Action Files 1.5 Works with Navigation Services -- Power On Software has released Action Files 1.5, a new update to its utility for enhancing the functionality of Open and Save dialog boxes. (See "Get a Piece of the Action Files" in TidBITS-434 for a review of Action Files 1.0.) Version 1.5 integrates with Navigation Services (the enhanced file dialogs that Apple introduced with Mac OS 8.5), adds a selection of new features and performance enhancements, and is compatible with Mac OS 9. Action Files 1.5 also integrates recent and favorite items with Action Menus, another Power On utility derived from the Now Menus component of the now-defunct Now Utilities package. Current owners of Action Files can update to version 1.5 for free (it's a 2.1 MB download); otherwise, an electronic version of Action Files 1.5 costs $30 from Power On, and CD-ROM versions are available from Power On and other vendors for $40.
