Path Finder 4.8.2 Released

Posted November 12, 2007 at 10:02pm by iClarified
Path Finder 4.8.2 is now available. This update includes a number of important improvements for Mac OS X 10.5 users.

Path Finder 4.8.2 is a free upgrade for all licensed Path Finder 4 customers.

New Features available only on Mac OS X 10.5
- You can now set Path Finder as your "Default File viewer"! See the Path Finder Reveal preferences for this preference. Activating this will redirect all "Reveal in Finder" calls from other applications to Path Finder. Note that this may not work in all applications, but the majority should redirect to Path Finder correctly.
- QuickLook support: You can now view documents in Mac OS X 10.5's QuickLook. Access to this feature is available via a contextual menu item, by using the space bar keyboard shortcut, via the Commands menu, or via the toolbar button. As well, the QuickLook toolbar button changes to Slideshow if you hold down the Option key.

Leopard compatibility fixes
- Superuser operations (as root) are working again (this also fixes the inability to quit Path Finder after such an operation failed in previous versions of Path Finder)
- Fixed a problem where a "Launcher" folder appeared in the Dock while copying/moving/deleting files
- "Connect to Server" dialog works again
- Fixed an issue where weird numbers appeared in the tooltips in Column View and Size Browser (which made the latter crash)
- Fixed an issue with incorrect drawing of selection rectangle on the Desktop
- Select Tool works in Column View again
- Made List View more resource efficient under certain circumstances

Other fixes
- Fixes to "Reveal in Path Finder" preference (revealing in tab or existing window works again, and we correctly reveals in the frontmost window if Path Finder was hidden before)
- Minor Tab drawing fixes
- Removed drawer borders
