DragThing, TLA Systems’ dock application for Mac OS X and earlier, has been revved to version 4.2.
DragThing is a Carbon application that runs natively on Mac OS X, and on Mac OS 8.6 and 9 with CarbonLib 1.1 or later installed. The latest version is the 20th update of the product.
“The original dock designed to tidy up your Macintosh desktop” now uses the native Quartz graphics of Mac OS 10.1 for an improved Aqua appearance, including an option for translucent docks, and anti-aliased icons. You can put the Trash back on the Desktop “where it belongs” on Mac OS 10.1, using DragThing’s new “Desktop Trash Technology,” according to James Thomson of TLA Systems.
With DragThing 4.2, you can bring all the windows of an application to the front automatically when you switch to it, or by using a hot key. It has beefed up hierarchical content menus for folders, including support for aliases. Thomson said DragThing now offers greater control over how dock items are located, using a combination of aliases and full paths. And it packs support for
Super Get Info
developed by Bare Bones Software, a utility that allows multiple “Get Info” windows on Mac OS X.
DragThing 4.2 is ready for download in English, Japanese, German, French and Italian. It’s a free upgrade for existing registered users of DragThing 4, US$10 for registered users of previous versions and $25 for new users. Competitive upgrades are also available for $19 to users of Aladdin DragStrip 3 and PowerOn ACTION GoMac 2.
