Version 1.1.1 Changes

  1. IMPORTANT: This update is primarily for compatibility fixes for Mac OS X 10.6. Due to these compatibility fixes, Mac OS X 10.4 is no longer supported; 10.5 or higher is the minimum OS requirement for AppTrap 1.1.1 and beyond.
  2. AppTrap prefpane is now 64 bit. No longer does System Preferences in Mac OS X 10.6 have to restart to load the AppTrap prefpane.
  3. Fixed a small typo in the "restarting AppTrap" dialog.
