CandyBar 3 due in November
Panic has announced that CandyBar 3, the forthcoming update to its system icon customization software for Mac OS X. CandyBar 3 brings users the ability to customize some of the look of Mac OS X Leopard's new Dock, according to Panic, and as always features CandyBar's easy system icon customization engine. Users can change the trash can icon or replace the new Leopard default folder with drag-and-drop simplicity, and no hacking or memory patches are involved. The update fully supports Apple's new larger Leopard icons at 512 pixels wide/high. CandyBar 3 pricing is not yet determined, but is scheduled to ship before the end of November. CandyBar 3 will only run on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, according to Panic.
The company notes however that the current version -- CandyBar 2 -- will not run on Apple's Leopard software, which is due to hit store shelves later this week. CandyBar 2 will be effectively discontinued upon the release of CandyBar 3.
"The wand-wielding software magicians here at Panic and the pixel pushers at The Iconfactory are working overtime to prepare CandyBar 3, the major update to our ever-popular Mac OS X icon customization utility! The new version of CandyBar will be better than ever, and absolutely worth the wait," Panic said.
