Subject: [*] DragThing 4.5

DragThing is the original dock designed to tidy up your Macintosh desktop.
Simply drag an application from the Finder onto an empty square in a dock
and then drag documents onto it as normal. Click a docked application to
launch it or bring it to the front.

In addition, the docks can contain files, folders, disks and servers, and
there are also options to display the currently running processes, and all
mounted disks, in special docks. On Mac OS X, you can even show the Trash on
the Finder Desktop again.

This is a major release, with many new features including:

* You can now turn docks into sliding drawers that work like pop-up
windows from Mac OS 9.
* Improved support for Mac OS X "Jaguar".
* More cool translucency effects.
* Added an option to highlight Classic applications in docks.
* Added support for Mac OS X applications with "????" creator codes.
* Added a "Revert" command for the preferences file in case of accidents.
* Folder contextual menus can go more than five levels deep on Jaguar.
* Added new hot keys to control individual docks.
* Added support for custom sounds on Mac OS X.
* Added an option to sort the Disk Dock into the same order as the Desktop.
* Improved performance.

DragThing is designed for Mac OS X, but still works well on Mac OS 9.

This is a free upgrade for existing registered users of DragThing 4,
$10 for registered users of previous versions, and $25 for new users.
Five and ten-packs of licenses cost $99 and $149 respectively, and
competitive upgrades are also available from other utilities for $19.

Subject: [*] MacIago X 3.5


*The Japanese, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Catalan,
and English versions are included in the single application package.

MacIago is a strategic computer game based on the Othello/Reversi board
game and inspired on the 1984 mac game "Iago" made by David Reed (hence
the similar name).

MacIago 3 requires Mac OS X to run, if you want to play on Mac OS 9 or
lower then you can use MacIago 2.5. This game is freeware.

How to play

The game is played with a board on which you have to enclose the
opponent pieces between your own. All the enclosed pieces will be
converted to your own in the eight possible directions. Each move must
result in at least one conversion. When such move is not possible the
turn is forfeited. The game ends when none of the players is able to
make a move. The player with the most pieces at the end of the game
wins.

Features

- Version 3 has been completely rewritten for Mac OS X using the Cocoa
frameworks. Compared to the previous version it has improved graphics,
better artificial intelligence, a revamped user interface, and the
ability to show available moves.
- Version 3.5 introduces appearance plugins, a smarter and faster
artificial intelligence and a resizable window.

Subject: [*] Troi Activator Plug-in 1.3 for FileMaker Pro


Troi Activator Plug-in is a very powerful tool for triggering scripts
across the network, even over the Internet. All from within FileMaker
you can:

* trigger a FileMaker script on a different client computer
* trigger a FileMaker script over the Internet
* use the built-in security to prevent unauthorized triggering
* send a number (e.g. a record ID) and a long text with the trigger
* start and stop listening for remote trigger messages with one script step

Apart from remote triggering you can also trigger scripts on the same computer:
* trigger a script on a specified date and time
* schedule events which trigger any script you want
* trigger a script after exiting a field
* validate fields with a custom script suited to your specific
validation needs
* put the computer to sleep till it needs to be activated again (Mac only).

New Features

Troi Activator Plug-in 1.3 (release date July 17th, 2001) adds these
new functions and features:

* Tested with FileMaker 5.5 and made compatible for Mac OS X. The
Mac OS version of the plug-in is now a so called 'Super Fat' plug-in
that will run native on Mac OS 8, 9 and on Mac OS X.
* You can now schedule an event without parameters.
* Added support for runtimes (including kiosk mode) created with
FileMaker Developer 5 for Windows and FileMaker Developer Edition 4.0
for Windows.
* Added support for FileMaker Pro 4.0 for Windows and FileMaker Pro
4.1 for Windows.

Suggested Uses

The Activator allows you to:
* create a real-time appointment solution, where you can notify a
colleague (on a different computer) of changes in his/her appointments
* notify a user that a shared document can be used
* start processing scientific data on a lab computer (see our Serial
Plug-in for connecting FileMaker to serial devices:
)
* get someone out of a record, so that it is no longer locked
* schedule processing of incoming email and put the computer to
sleep the rest of the time, saving energy

Subject: [*] Troi ClipSave Plug-in 1.1 for FileMaker Pro


Troi ClipSave Plug-in (release date June 25th, 2002) can save and
restore the clipboard in 2 simple steps.
ClipSave is mainly intended for developers of FileMaker databases
wanting to use ScriptMaker steps that change the clipboard, like for
example the "Copy All Records step". ClipSave makes it possible to
use those steps
without the end user knowing the clipboard was temporarily changed.

Features
- Cross platform (Mac OS, Mac OS X and Windows95/98/Me and NT/2000/XP)
- Saves the complete clipboard (including multiple items on the clipboard)
- Easy to implement

Suggested use
The FileMaker Scripting language has some very useful steps for
developers that change the clipboard. The ClipSave plug-in can help
with the following ScriptMaker steps:
- Copy Record
- Copy All Records
- Copy (of a Page in Preview mode)
- Copy (of a field, with font and style preserved)
- External function steps from plug-ins that use the clipboard (like
for example our Grabber plug-in)

Troi ClipSave Plug-in is shareware and costs US$ 10 per user.
Developer licenses and multi-user discounts are available.

System requirements

Any Mac or Windows machine that runs FileMaker Pro 4 or later. The
plug-in is available for Mac OS, Mac OS X and Windows95/98/ME and
NT/2000/XP.
