[prMac.com] Belo Horizonte, Brazil - Rainer Brockerhoff has announced an update to Quay, a system utility for Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard" and 10.6 "Snow Leopard". Quay extends the Dock's functionality, allowing the user to sort Stack menus in several useful ways, and see extra information for each item.
Quay works transparently with the Dock and uses very few system resources. It follows aliases and symbolic links, and shows popup menus for Smart Folders. The user can restrict it to work only with certain Stacks, or fall back to the standard Dock menu/grid by holding down the Option key. Quay items can be generated with customized icons and inserted on either the file/window or the application side of the Dock. Unlike the standard Dock, Quay always follows aliases or symbolic links, and works correctly even with folders containing tens of thousands of items. Finally, Quay shows extra information about running applications.
New features in version 1.1.2:
* Now also works with Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
* Quay now works correctly with the Finder's canned searches, if you drag them directly from the Finder to the Dock
Pricing and Availability:
Quay is Euro 7 shareware. It will work indefinitely, for free, for the first folder/Quay icon on each side of the Dock; process information for all running applications is a free bonus.
Rainer Brockerhoff has been programming since 1969, for the Mac since 1984. His RBSplitView open-source framework is used by nearly a hundred published applications, and several other shareware and freeware applications can be found on his website.
