This download contains the English, French, and Japanese localizations
in a single application package.

AliasMenu adds customized menus to the menu bar. Each menu extra has a
corresponding folder and the menu automatically reflects the folder's

Create your own menus for Preferences, favorite Folders, often used
Applications, an Internet menu including applications and web bookmarks,
a Documents menu, a Utilities menu... Possibilities are endless. Any
folder you create for AliasMenu instantly becomes an extra menu.

The menu name can be replaced by an icon, to make it nicer or to save
room in the menu bar and add more menus. Simply paste a custom icon on
the folder.

Version 3 has been entirely rewritten for Mac OS X and is fully Panther compatible.

* Create Any Number of Menus: User-defined menus are actual menu
extras, like the clock or volume menu. If you have a large screen, you
can easily add as many as 15 or 20 menus. Submenus are supported.

* Open Every Kind of Items: As did the old Apple menu, AliasMenu opens
any object placed in one of its menus: applications, documents, folders,
servers, scripts, and even URLs.

* Powerful Keyboard Shortcuts: AliasMenu uses the 'ctrl' key by default
instead of 'command' for the keyboard shortcuts, to avoid "collisions"
with the applications' shortcuts. Assign shortcuts to anything,
including folders and Internet bookmarks!

[3.1.2] This is a bug-fix update. In some situations, a custom icon used as
a menu title could freeze the menu auto-updating.

What's new in version 3.1?

* Alias icons are now displayed from the original files. The little
alias arrow is gone from the menus (Yay!).
* Masking of numeric prefix is now optional. A new check box in
preferences lets you choose to hide numerix prefixes in file names.
* Automatic link with AliasKeys. Any file appearing both in AliasMenu
and AliasKeys will be displayed in the menu with the keyboard shortcut
defined in AliasKeys. Both products are designed to work separately,
nonetheless AliasKeys brings much more complete choice and ease to
define shortcuts.
