Pref Setter 2.0 released
Night Productions has posted v2.0 of Pref Setter, a tweaking utility for Mac OS X. The software lets users view and edit property list (.plist) files, which are said to frequently contain setting options hidden in standard menus and control panels. It also makes the files easier to find, and can import "defaults write" strings without the user having to open Terminal.
The second edition introduces authentication support, as well as a hex editor for adjusting values. Apps can now be launched or quit directly from within Pref Setter, and the interface has been given a graphical overhaul. Mac OS X 10.3.9 is required; the program is also free, though donations are encouraged.
