njr 2.0 4.4.2005


launch 1.0.1

launch 1.0.1 is out. Changes consist of some significant bug fixes, and a few small feature additions, most made yesterday.

  • prefer files to URLs when ambiguous; added -U option for old behavior
  • don’t display extraneous leading './' on file paths
  • display 'zero items', not '0 items', for consistency
  • display versions of non-applications
  • read Info.plists embedded in unbundled Mach-O applications
  • non-ASCII arguments are now handled with the filesystem, rather than the system encoding (thanks, Derrick Bass)
  • explicitly use UTF-8 everywhere else to properly interpret and display non-ASCII filenames and URLs
  • reading OSTypes and ‘vers’ resources, and opening URLs with Internet Config still uses the system encoding, converting as necessary for display
  • should be buildable on 10.2 again
I’m going to try to spend at least a few hours each Sunday working on my free software projects; even a little bit of time will help. 17:09:04 | comment [] | trackback [] #
