HotApp RC6: function keys and shortkeys utility for Mac OS X

    HotApp is an OS X-native utility, developped by TrufSoft, which allows you to use fuction keys or shortkeys to launch applications, files or access system preferences. The current version is HotApp RC6. It introduces a major change compared to previous release of HotApp : HotApp is now a daemon and the configuration is done by using the System Preferences application. HotApp do not install anymore an icon in the menu bar. This releaseis still a beta. Its expiration date is set to December 22th 2001.

    HotApp RC6 has a new user interface. You now simply need to click on the "Set key" button to define the key combination for a particular application. This key combination can include function keys (F1, F2, up to F15). We particularly love the idea of having customized function keys.


    iMate driver for OS X released

      Griffin Technology, Inc. has posted a beta version of the iMate driver for OS X for their iMate USB to ADB adapter. The driver can be downloaded from Griffin's web site. The new driver supports all currently available ADB drivers including the Kensington Mouseworks driver for OS X. For the first time ever, ADB devices are completely hot pluggable as the iMate OS X driver loads custom ADB driver even when connected after startup. Under OS 9, ADB devices had to be attached during startup for custom ADB drivers to load. The driver also supports multiple iMates. You can now connect several iMates to a single machine and each will provides a separate ADB interface that can load custom drivers for any devices that are attached. This provides for the possibility of being able to connect over 800 ADB devices to a single computer.


      Application and process killer for OSX : Quitling released

        A new application and process killer dockling has been released : Quitling. With Quitling, you can terminate any application or background process from the comfort of your Dock, with or without its consent. Designed as a Dockling, Quitling sits in the Dock at all times and keeps a list of open applications. Select an application from the menu and it dies a quick death, regardless of whether it's launching, running normally or frozen. Want to keep programs from even starting? Quitling's AutoKill feature will keep Classic and those pesky alternate web browsers at bay. Running mail programs that you always want open? Server software that must be online at all times? The AutoStart function takes care of that, allowing you to restart any applications or processes when they quit or crash. Quitling will be number one on the list of programs that you shouldn't need, but find invaluable anyway.
