DesktopSweeper 1.2b1

Here's DesktopSweeper 1.2b1, for those who would be interested in beta testing it (if you don't know what DesktopSweeper is, see this page about the previous version).

Here too the main goal was to bring full Tiger support, so the changes aren't much visible. Here they are:

  • Due to changes in Tiger's Finder, it was longer possible to take the Finder to the front by clicking on the Desktop when icons were hidden. This is fixed.
  • At the moment, though, it's no longer possible to drop items on the Desktop when icons are hidden (because of the way I worked around those changes in the Finder). I haven't decided yet if I should fix it because the new behavior makes sense to me; so let me know what you think. On the bright side, these changes also fixed the problems where you could make hidden icons visible or switch them to "renaming" mode by clicking on them.
  • Fixed a bug where Desktop icons were no longer clickable if the "Hide new items" pref was unchecked while icons were hidden.
  • Now comes with the latest version of Unsanity's APE and installer (also fully compatible with Tiger).

I'm planning to release the final version within a couple of days, so if you try the beta I'd appreciate if you could let me know how it works for you ASAP. And please wait for the final release before announcing it elsewhere.
