BetterZip Quick Look Generator 1.2

I have just released a new version of the BetterZip Quick Look Generator. It’s loooong overdue, but I was very busy with other projects which shall remain unnamed for the moment.

The new version fixes a few problems with previous versions, e.g., the latest WebKit (i.e., Safari 5) led to the BetterZip QL generator printing the header over the archive contents. Nasty. Certain tar archives couldn’t be viewed anymore and a few other smaller problems.

I have also found a way to store your settings without editing a configuration file by hand, like it was necessary in previous versions. To achieve this, I have created a small program packaged with the QL generator, that’s called from the QL panel itself. So, don’t get nervous, if you click “Save as default” and Mac OS X asks, whether you really wish to start an external program. It will do this only once and all this little helper does is saving your settings to a preferences file (com.macitbetter.betterzip.quicklookgenerator.plist) in your preferences folder.
