Why do Sling never release details of what they have changed in each update?

3.3.20.475 appears identical to the previous version. The drop down menu limitations I mentioned earlier have not been addressed.

After putting a pdf file in the Trash, it will not let me Empty the Trash if PDFpen Pro is still open. A very annoying bug which has existed for far too long. Please fix it.

3.3.19.434 has been available for the last four weeks. Why has it taken MacUpdate so long to post this?

One request: the pull-down menu from which you choose the SB you wish to use has a limit of five SBs. Beyond that number you have to scroll down every time to choose No. 6 or below. AND, unlike the SlingCatcher, the order in which you have previously used them is not retained. So, in my case, the one I use most (which happens to be No. 6) cannot be chosen without additional scrolling.

Why the five SB limit? Why not implement the same procedure as for the SC, i.e. the list is regenerated each time after use to reflect the order that matches your usage.

I have never understood why it requires you to enter an admin password. I leave mine blank for general use, but opening OnyX, Maintenance and Deeper is impossible without logging out and re-booting the Mac as the Administrator with an assigned password. I should be able to use these apps without all this hassle. If I've designated myself to be "Admin" in the Users & Groups preferences, this should be sufficient "security". A poor oversight which mitigates against using these three apps.

With 2012.2 the ability to use MD and Dropbox Mac-to-Mac has been restored, albeit with a workaround. See http://help.infinitekind.com/kb/moneydance-2012/how-to-move-your-data-file-to-a-different-location-in-moneydance-2012

The other improvements to the app are relatively minor; the last two years' development have not really added a lot of additional value.

I still cannot download financial info from either of my Barclaycard Visa cards (US Airways and Virgin) directly into MD. I have to use individually imported QIF files - very annoying - but probably the fault of the Juniper folks who do the programming for Barclaycard.

FinderPop 2.4.6 is a tried and trusty global menu launcher which works well in OSX10.8.2. It does the same, only more for a couple of beers for Turly O'Connor.

Now that the Mountain Lion problem has been fixed, this is an excellent little program.

Version 3.3.18.355 is a HUGE step forward. I had despaired of the plugin ever being updated.

I use four Slingboxes in two different countries. Previously upon logging in I could not choose the Slingbox that I wanted. It would always automatically launch the one I last used. I had to cancel the launch before accessing a login page showing my four Slingboxes. Now all four can be found on the initial page in a drop-down menu and there is a proper Disconnect button to ensure that the connection is closed down properly.

The design of the new plug-in is far more appealing and much easier to manipulate. I just wish they'd add the DirecTV HR24 to their database; it is after all the most popular and widely used model . I guess that, now they are owned by EchoStar, they have a vested interested in skewing their product towards the Dish Network.

VC 1.0.2 would appear to be incompatible with Snow Leopard. Has anyone been able to make it work?
