Default Folder 3.0.6 Available


St. Clair Software has released Default Folder 3.0.6, their shareware system extension which 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 new 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 instability and crashes). Default Folder 3.0.6 is a 640K download, and is 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.
