[prMac.com] Khmelnitsky, Ukraine - February 14, 2008 - LikeMac Group has just released the latest version of its double-pane file manager for Mac OS X, Disk Order, adding to it a handful of useful features making the application more attractive.
Among them are new plugins:
* iPod Browse plugin that allows to view and download music from iPod's music library. It can display songs listed by artist, album or genre. In short, everything like real iPod, even movies and podcasts.
* Rar Upacker plugin that adds support of RAR format. Unfortunately it doesn't allow to compress archives, but it can easily unpack or browse existing packages.
* Send To Mail, Send To Application & Send To Folder plugins. These are the set of additions that are displayed in Send To menu, helping you quickly, with one click of a mouse, to email or send files to any application or folder.
Also, current release features a completely refined Editor and Viewer. These are the built-in utilities for viewing and editing files. The latest has been made to allow easy switching between viewing modes. You can simply click 'View as Picture', 'View as Movie' or 'View as Plain Text'. Or if you're developer, there is two additional modes specially for you: 'View as Binary' & 'View as Hex'. What is more pleasant, Binary & Hex modes allow to open really big files without delay.
Support of archives has been also greatly improved. Now Disk Order can pack and unpack the most popular archive formats. These are zip, tar, tgz, gz, bz2 and other. Decompression is now simplier too. Just click Decompress icon in toolbar and you're done.
What is really nice about overral application's usability is that you can do color and appearance custiomization. Not only background color can be changed but also the color of selection and text. Additionally you can change the style of main window to look metallic or classically white...
And what is you're sure to like right away is that you'll be opening new tabs with a simple double-click!
Disk Order was designed to be a decent substitution of Finder, that could offer users time-saving double-panel interface and ultimate file management at the same time. It suits best for those who used to work on other platforms with applications like Total Commander or Directory Opus. Also, it's a great choice for portables owners as it allows to perform nearly all file operations with fast key combinations, saving time and omitting frustration from using track-pad in Finder.
The application is available in two versions, PowerPC and Universal Binary. Both versions can be downloaded free of charge as 30-day trial shareware.
