Default Folder X 5.0.5 resolves reliability problems

Monday, June 6th, 2016

Icon-shadow.pngSo there’s been this long-standing issue with Default Folder X 5 – a number of people had written to say that it would occasionally beep and refuse to switch to a folder they’d selected from one of its menus. Until recently I couldn’t reproduce it here, but finally narrowed down the problem by creating an artificial test environment with several worst-case conditions all set up at once. I’m very happy (and relieved) to report that with that setup, I could get the problem to happen reliably enough to track it down and fix it. So…

Default Folder X 5.0.5 is now available, making folder switching more reliable (especially under Yosemite). Also in this release, I’ve made the Finder-click feature work more smoothly, added compatibility fixes for several applications, and addressed a few really annoying bugs and crashes.

The change history and download links are available on the Default Folder X Release page, or by choosing “Check for Updates” in your copy of Default Folder X (you are using Default Folder X, aren’t you?)
