If Then Software Updates DeepSix With File Deletion Patch

If Then Software has released an update for DeepSix, bringing it to version 1.2. DeeSix is a utility designed for removing problematic font related files for improved Adobe and Flash performance. The update improves file deletion. According to If Then Software:

We just posted version 1.2 of DeepSix that will remove AdobeFNT.lst files, but NOT the dreaded AdobeFNT.DB files.

DeepSix is a simple utility that removes some of the font-related files that can cause some design-based applications to unexpectedly quit, especially Flash and Adobe products. First, the software removes the infamous "AdobeFnt" files that seem to replicate across the system.

Secondly, it removes the font cache files from the various libraries across the system. All of these files that are deleted are automatically rebuilt new when they are needed. Normally these can all be removed by hand, but that can be a tremendous time-waster to have to do various times a day in a busy environment. DeepSix will remove these files for you automatically each and every time.

As a side note, none of the people who have downloaded via versiontracker or MacNN, MacCentral, Macsonly, etc. have complained to us that any verison of Illustrator on their system didnit work after using DeepSix. The software is now patched to not remove this file just in case. We have also added a log feature to the software to let you know what is being removed and when it was removed. Sorry for the mistake in the previous version and we certainly hope it didnit bring any harm to anyoneis system.
