DockExtender allows you to minimize dock clutter by allowing you to create DockExtender Menus that fit right into the dock or quickly access them through a menu bar tool. These menus contain lists of programs that are completely configurable by you. This greatly enhances the clean look of the dock, and improves speed and usability of the dock.

The DockExtender menu bar tool also allows you to create multiple docks on your system and switch between them easily. Configuration takes place through the system preferences application right beside all other user preference settings.

What's New in Version 3.0B7

Bugs Fixed for v 3.0B7:

- Moving items within the Menu Configuration view no longer hangs or puts items in the incorrect location.
- Fixed problems for users installing DockExtender for the first time.
- Fixed Incompatibilities with OS X 10.1.x.
- Preference Pane no longer hangs for users who are not registered.
- '...' added to all items that bring up dialogs.
- Uninstall AppleScript replaced with a more reliable Uninstall application.

- When a menu hotkey is overwritten, the old hotkey is now released.
- Dockling menus load submenus properly
- HotKeys now get unassigned properly
- Preferences no longer have multiple entries of 'Menu Bar Tool' menu

New Features in v 3.0B7:

Known Issues in 3.0B7:

- Performance of Dockling Menus with large Dynamic Submenus is poor, and decreases proportionally with the number of items in the menu
- Dockling menu items with custom icons will not have correct icon in menu
- Using 'Insert Item...' in the Preference Pane to place an item in a submenu will place the item after the submenu
- Dockling menus with deep Dynamic Submenus or a very large number of items will not load properly

NOTE: If you tried Beta 4 through Beta 6 and the PreferencePane did not load for you, please try Beta 7. The bug that caused this problem has been solved.
