Default Folder 3.0.6 Squashes Bugs -- St. Clair Software has released Default Folder 3.0.6, the shareware control panel that enhances the functionality of the Mac OS's Open and Save dialog boxes. (See "Tools We Use: Default Folder" in TidBITS-475 for a review.) Version 3.0.6 adds a pop-up menu in the Finder for quick access to recently used and favorite folders, but more importantly squashes a selection of bugs, including memory leaks in Navigation Services dialogs and corruption of Default Folder's preferences file (which could lead to crashes). Default Folder 3.0.6 is a 640K download and free to registered users of version 3.x or folks who registered version 2.x after 31-Jan-98. Otherwise, upgrades are $15 and new licenses are $25; French, German, and Japanese versions are also available. [GD]
