DaisyDisk 2 goes beta

It’s been a long time… How have you been?

Today we’re ready to introduce you to our newest creation, DaisyDisk 2 β:
http://cl.ly/3Wj7

What has changed since DaisyDisk 1.5.3? Almost everything!
In fact, we’ve build most parts of DaisyDisk 2 from scratch.

Well, really, take a look at this short whatsnew:

  • In-app file deletion
  • Brand new UI, created from scratch on Core Animation
  • Ability to scan several disks/folders at a time
  • Scan results are remembered while the application is running, can be “forgotten” to free memory
  • More informative disk descriptions
  • Redesigned disk usage gauge
  • Scanned folders are added to the list of sources
  • New logic for scanning as Administrator (was Super-User)
  • New About window informs you about recovered space totals, allows you to tweet your results
  • Updated Feedback window
  • Redesigned Crash Reporter (we hope you’ll never see it)
  • New error handling logic (yep, built-in dialogs suck)
  • Major under the hood changes and tons of tweaks you’ll unlikely ever need to know about

What’s known to be missing/broken:

  • We haven’t switched to a new registration system, but DaisyDisk 2 beta accepts DaisyDisk 1.x license keys
  • Localization is dropped (we’re not accepting localizations for some time, sorry…)
  • Help file is missing (we haven’t finished working on it yet)
  • A few more things…

The beta expires on December 31, 2010.

If you buy now, DaisyDisk 2.0 will be a free upgrade for you (you’ll need to get a new key online once the final version is released).

Upgrade policy for existing users remains unchanged:
$9,95 unless your license key has been issued before October 15, 2009 or after September 1, 2010. Otherwise free.

Enjoy…
