DaisyDisk 2.0.7 is out

Hooray. We’ve just released DaisyDisk 2.0.7.

The list of changes is quite promising:

  • Starred (favorite) folders
  • Hidden disk space detector (stand-alone version only), a nice complement to “scan as administrator”
  • Brand new logic for scanning multiple volumes simultaneously (reduces hardware load, increases scan speed)
  • Volumes of the same disk are now visually grouped together
  • Improved disk/volume descriptions
  • Eject volumes, not disks
  • Fixed UI lag on directories with tens of thousand files
  • 3-finger swipe up/down gesture for switching between disks/map
  • For terabyte disks, free and used space is displayed in GB
  • Updated list of locations that cannot be deleted
  • Updated help file
  • Lots of smaller tweaks and fixes

Not bad for a minor release :)

The App Store version has been submitted to Apple for approval and should be available… well, when Apple decides to approve it :)

For those curious: yes, DaisyDisk 2.0.7 works on Lion, but once 10.7 goes final, we’ll make an update to ensure full compatibility.

What’s next?
First of all, we’re re-opening the localization program, so if you want to see DaisyDisk on your own language and wish to contribute — drop us a line.
The next minor release would be dedicated to Lion compatibility. We’re also thinking about dropping support for PPC/10.5 in favor of providing better experience for Lion (and Snow Leopard) users.

Stay tuned.
Yours truly, DaisyDisk Team.
