TLA Systems on Thursday announced the release of
5.5, the latest version of their alternative to the Mac OS X Dock application. DragThing makes it easier to find files, folders, applications, URLs, clippings and other content. The new release adds full support for spring-loaded folders, new visual effects when switching between layers, a restricted-access “Classroom Mode,” the ability to turn DragThing into a background-only application, editable text clippings and more — over 50 improvements in all. DragThing 5.5 is a free update for registered DragThing 5 users, and costs $29 to register. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2 or later.
