File Buddy X 7.0b8
Sep 21, 2001 08:52AM
Contributed by: Perry
Download: BinHex

"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."

Known Problems in v7.0b8
As noted above, File Buddy 7b8 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 v7.0b8 - September 20, 2001
This beta expires at midnight on September 31, 2001. File Buddy 7b6 will be available before that time.
A bug has been fixed which would cause a droplet set up to delete resource forks to actually delete data forks.
A bug that would cause a crash when the dialog was displayed for entering your serial number.
Aliases created by File Buddy are now actually created by the Finder at File Buddy's instruction.
It appears Check Aliases has a problem when checking very large volumes. The problem has been reported for 60 GB drives. The problem has not been reported with smaller volume sizes such as 20 GB.
A few other very minor changes.
