Default Folder X ready for Leopard

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007

To all those who are wondering (and haven’t emailed yet) – yes, Default Folder X 3.0.6 is mostly compatible with Leopard. It’ll run fine, but there are a few wrinkles – mainly that it doesn’t work with 64-bit applications. ┬áAs far as I’m aware, that basically means it doesn’t work with Xcode – I don’t think there are any other 64-bit apps shipping yet (and yes, I know – if you’re a developer, Default Folder X not working in Xcode is still extremely annoying).

The good news is that I have a development build of Default Folder X 4 running in Leopard so I can get my own work done in Xcode. ┬áThis new, Leopard-savvy version will be seeing the light of day (or the glow of other users’ screens) soon. ┬áThe interface has been revamped, it uses QuickLook to generate nice previews that you can see even if you’re in ‘list mode’ in an Open dialog, and it fixes a few nigglety little things in Leopard. ┬áSome screenshots are on the way…
