A shortfall of Mac OS X has just gone. Alfred is an easy to use, customizable, universal plug-in manager. Inspired from Mac OS 9's Finder and Extensions Manager, taking care of Mac OS X specificities, it improves user experience to install, remove and manage any kind of plug-ins like screen savers, preference panes, fonts... or anything else.
Main features include:
- Easy plug-in installation, management and removal.
- Dedicated user interface cataloging installed plug-ins.
- File inspectors with preview.
- Generic engine using customizable rules.
- One-click plug-in installation using the contextual menu module from the Finder.
- When installing several similar files at once, Alfred now remembers the destination settings of the first file and uses them for the next ones instead of asking for every file.
- It is now necessary to authenticate only once when repeatedly launching Alfred to perform some administration operations within a short period of time.
- Added support for copying files into the clipboard from the managers.
- The built-in rules are not editable anymore.
- Added a button in the rule inspector to explicitly turn a built-in rule into a custom rule so that it can be edited.
- The "Alfred" item from the "Window" menu nows toggles the main window.
- The "Flyer" item from the "Window" menu nows toggles the flyer window.
- The items of the main menu related to the installation and the management of the files were not working with the managers.
- When installing several files at once, the report was not generated if the last installed file was not reported.
- In the rule inspector, the pending confirmation dialog for deleting a rule description was not correctly dismissed when the inspected rule changed.
- Fixed the cascading behavior of most windows of the application.
- Cleaned some code.
