Leech 3.1.4—the pi release—is out

May 10th, 2019 by Rob Griffiths

Leech 3.1.4 is out with a couple of fixes. First, certain web servers were accepting URLs that didn’t lead to a file, but didn’t return an error. As a result, Leech would think the download succeeded, yet all you’d see in your Downloads folder was a file whose name ended with .leech—and if you have Leech set to clear successful downloads, it would also vanish from the window. Leech 3.14 is smarter about this, and no longer considers a successful connection the same as a successful download.

The other fix involved a scrolling issue in Mojave where part of the list would disappear on scroll, at least until you resized the window a bit.

Direct customers can update within the app by checking for updates, or by downloading a new copy of the app from the Leech web page. App Store customers should see the update in the App Store app soon, if not already.

Witch 4.3.3 released

April 9th, 2019 by Rob Griffiths

Witch 4.3.3 is out today with two fixes. First, Safari 12.1 changed the way it does tabs—to a way we’ve never seen before—and broke Witch’s tab support for Safari; that’s fixed now. Second, we’ve improved compatibility with Chrome Canary.

You can get the new version by using the in-app updater, or by downloading a new version from the Witch page.

Butler 4.3.2 released

April 9th, 2019 by Rob Griffiths

Butler 4.3.2 is out with only two changes—so no need to link to the release notes, but I will anyway. (And yes, that’s the same intro I used for Butler 4.3.1’s blog post.)

The first change is that Volumes Smart Items now sort alphabetically; the second is that Firefox bookmarks once again work in Butler (after you take this extra step). Thanks to Tony C. for asking about the Firefox bookmarks, which made us take another look.

You can get the new version by using the in-app updater, or by downloading a new version from the Butler page.

Name Mangler 3.5 released

March 4th, 2019 by Rob Griffiths

Name Mangler 3.5 is out now, with full support for macOS Mojave’s Dark Mode. We’ve also added a new Filter menu item (in the View menu) that lets you see only modified files (moved from the main View menu) or only files that generate errors or warnings (new and very useful). Check the release notes page for all the details.

Direct users can update within the app, or by downloading the full app from the Name Mangler page. App Store users should now (or shortly) see the update in the App Store app.

Butler 4.3.1 released

March 4th, 2019 by Rob Griffiths

Butler 4.3.1 is out with only two changes—so no need to link to the release notes, but I will anyway. Change number one fixed a bug that affected Contacts-related Smart Items under macOS Mojave. Change number two fixed a double-word typo in Butler’s Preferences that must have existed for years—thanks, Bill E. for noticing this one!

You can get the new version by using the in-app updater, or by downloading a new version from the Butler page.

Moom 3.2.14 released

January 31st, 2019 by Rob Griffiths

Moom 3.2.14 is out with some minor fixes—you can read the gory details on the release notes page.

One fix of note is that Moom should now work with apps that use Electron’s new version 4 release, such as Discord. (You’ll have to hover near the top of the green button to see Moom’s pop-up palette, as the invisible button we’re detecting isn’t perfectly aligned with the visible green button.)

Direct users can update from within the app or download a full version of the app from our site; App Store users should see a Moom update in the App Store app.

Witch 4.3.2 released

January 31st, 2019 by Rob Griffiths

Witch 4.3.2 is out. There aren’t a ton of changes in this version (release notes), but one of them could prove very useful: Witch’s status menu item will now tell you when secure input mode is enabled. (To see this, you need to have at least one switcher enabled in the menu bar.)

Why would you want to know this? Because if you have Witch set to use Command-Tab, we can’t capture those keys when secure input mode is active, and you’ll see the stock macOS switcher instead. Now Witch can (usually) tell you which app invoked secure input.

We also squashed a bug that caused some Chrome tabs not to respond to the ‘w’ key.

Updates are available within the Witch System Preferences panel, or you can just download a full new version from our site.

Desktop Curtain 3.0.9 released

January 31st, 2019 by Rob Griffiths

Desktop Curtain 3.0.9 is out with some minor changes and a fix for an occasional crashing bug for Mac App Store users (full release notes).

Direct customers should see an update available within the app (or they can download the full version directly from our site), and App Store customers should see the update in the App Store app.

Leech 3.1.3 released

December 18th, 2018 by Rob Griffiths

Leech 3.1.3 is out now; this is primarily a bug fix release—see the release notes for the gory details.

There is, however, one new addition to the Safari extension: You can specify a regular expression to help filter matches when using the extension’s “download all links” feature. You set the expression on Leech’s Advanced tab, and Leech then applies the filter so that only matched items are downloaded. (There are a couple examples of how to use it in the help file.)

App Store users should see the update in the App Store app; direct users can update in-app, or by downloading a new copy of the app from the Leech web page.

Butler 4.3 released

December 18th, 2018 by Rob Griffiths

Butler 4.3 is out now, with some bug fixes and a couple new features:

  • Chrome bookmarks can now be imported.
  • Deactivate defined hot corners by clicking the active radio button; it will deselect.

Check the release notes for all the details. You can get the new version via the in-app updater, or by downloading a fresh copy of the app from the Butler web page.
