Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.0

� New Features:

  • Pref Setter now uses the authorization frameworks to enable editing of system level plist files.
  • New tool bar item and menu items in the contextual menus for the ââ?¬Å?Open Domain Quicklyââ?¬? window and Find panel which will allow you to launch or quit the application a property list belongs to.
  • Data items are now editable, in a separate hex editor window.
  • If a value is too long to be shown entirely while editing, a separate window will now open to allow easier editing.
  • You can now use regular expressions when searching.
  • Added the Sparkle framework, for automatic updates.

� Changed Features:

  • Changed display of dates to show a formatted date string rather than the raw date.
  • If you copy/drag an item from a non-writable file, the ââ?¬Å?defaults writeââ?¬Â¦Ã¢â?¬? string generated will now have sudo written before it.
  • Can now display dictionaries and arrays in a preference document in bold.
  • ââ?¬Å?Open Domain Quicklyââ?¬? window now shows icons.
  • Font for the items in the ââ?¬Å?Open Domain Quicklyââ?¬? window is now separately set from the document font.
  • You can now change a class to a Data type (though you canââ?¬â?¢t change a Data type to another class).
  • Updated Preference pane.
  • Updated Find panel.
  • Updated Get Info window.
  • Updated Help documentation.
  • Pref Setter now requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.

� Bug Fixes:

  • Leopard compatibility fixes.
  • Fixed a bug where pasting or dragging a ââ?¬Å?defaults writeââ?¬Â¦Ã¢â?¬? string with a boolean type would always default to true.
  • Fixed a bug where pasting or dragging a ââ?¬Å?defaults writeââ?¬Â¦Ã¢â?¬? string of either the -array-add or -dict-add type would replace the entire array or dictionary with the new value rather than adding the new value.
  • Fixed a bug that could lead to a crash when changing the class to a Boolean, Integer, Float, or Date class.
  • ââ?¬Å?Open Domain Quicklyââ?¬? window no longer allows you to delete the preferences of a running application, which could lead to that application crashing.
