Silk 2.1.1 released
Unsanity today released , its antialiasing product that enables Quartz text rendering and smoothing in Mac OS X 10.1.5, in all Carbon applications. SILK produces "silky smooth" text even when developers haven't updated their Carbon applications. SILK substitutes fonts on demand as well -- in applications, window titles, display menus, and other interface elements. An exclude list skips certain applications so that they work as intended by the developer, and a drop button in the SILK preference pane quickly detects if a particular application is Carbon. Version 2.1.1 addresses a crash bug related to Macromedia Dreamweaver 8, and includes Smart Crash Reports. A spurious message has been removed that appeared in the console log if the fallback font did not have a font family, as well. SILK 2.1.1 requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later and is priced at $10.
