Shareware developer Rainer Brockerhoff has updated Zingg!, the update to the free launch contextual menu for Mac OS X, to version 1.1.
Zingg! shows a list of all applications that claim to open the selected file. You can choose certain applications to always be included or always excluded from the list. Classic applications can receive special handling.
With the latest version, Zingg! resolves symbolic links prior to checking for duplicate entries in the application list. If you’ve moved or duplicated your Applications folder using symbolic links, only one copy of each application will show up.
With version 1.1, activating Caps Lock will show full pathnames in the menu. The installer now lets you select either the User Domain (~/Library/Contextual Menu Items) or the Local Domain (/Library/Contextual Menu Items) for installation. You can also uninstall an existing copy of Zingg!.
The fast launch contextual menu now works in any application or file browser that provides file contexts to the default contextual menu, such as Sherlock’s lower pane. You can now choose multiple rows in the application list and change them all at once.
Zingg! 1.1 also adds a new option to show “(always)” and “(default)” comments after applications that are always included or that are the default application for one of the selected items, respectively. Plus, you can now select where the “Configure Zingg!” menu item will appear in the contextual menu: at the top, bottom or only if Caps Lock is activated.
Zingg! 1.1 can be downloaded from the
product info page. Mac OS X 10.1 is required; version 10.1.2 is recommended.
