PrefEdit is an application to manage nearly all aspects of the preference system contained in every Mac OS X installation. The program consists of three components which are tightly integrated with each other: A browser and editor for the Mac OS X preferences database, a browser and editor for Mac OS X property list files (plists), and a browser for preference manifest files. PrefEdit was the first preferences editor ever published for Mac OS X. With its long experience and maturity, it has become one of the most advanced preference management applications for Mac OS X available today.
What is new in this release:
This version allows former users of "PrefEdit App" to upgrade to the full version of PrefEdit at no cost. The presence of a licensed version of PrefEdit App is interpreted as registration for PrefEdit and unlocks the application. (This means former users of PrefEdit App must keep both applications on their systems. The App version must not be removed.) For further information, please see the corresponding chapter in the reference manual.
- A new preference setting was added to suppress the question to re-open a protected file with administrator privileges.
- The application now launches faster.
- When saving preference files manually or pressing the launch button of the document window, the application now uses more aggressive techniques to force particular versions of OS X to let the changes take effect immediately.
