FolderGlance 2.5 released! Wed, Sep 16 2009 15:32

I'm pleased to announce the release of FolderGlance 2.5, whose main new feature is its ability to run on Snow Leopard. Judging by the volume of e-mail I have received, I know that many of you have been waiting for a Snow Leopard compatible version of FolderGlance. The new version is available for download as a zipped disk image, or you can visit the FolderGlance product page.

The new version does not add many other new features, apart from the ability to generate previews using QuickLook and an on/off toggle to turn FolderGlance on and off. It retains most of the features from its Leopard ancestor, although I have had to remove the language localizations and change some features due to the re-write that was necessary to bring FolderGlance to Snow Leopard. The most substantial non-feature related change is that FolderGlance now is a commercial product. The trial version that is available online limits the maximum number of sub-folders you can dig down into and includes purchase reminders. You can purchase a license online to unlock the full capabilities of FolderGlance on Snow Leopard. The earlier version for Mac OS X 10.5 and earlier remains free as before (although it will not work on Mac OS X 10.6 and later). One license is $20.

Happy FolderGlance'ing!
