Drop Drawers X, the Mac OS X user-interface enhancement from
Sig Software, has been updated to version 1.6. The update reintroduces key shortcuts for Mac OS X, fixes the dancing window problem, and clears up some other “minor” Mac OS X issues, according to Gideon Greenspan, lead developer for Sig Software.
Drop Drawers provides floating pullout, snap-shut drawers on the sides of your screen to store text, URLs, aliases, pictures, sounds, movies and other items. You can also work with data in a drawer. For example, styled text can be edited, applications and folders can be dragged onto them, URLs can be opened, pictures can be viewed and sounds and movies can be played. Drop Drawers currently has two drawer types, clip drawers and process drawers.
Version 1.6 for Mac OS X adds support for several Mac OS X technologies, including Quartz anti-aliased text, window transparency, long file names, native hot keys and contextual menu plug-ins. Version 1.6 for both Mac OS X and Mac OS 7.x through 9.x adds other new features such as separator drawer items, detection of key shortcut clashes and exporting a list of shortcuts.
Drop Draws 1.6 is available now for download. The upgrade is free for registered users. For others, the cost is US$20 for a single user.
