Default Folder X 5.4.2 is now available. It’s a fairly small update, but important if you use MATLAB or are running Catalina.
The first improvement is a workaround for a bug in MATLAB that causes it to hang when Default Folder X is running (it also happens when VoiceOver, Magnet, Spectacles or a number of other apps are running, but I can’t fix that). Default Folder X will now wait until after MATLAB’s splash screen is dismissed before trying to communicate with it. That avoids triggering the bug.
The second change is a bug fix that gets rid of the annoying message that Default Folder X puts up repeatedly in Catalina telling you that the Finder needs to be relaunched. If you’ve run into this, you know what I’m referring to. You’ll no longer see that message unless you explicitly turn Default Folder X’s Finder toolbar buttons on or off in your preferences.
As always, details and download links are on the Default Folder X Release Page.
