FolderGlance 3.0.1 supports Lion Wed, Jul 20 2011 19:42

Apple released Mac OS X 10.7 Lion today, and I'm releasing FolderGlance 3.0.1. The new release brings a number of fixes and minor new features, but importantly, it also makes FolderGlance work with the new OS release from Apple. Other new features include a setting to turn the display of volumes in the menu extra on or off, and the ability to mount aliases to network volumes when mousing over such aliases in FolderGlance's menus with the Option-key held down.

There is currently one known bug with FolderGlance on Lion: It will display a very unfriendly name for the new "MobileBackups" volume created by Lion on portable Macs. This will hopefully be fixed in the next version of FolderGlance.

If you're curious as to how FolderGlance can continue working on Lion when Apple has disabled support for Scripting Additions, feel free to drop me a line or let me know in the comments.
