I tried Virtue first - no, it's not completely working at this point.
I don't imagine it would be incredibly hard to fix, I just haven't
had the time yet.
However, a word of warning - both of these utilities (and a bunch of
others) were using internal (private) APIs. Whilst I can't discuss
specifics due to my NDA, it would be prudent to say neither of these
utilities feature all of the visual niceties they possess under 10.3.
That's all I can really talk about, but I have contacted Rich Wareham
(the developer of DesktopManager) - yes, he is still out there - just
busy. He doesn't have a copy of Tiger, so he can't test DM himself
yet - I'd imagine when/if he gets Tiger everything will be fixed (He
was the one who originally decoded the CGSPrivate header I believe).
Now - back to topic, and where's beta 6? ;)
