Adobe Reader 8

John C. Welch doesn’t like the installer or the fact that Reader isn’t universal. The thing I found strange was that the installer immediately starts installing in /Applications as soon as you double-click it. It doesn’t ask where you want to install it, or even for confirmation that you want to install. Reader 8 seems much faster than 7, but the interface is very Windowsy.

EagleFiler 1.1

I’ve released an update to EagleFiler. You can now import more types of files, edit text and RTF records from within EagleFiler, search by tag, and much more. Most of the changes fall into the category of making it smoother to use.

DiskWarrior 4.0

At last, the Intel- and Tiger-savvy version of DiskWarrior is available. DiskWarrior is an essential utility that has saved me lots of time over the years. Alsoft is a pleasure to do business with, and they’re on the very short list of companies from whom I will buy an upgrade sight-unseen as soon as I see that a new version is available.
