I couldn't open cDock. When I typed "carutil disable" into Terminal in accordance with the instructions, I was told that that code couldn't be found, or something to that effect.

I hope you read this, Mike. I used the link on the SIMBL page to get your address emailed to me. When I replied it was returned as a delivery failure. Ever wonder why you don't get any SIMBL email? So here's my message: Just a tip: You should include a text file with downloads detailing where to install the plugin. And put that in the description on MacUpdate. Not everyone has a SIMBL folder to start with. I do but couldn't remember where it was (Spotlight's too stupid to find it, but EasyFind could have). Although I'd read something about placing it in the root library for sandboxed apps, I don't have a SIMBL folder there, mine is only in the user library. I was hesitant to install it on my fresh install of Yosemite, but haven't encountered any issues yet from running cDock. I just placed SafariStand in there, so I'll see how it goes.

It's sad to see such a great program/utility die. Been hoping for Lion support forever. I'd pick it up if I was any good with programming. Someone should re-invigorate it.

SIMBL is not compatible with Lion, no matter what anyone says. It was installed on 7 of my family's and 11 of my colleagues' Lion Macs plus mine, and all 19 suffered multiple SIMBL crashes every single day until we were forced to trash it in the last couple of weeks. Since he hasn't updated it in nearly a year nor responded to ANY of the panicked queries here or anywhere else, clearly Mike Solomon has abandoned SIMBL — and his implicit promise to all the developers whose apps rely on it. Oh, and millions of us users, too.

I've been using SIMBL on my Lion (10.7.2) iMac and MacBook since June and in Snow Leopard for a long time before that, and it was stable at first. But now SIMBL crashes several times every day, and I can't figure out what the trigger is — sometimes it crashes when a SIMBL-reliant app is running, but more often it happens when I startup a nonSIMBL-reliant app or use one that's been running for a while. I don't think the cause is a conflict with other software because my Macs are set up very differently, are used for different purposes, and have very different apps installed. I hope the dev figures it out and releases a fix soon because I'm on the verge of dumping SIMBL and all the lovely apps that rely on it, which would be a shame.

I'm thinking of sending the developer money for a down load if that is the problem as he earlier stated.

Although a "hack" its still quite stable. If you have instability issues then talk to the developer of the extensions you are using not complain about this. Without this I wouldn't have things like GreaseKit and Totalfinder, key parts of my daily use of my mac.

Heads-up: Although Mike Solomon's website clearly shows version SIMBL 0.9.8c.zip (as of the date of this post), if you download the .zip and expand you will be treated to version 0.9.8.d.

SIMBL 0.9.8 is now at 0.9.8c. The first release was 0.9.8a. This version is rapidly developing so keep an eye out for the latest, even if it means heading over to Mike Solomon's website.

Has anyone noticed that with this SIMBL update, PithHelmet (3.0b6) seems to interfere with The Daily Show and The Colbert Report's streaming episodes? I have to "Reload Unfiltered" to get the videos to load/play. With SIMBL 0.9.7a this wasn't the case.

Though I use (and regularly update) both Safari Cookies and AdBlock I've never had a crash. In fact I've never had a crash when adding *any* Safari plugin or extension. I don't know what the problem is for the rest of you but I doubt it's SIMBL.

No problems here using it with Safari Plugins Adblocker and Coockies. I dont know if both install have newest SIMBL - i updated SIMBL by the newest SIMBL update 0.9.8. PS: Even its an hack, it makes much, much much less trouble than Application Enhancer hack.
