Version 2.4 | Release Date: 2009-06-28 | Download
  • added the option to have the mouse center on screen before every trampoline opens, not just the main trampoline.
  • filtering with capital letters will cause a strong filter search (letters must be consecutive) instead of the weak search we use now

  • added an option to set the Trampoline preferences icon off center so the bottom spot can be used by one of your tools

  • You can now control the number of items in each trampoline with a slider, not a stepper as before.

    • Fixed an issue with Time machine where the wrong window would appear if Time machine were invoked from certain applications using Trampoline.
    • Fixed a longstanding bug where the last application would not always come back to the front after Trampoline closed.
    • Some behind-the-scenes improvements.

    Version 2.3 | Release Date: 2007-10-21 | Download
    • Added an option to play a sound whenever the mouse moves over a new icon
    • drag a file over a running applications icon and hold it for 3 seconds and that application will come to the front

    • eliminated an optimization introduced in version 2.2.1 that was causing a crash on PowerMac G5s and Mac Pros among other macs.
    Version 2.2.1 | Release Date: 2007-09-23 | Download
    • More improvement to the way Trampoline handles itself near the edge of the screen:
      • the cursor no longer needs to move outside the close button to move the trampoline, it just needs to move a few pixels
      • changed the rate at which the trampoline slides when coming onto the screen
      • After the trampoline moves itself onto the screen in one direction, it will not move again unless the cursor goes back over the close button - avoids times when the trampoline jumps around surprisingly
    • improved loading of the add special menu in the items tab
    • some simple optimizations and behind-the-scenes improvements
    • By default, trampoline no longer grows to fit the screen, and its default size is slightly larger. These will only affect new users, and of course can be changed in the preferences
    Version 2.2 | Release Date: 2007-08-20 | Download
    • Trampoline now makes adding COCOAapp’s Dockables much easier, meaning that common tasks like restarting, emptying the trash, or starting a screensaver can be accessed in Trampoline with just one click.
      • The first time Trampoline is run, it will add the Dockables folder to the trampoline if it exists
      • The Dockables folder has been added to the “Add Special” menu in the Items preferences, making Dockables very easy to add to the Trampoline.
    • When an item is not visible on the screen, Trampoline now draws a smaller icon of that item close to the close button, making it easier to find objects that are off screen.
    • added an option to move the mouse to the center of the screen when the Trampoline appears, thus ensuring that the Trampoline always appears centered on the screen.
    • improved resizing of Preferences dialog tabs
    • The items table in the preferences window now supports the delete key.
    • more robust handling of web location files
    • fixed a potential crashing bug in the “Add Special” menu.

    • Added a setting to show a files label color.
    • The "Show In Finder" and "Get Info" menu items (and their as- sociated key commands) will now use Path Finder if Path Finder is running and "Enable Reveal in Path Finder for third party applica- tions" is turned on in Path Finder's preferences.
    • added the ability to relaunch a running application either by pressing the 'l' key or by choosing the item from a contextual menu. (timeout is 2 minutes)
    • added a "Force Quit" menu item to the contextual menu of run- ning applications.
    • The "Add Special" popup button in the Items Preference now includes a submenu for the Applications folder, making it very easy to add most applications from within the Items Preferences.

    • updated background appearance by adding a glasslike reflection, and changed the color cast of the bezel buttons to suit.

    • fixed an obscure memory bug
    • Updated the help menu items to include old-jewel.com rather than the old oldjewelsoftware.com addresses.

    Version 2.0.3 | Release Date: 2007-04-17 | Download

    Improved the way Trampoline behaves when it appears partially offscreen. Now, moving your mouse in the direction of an icon off screen will make that icon come towards the mouse. This way, you move your mouse in the same way whether the icon appears on the screen or off it.

    Version 2.0.2 | Release Date: 2007-03-06 | Download

    - Fixed a memory leak that could gradually cause Trampoline to use large amounts of memory.
    - Made a minor change to the way Trampoline draws icons that could speed up drawing.

    Version 2.0.1 | Release Date: 2007-03-03 | Download

    - Dragging files onto icons in the Trampoline was accidentally turned off. It's back on now.
    - Pressing the 'r' key while hovering over an icon will now show it in the Finder. This maps better with the traditional command-R key combination that can be found in many Apple applications.
    - If you had Bullseye installed before, loading Trampoline for the first time will now load your old files from Bullseye, rather than reloading from the Dock.
    - Edited and added to the Trampoline help file.
