[prMac.com] Eternal Storms Software today announced the immediate availability of HierarchicalDock Version 1.1, an application which brings the folder behavior of the Dock of Mac OS X 10.4 to Leopard 10.5 - so additional to Stacks, you can browse the whole hierarchy of your folders. All that needs to be done is to create a folder with HierarchicalDock, drag it to your Dock and you're set.
New in this version is the use of QuickLook previews for files instead of file icons (optional) and two new sorting-modes (by "last used date" and "creation date", additionally to alphabetical sorting). Alias files are now resolved, too. Many bugs have been fixed as well, like the change in the screen's brightness when clicking on a folder and the alphabetical sorting on the various localizations of Mac OS X.
Additional to this new functionality, HierarchicalDock can show you hidden files and copy file paths by the click of the mouse button. It is extremely lightweight and only runs when you click onto a folder created with HierarchicalDock. It is not a hack but works with a filetype HierarchicalDock knows to interpret.
Mac OS X 10.5 or higher, Universal Binary 1.4 MB Hard Drive space

HierarchicalDock is Freeware, but Donations are greatly appreciated. It is available as a free download from Eternal Storms Software's site.
