The beta has been out two days.
Again it seems some spam filters are preventing people from receiving the download information… No one has been turned away from this beta, so if you requested it, please tell your spam filter that mail from ansemond.com is not spam. If you email me again, I’ll be happy to send you the information a second time.
- Input Managers, aka Plugins: Two crashes on launch were due to third party plugins
- Cocoa: One bug seems to be that Cocoa gives me the wrong information (weird!)
- Flash plugins disabled: I believe this is due to a misconfigured computer, but I need to dig into it further.
- Rosetta: One report of Rosetta crashing on an Intel Mac, and thereafter Find It! Keep It! would not start again. To deal with this case I made a small program for Intel Mac owners that restarts Rosetta before starting Find It! Keep It!
Because people who are willing to run betas are people who try new things, they run plugins I’ve never even heard of, and have interestingly configured computers. Beta testing is trial by fire for the software being tested!
People downloading the tool use a wide spread of browsers: 60% use Safari, 21% use Firefox (1.5 & 2.0), followed by OmniWeb, Camino, Opera and something called iGetter
A few people seem to be hoping that it will work on 10.3.x… I’m afraid it won’t.
