has updated Quicksilver, the unified, extensible interface for working with applications, contacts, music, and other data. Version 1.0 Beta 56 A5 includes fixes only, but just enough to make the update a must have.
According to Blacktree, the plugin download getting stuck shouldn't happen anymore, “but it seems the Eclipse plugin fails to unpack correctly, so you won't be able to download it.” Also, the developer claims to have been forced to disable the progress bar, “because IIRC it was actually causing the problem (yes, there is no supported way of knowing a download progress in Apple's API, go file bug reports guys, this is a shame),” he says.
Other changes include:
- fixed the issue I introduced by not checking for smaller parts of an abbreviation (fx will now correctly match Firefox)
- trigger scoping
- dockable windows that have a tendency to a) spring out when
- application changes b) get stuck in one space do (or should) not do this anymore
- tried to “blindingly” fix the Shelf crash bug (the developer asks those who can reproduce the bug to contact him).About Quicksilver
Quicksilver is basically a launcher that allows users to navigate to what they need quickly and easily, while not taking their hands off the keyboard. Users simply activate Quicksilver with a keystroke and hit Return / Enter to launch it.
Quicksilver indexes and parses selected parts of the contents of the user's hard drive in the Catalog, so that it locates and displays the items matching that user's search really quickly. For programmers, the software can be extended and customized “until it does exactly what you want it to,” according to Blacktree.
Quicksilver 1.0 Beta 56 A5 is a universal build, with included default plugins. To download the new software, use the link below.Download Quicksilver (Free)
