Default Folder X 4.7.2 : Revisiting Yosemite’s 50-foot-save-sheets and DFX’s trouble with alias files

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

Open with preview The 10.10.3 release of Yosemite fixed most of its “Attack of the 50 foot save sheet” issues, but a few remain. Specifically, in Photoshop and Illustrator there are still dialogs that grow larger each time you use them. Version 4.7.2 of Default Folder X fixes these problems.

Version 4.7.2 also adds additional safeguards to keep Default Folder X from hanging when it encounters damaged alias files, fixes some graphical glitches, and addresses a number of bugs and compatibility issues.

A full list of changes is available on the Default Folder X Release Page, along with links to download installers in English, German, French, Danish and Japanese. Because Default Folder X 4.7.2 includes a fix for possible freezes when it encounters bad alias files, we recommend that anyone who’s using Default Folder X upgrade to this version.

Public beta of Jettison 1.5 – new and improved!

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

After a lot of restructuring, debugging, testing and wrangling with various types of disks, Jettison 1.5 is close to finished. It handles ejecting and remounting more smoothly, and includes a workaround for situations where the old version failed to eject drives at sleep time because the screen was locked.

What I need now are some volunteers to do some final testing to make sure Jettison works well in all situations. If you’d like to try it, just download a copy here:

Once you’ve installed it, drop me an email at jettison@stclairsoft.com to let me know you’re testing it, then send any issues or questions to the same address if you encounter anything.

Thanks!
