Release notes are here:
We'll be very interested to see what you think about our latest
Some of the key points:
- memory usage should be down quite a bit
- general typing performance is hopefully better, please let us know
what you think (constructive criticism is always preferred... this is
a work in progress ;-) )
- several bugs were smashed, and hopefully no major ones were introduced
- Added some new flashy features (large type, improved accounts,
As you've probably noticed, the issues list has been updated as we've
been fixing them. For those of you who are interested in the code side
of things, the code repository is up to date with the latest code.
On behalf of the qsb team, thanks for all your support, and keep the
ideas coming. Hopefully you see that we are acting upon your comments,
and that they do make a difference.
Right now the UI for all of this isn't exactly clear ;-)
1) Open preferences
2) Go to the accounts pane
3) Click on "add"
4) Choose twitter
5) add your info
6) close preferences
7) bring up QSB
8) hit the spacebar, and then type what you want to tweet
9) choose the twitter action
Once you've got it set up it's easy to do. The UI will be improving...
we're still trying to figure out exactly how we want it to work.
For apps we search on the actual display name. Quicksilver's display
name isn't "Quicksilver". Look carefully at it and you will see that
it is a collection of weird and wonderful unicode characters to make
it look fancy. Try searching for "Qu" and then "Latin Small Letter
Dotless I" that you can generate by selecting codepoint 0131 of the
unicode character palette, and I think you will find it ;-)
Please add an issue to our list so that we can add a way of finding it.

Yes...this is temporary. We're still trying to figure out the optimal
amount of information to show "up front". Right now we've gone with a
very minimalist approach to say the least ;-) We'll fix this up.

Be sure to add issues on our issues list for the functions that you
use regularly. This helps us prioritize what we are going to work on.

I entered my Twitter account and then I tried executing the above and
I am not seeing a Twitter action. What am I missing?
Last when I purchased my Macbook I decided to stop using Quicksilver.
Since then I have gotten use to using Expose and switching between
it's spaces. I'm a web developer so I usually have about three to
four apps running at all times. Plus I have a little bit of computer
ADD and spontaneously surf the web every hour or so.
My question is do you guys use Expose & Spaces with Quicksilver or
QSB? If so do you have any tips or idea's on how to integrate OSX
10.5 features with QSB? I'm just curious what some of the other power
users are doing. Thanks
