The things we love about our Macs don’t always come out of Cupertino. Many of our favorite Mac things are shareware apps that make the Mac experience even better. It is often those software jewels that can keep us from enjoying a new operating system like the soon-to-be-released Leopard–it just isn’t the same unless we can bring those apps with us.
Hazel lovers need not worry. Noodlesoft’s housekeeper for your folders and files is now Leopard-ready as of version 2.1. This version also features expanded file type filtering and new actions for creating aliases and revealing files. In addition, Hazel 2.1 provides numerous fixes and performance improvements.
I demonstrated Hazel on The Lab with Leo Laporte earlier this year in a segment spotlighting ways to keep your hard drive from overflowing unnecessarily. Using Hazel’s powerful rule engine, you can easily create workflows that keep your files organized automatically. Hazel also features options for managing your Trash and includes an intuitive application uninstaller.
Hazel 2.1 is a free upgrade for existing registered users and is available for download now. Hazel has a retail price of USD$21.95.
