DragThing, the dock application from
TLA Systems, has been updated to version 4.5, adding over 20 changes as well as bug fixes.
DragThing is an application dock for Mac OS 8.6 or higher (with the CarbonLib extension installed) or Mac OS X 10.0 or higher. It’s designed to tidy up the icons littering your desktop. You can drag an application from the Finder onto an empty square in a dock, then drag documents onto it as normal. You can click a docked application to launch it or bring it to the front.
With version 4.5, you can now turn docks into sliding drawers that work like pop-up windows from Mac OS 9. There’s improved support for Mac OS X 10.2 (“Jaguar”); for example, folder contextual menus can now go more than five levels deep. Support has been added for: custom sounds on Mac OS X and a “DragThing Sounds” folder and long URLs on Mac OS X. There are also new Jaguar-style value indicators to all the sliders in the options windows and new icon badges to show running apps and missing items. And there’s much more.
DragThing 4.5 is a free upgrade for registered users of version 4.x. It’s US$10 for registered users of any prior version of DragThing 2 and $25 for new users. Competitive upgrades are also available for $19 to users of Aladdin DragStrip 3, PowerOn ACTION GoMac 2, Semicolon Software’s “The Tilery”, and Sig Software’s Drop Drawers.
