DropPrint 1.1

DropPrint is a small application that uses various Macintosh technologies (both Carbon and Cocoa) to implement a feature that was in Systems 7.5 through 9.x, but has been missing from Mac OS X so far: drag and drop printing. DropPrint will take a file or group of files dropped onto its icon, and instruct the file(s)' creating application to load up and print the file(s).

* Added a new feature for PostScript printer users: Postscript forwarding. This option, if turned on, will have DropPrint forward PostScript files directly to PostScript printers, just like the old LaserWriter 8 driver used to do.
* DropPrint now loads Print Center by file descriptor instead of hard path, which means that the "Open Print Center" command should now work if Print Center is located at a path other than "/Applications/Utilities/Print Center.app". If DropPrint can't load the Print Center for any reason, it will now present an error message instead of doing nothing.
* DropPrint is no longer described in the Finder's Get Info as an "Except Applications" document type, and is now correctly described as an "Application."
