Apimac has released an update for Secret Folder, bringing it to version 2.6. Secret Folder is a utility designed for securely hiding files. The update features Panther optimizations and window enhancements. According to Apimac:
Apimac is pleased to announce Apimac Secret Folder X 2.6, the latest release of its shareware application that allows users to hide a folder and its contents.
The new build required a major code optimization for further Panther compatibility. Thus Apimac Secret Folder X 2.6 is safer than ever, since prevents users to unwittingly delete a hidden folder by placing a similar named item at the same directory level, to hide a parent folder of the application file or any Mac OS X required directory. It sports a better support of the drag and drop interface, where dragged folders display translucent icons and discarded folders disappear with a "poof" effect.
Also Apimac Secret Folder main window resembles the actual icon at Finder, hilites when a folder is dragged onto it, and rejects non folder items. For a better user experience, the new version automatically acknowledges a previously hidden folder with older v2.4.x.
You can find more information about the Secret Folder update at the Apimac Web site. Secret Folder 2.6 is free for registered users, while the full version is available for US$14.95.
