File Buddy 7.0b7

"File Buddy 7 is the first version of File Buddy developed for OS X. The initial beta releases provide the ability to run natively with OS X. Later releases will address appearance issues and provide greater access to features new to OS X and OS 9 with CarbonLib."

OS 9/CarbonLib vs. OS X

File Buddy 7.0b7 works well with OS 9/CarbonLib. Several features (such as the info window and droplets) are working with OS X as well. However, there are several issues with OS X which we are still working to resolve.

Known Problems in v7.0b7

As noted above, File Buddy 7b6 works well with OS 9/CarbonLib. In OS X, we are investigating the following issues and expect to have them resolved for the next beta release:
•Commands to show items in the Finder or display an item's info in the Finder have no effect. We're working one this one as well.
•The following have yet to be rewritten: Orphaned Files, Empty Items, Unused Preferences.

Notes about v7.0b7 - September 18, 2001

•This beta expires at midnight on September 31, 2001. File Buddy 7b8 will be available before that time.
•The bug that caused a crash when adding additional items to a file list which was not empty has been found and fixed.
•Code being used to locate the aforementioned bug was unintentionally left in the release version of b6. The result was for File Buddy to create a file on the desktop named "AddToListBugLog" when it was launched. That code has been removed.
•Alias checking is now working in OS X.
