May 16th, 2007 — Glasgow, Scotland and Tel Aviv, Israel — TLA Systems Ltd
are pleased to announce the immediate release of DragThing 5.8, a
significant update to their popular dock application for Mac OS X. It is
available now from www.dragthing.com.
Sig Software and TLA Systems are also both pleased to announce that
DragThing is now the official upgrade path for all existing users of Sig
Software’s Drop Drawers. In a rare collaboration between independent
developers, TLA Systems and Sig Software have worked closely together for
the past few months to make this transition as smooth as possible.
Beginning with this release, DragThing can now directly import your
settings from Drop Drawers, including the contents, keyboard shortcuts, and
appearance of drawers. Many new features have been added to this release
specifically to make Drop Drawers users feel more at home, and we’re
confident DragThing users will enjoy them too.
According to James Thomson of TLA Systems, “We’re looking forward to
welcoming the many Drop Drawers users out there to DragThing. With the help
of Sig Software and an extensive beta process with a select group of Drop
Drawers users, we’ve worked hard to ensure this release will be a worthy
upgrade for them.”
Gideon Greenspan of Sig Software added, “DragThing is an outstanding
product, which provides all the functionality of Drop Drawers and so much
more. TLA Systems have done a superb job with the importing, and I’m sure
users of Drop Drawers will enjoy the many extra features that DragThing has
to offer. I’m now running DragThing myself!”
Registered users of Sig Software’s Drop Drawers can upgrade to DragThing
for the special price of $19, a $10 discount on the normal cost of $29.
This release is also free for registered users of DragThing 5. Upgrades can
be purchased directly within the application or from the following order
