AppMenuBoy 1.0 released
Google is hosting a new extension for Mac OS X Leopard, called AppMenuBoy. Like Quay, the program addresses an interface change to Leopard, in which Apple removed hierarchical menus in the Dock. This has been partially restored in Mac OS X 10.5.2, which lets users set the Applications menu to list mode when dragged into the Dock, but this is not the same as in Tiger, which presents submenus for anything under Applications.
AppMenuBoy is said to return Leopard to full Tiger functionality, and improve convenience even further. It now follows aliases, and will only display applications. Additionally, if a folder has only an application, the icon will be "hoisted" so as to avoid creating nests of folders with only one item each. AppMenuBoy is a free download.
