Gratitude, Next version and Localize

Thanks for many response to us (xdd and taiyo) very much.

We feel sorry not to be able to respond all mail and comment.

We’ve caught many localized resources for Germany, French, Swedish, Italiano, Spanish, Russian, Portugal, Chinese and English;-) already. We’re gratitude for your work.

xdd and I started to discuss next version.

And we’ve decided to implement more easier way to localize into Folder/Zip.qlgenerator in next version.

##Of course, localize function is not the only new function in next release.

Your resources (and some bug fix reported) will be merged and solved in next version.

Again, thank you very much.

on Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard finder stopped to launch QuickLook plug-ins for folders except application bundle and some other special folders.

Folder.qlgenerator will not work if this limitation is by design.
