ß69 Release: Quicksilver 1.0 draws nearer

It’s here, something you’ve all been waiting for!

After much hard and painstaking work, we’ve finally brought Quicksilver kicking and screaming into the world of Mountains and Lions. This release of Quicksilver is perhaps one of the biggest in its history. It’s certainly the biggest release for everyone on the current development team.

Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be making blog posts and tweets on everything that’s gone on under the hood with this version of Quicksilver… but, in order to whet your appetite, here’s a quick rundown of the major changes:

  • Official support for Mountain Lion - Quicksilver is now code-signed to work with Mountain Lion’s Gatekeeper, and has been extensively tested with Apple’s latest operating system.
  • 64 bit code - Quicksilver is now a 64 bit application, meaning it should run faster, and with fewer hiccups.
  • Localisations, localizations, localización - There’s now full localisation support built into Quicksilver. We are working hard on paving the way for volunteers from across the globe to translate all parts of Quicksilver into their own language. On top of this, Quicksilver now supports many more keyboard layouts, and all internal shortcuts are keyboard independent.
  • Fixes galore - In terms of fixes, there’s no doubt that ß69 has the most out of any release we’ve ever seen. This line (from the changelog) is only half the story…

Stay tuned for some more in-depth posts on what’s been going on behind the scenes, and what more you can expect. Now that a 64 bit Quicksilver has been released to the world, expect Quicksilver v1.0 to be just around the corner…
