TLA ships DragThing 5.7
TLA Systems today released DragThing 5.7 after a successful public beta test. The update to its alternative dock software adds support for dock themes -- offering users a simple way to customize the look of DragThing docks. DragThing is designed to make items on a Mac such as files, folders, applications, disks, URLs, clippings, and windows easily accessible while taking up as little space on the screen as possible. Users can choose from a wide range of styles in one location, and the software ships with dozens of themes. Theme formatting is entirely open and XML-based, allowing all users to create custom dock themes for the community. DragThing is available for $12 to registered users of DragThing 2 and 4, or $30 for new users. The application requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary.
