Default Folder X 1.6.4 Released

Send Article to a Friend

Default Folder X 1.6.4 Released -- St. Clair Software has updated its utility for intelligently improving Open and Save dialogs under Mac OS X. Default Folder X 1.6.4 adds an optional icon to the Dock that can be used to access files or folders anywhere on your computer by Control-clicking it. Default Folder now includes an option to disable it in certain programs, works within Java applications, and includes a number of performance enhancements and bug fixes. The update is free to registered users, and is a 2.6 MB download. Registration costs $35, or $20 if you're upgrading from Default Folder 3.x for Mac OS 9. A competitive upgrade for owners of Power On Software's Action Files (which is not available under Mac OS X) costs $25. [JLC]
