true launch bar 4 is out today
« on: June 27, 2006, 06:31:56 AM »
even though i have my own program (launchbar commander) that has similar aspirations, the program True Launch Bar, clearly one of the best launch bar tools ever made, has today released version 4:

http://www.truelaunchbar.com/

True Launch Bar is also one of the most reasonably priced programs out there.  it's now $15 on their site (and donationcoder.com members can get it for $10 here: http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=2250.0).

Hard to beat that deal and certainly worth a look (note there is also a free launch bar on their site).



the only thing worth mention is that the change history from version 3.2 to version 4 says only: "Some minor changes "
 :huh:

Yeah, funny that he just lists "some minor changes" on the history page!

One of the minor changes made after the last release candidate is a fix for a delay with TLB startup. At least I am no longer getting a delay. :)
