CandyBar 3.1 Released
Wednesday, December 12, 2007
Posted by: Brian

The Iconfactory and Panic have announced the release of CandyBar 3.1. According to the companies, CandyBar 3.1 adds new features and loads of improvements like "Dock Previewing" that lets you see what a Dock looks like without having to apply it. The Dock preview can even be displayed over your current desktop picture to help you decide if you want to use it.

Other changes include:

- Added additional changeable icons to System, including the "Location Icons"
- Added Cancel button to the Change view, to clear un-applied modified icons
- Added ability to add Dock parts to the current collection
- Added a top level "change" menu to improve accessibility of some features
- Can now clear a collection's Dock
- Reorganized / improved the Save as iContainer panel options (making it easier to save Dock only iContainers)
- Added contextual menu to open icon author's website
- Improved "deleting" feedback to clarify delete methods
- Fixed a potential issue with deleting icons/collections
- Option-Delete now acts like Command-Delete to move icons and collections to the Trash
- Icon metadata will be maintained when saving System icons to an iContainer
- Fixed a potential crash when applying volume icons
- Migrating Pixadex data no longer fails when library path has never been set
- Converting from Pixadex 1.x library now works as expected
- Importing icos with png data is now more reliable
- Can now set a custom folder/smart collection icon
- Added support for batch editing of CandyBar identifiers
- CandyBar identifiers are now sorted alphabetically in the Info window
- Fixed crash on launch when Helvetica Neue isn't installed
- Collections can now be named the same if desired
- "Save iContainer As..." file menu is enabled in more situations
- Improved the scaling animation of Get Info / Icon look windows
- Improved text rendering, and other miscellaneous UI glitches in the Change section
- Fixed a few issues in the icon view
- Importing images larger than 512x512 will now create a 512x512 icon of that image

The update is free for registered users of version 3.0. CandyBar 3.1 is priced at $29 and requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later. A demo is available.

I like the new Dock preview. CandyBar 3 seriously rocks, but I'm still a little mad at Panic for the upgrade price. It cost me $24 bucks to update to an application that costs $29 bucks new. Rolling Eyes
