LaunchBar — a utility from Objective Development that opens files, URLs and e-mail addresses when you type the appropriate abbreviations — has been updated to version 3.2.4, and is now Jaguar ready. Version 3.2.4 also reads Chimera, Mozilla and iCab bookmark files, as well as “Group vCard” files exported from the new Jaguar Address Book.
There are new preferences options to remove duplicate items from the search result. Filetype recognition and file scanning has been rewritten. Scanning for files is now up to 30 percent faster, invisible files are now ignored properly and the scan now considers the HFS type code as well as the filename extension, according to the folks at Objective Development.
With LaunchBar 3.2.4, filename extension processing is now case insensitive. It’s no longer necessary to maintain two versions (uppercase / lowercase) of the same extension. There are also new activation hot keys (Control-Tab, Control-Esc). Help pages are now displayed in the Web browser. Copy/Paste onto LaunchBar now trims surrounding white space characters and accepts multiple file paths separated by lines. The configuration window is now more self-explanatory.
The update is free to registered users of version 3.x. Those new to the product must register it for US$19.95. LaunchBar 3.2.4 is now available for download.
