Finder Enhancement Zingg! Updated

Rainer Brockerhoff has released an update for Zingg!, bringing it to version 1.1. Zingg! is a fast launch contextual menu designed to enhance the Mac finder. The update includes several performance enhancements and bug fixes. According to Rainer Brockerhoff:

Rainer Brockerhoff announces the immediate availability of Zingg! 1.1, an update to the 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.

New in version 1.1:

  • Zingg! now resolves symbolic links prior to checking for duplicate entries in the application list. If you have moved or duplicated your Applications folder using symbolic links, only one copy of each application will show up
  • Activating "Caps Lock"" will show full pathnames in the menu. This was actually implemented in 1.0, but not documented
  • The installer now allows you to select either the User Domain (~/Library/Contextual Menu Items) or the Local Domain (/Library/Contextual Menu Items) for installation; you can also just uninstall an existing copy of Zingg!
  • Zingg! now works in any application or file browser that provides file contexts to the default contextual menu, such as Sherlockis lower pane
  • Now you can select multiple rows in the application list and change them all at once
  • Thereis a new option to show "(always)" and "(default)" comments after applications that are always included, or that are the default application for one of the selected items, respectively
  • Now you can select where the "Configure Zingg!..." menu item will appear in the contextual menu: at top, at bottom, or only if "Caps Lock" is activated
