Default Folder Fixes AppleScript Bug

Fresh on the heels of version 3.8b2, St. Clair Software has released Default Folder 3.8b3. The latest version of the Open and Save dialog enhancer fixes a bug that caused a crash in certain situations while using Default Folder and AppleScriptis Script Editor. According to St. Clair Software:

Default Folder is a Mac OS 9 savvy control panel that enhances Open and Save dialog boxes to make it easier for Macintosh users to manage their files. It provides many of the essential features of the commercial ACTION Files, SuperBoomerang, and Directory Assistance utilities, but distinguishes itself by not including some infrequently used extras. By doing this, Default Folder provides faster, more stable, more memory-efficient operation than competitive offerings. Default Folder is also fully compatible with both Navigation Services and "classic" Open and Save dialogs.

Default Folder 3.0.8b3 is compatible with Mac OS 9.1 and OS X Classic, offers improved overall compatibility, and a new scripting addition that allows AppleScripts to control file dialogs.

This release fixes a crash that occurred when AppleScripts tried to display a file dialog while running within the Script Editor.

Default Folder is available for US$25. You can find more information at the St. Clair Software web site.
