a bug that could cause the app to use more memory than it should, eliminates a crash that occurred when performing an operation (Duplicate, Move, Copy, etc.) on a broken alias, and turns off HockeyApp metrics reporting. ($34.95 new, $14.95 upgrade from version 4, TidBITS members save $10 on new copies and $5 on upgrades, 8.2 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
