Dropzone 0.4 Released

March 15th, 2011

Today I have two exciting pieces of news.

The first things is, Dropzone has finally been updated. The update is mostly bug fixes, but there are a couple of new things as well.

Moving files with Dropzone is now much faster, and a short delay before the grid opens has been added as many users (including myself) were finding that they were accidentally activating Dropzone when they really meant to drag a file to the trash. The share text destination has also been fixed.

If you want to tweak the delay before the grid opens when dragging, a hidden default has been added. You can adjust it by opening a Terminal and typing the following:

defaults write Dropzone dragDelay -float 0.25
killall "Dropzone Helper"

You then need to right click on the Dropzone dock icon, click ‘Quit Dropzone’ and then click the dock icon again to relaunch the helper and the main app.
The delay is in seconds and the default is 0.25.

The second piece of news is that I have finished my second app – Frenzy. The reason Dropzone has not been updated until now is I have been focusing completely on building this.

I’m really proud of how it has turned out and am releasing it today as a free beta. Take it for a spin at http://frenzyapp.com and let me know what you think.

Thank you all for supporting my work. I look forward to releasing many more updates for both Dropzone and Frenzy in the future.
