LaunchBar 3.2 beta for Mac OS X is now available from the developers at Objective Development. It’s an OS X native version of the utility tool that lets you browse all of your files, applications, Web bookmarks, and e-mail addresses by entering abbreviations.
Besides Mac OS X compatibility, the 3.2 beta has improved performance. The folks at Object Development say it’s more than twice as fast. It also has enhanced drag & drop functionality, offering a variety of file operations (Aliases, Symlinks, and more). There’s a new preferences panel with a several new options.
In LaunchBar 3.2 beta, alias names can now be assigned to URLs and e-mail addresses as well. The list of running apps can now be browsed backwards using the Shift key. There have also been some minor bug fixes, as well as other improvements and optimizations.
The final 3.2 version is due next month. LaunchBar provides a free, built-in evaluation license, sufficient for occasional use. The LaunchBar Business License is available for US$39 per seat. A home user license — restricted to non-commercial, non-profit use — is $19.95.
