Rainer Brockerhoff has released an update for Zingg!, bringing it to version 1.2. Zingg! 1.0 is a fast launch contextual menu designed to enhance the Mac finder. Zingg! allows users to select certain apps from a list for secure launching. The update features bug fixes and other enhancements. According to Rainer Brockerhoff:

Rainer Brockerhoff announces the release of version 1.2 of Zingg!, a Fast Launch contextual menu for Mac OS X.

Zingg! shows a list of all applications that claim to open the selected file. The user can select certain applications to be always included or always excluded from the list, and Classic applications may receive special handling.

Version 1.2 has the following bug fixes and new functionality:

  • Under Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar), Zingg! crashed Internet Explorer (among other applications) when control-clicking on a link. This has been fixed
  • Also under 10.2, you can now use Japanese and other high-ASCII characters for the "Open With" string, and application names that use such characters also will show up correctly
  • The "Always Include (Override)" option has been added
  • The "Check for Updates..." menu item has been added. This allows you to quickly check for updates or news about Zingg!, if you are connected to the Internet
  • An alert shows up if you set too many "Always Include" and "Never Include" options
