OpenStrip 0.2: Open Source Control Strip of Mac OS X
From: "Joseph J. Strout" ( Subject: [ANN] OpenStrip v0.2 I've just posted version 0.2 of OpenStrip, the open-source replacement for the Control Strip for Mac OS X. This version includes the following improvements: - implemented SBLoadPreferences and SBSavePreferences - modules now receive a sdevSaveSettings message before closing - strip window position is now saved between runs - OpenStrip now responds to the Quit AppleEvent; this means that it quits properly when the system is shutting down, or when the Quit command under the application menu is used These changes constitute a significant step forward over the last release of OpenStrip. OpenStrip comes with several built-in modules (including a digital clock that doesn't get in your way!), and should be immediately useful to users of OS X. Additional modules are under development, and I encourage the authors of any Control Strip modules to contact me about updating those modules for OS X. For more information, or to...
