File Cabinet Pro version 7.9.5 has been released for macOS.

What’s New?

-When viewing a long list of files in List view right-clicking on the background of List view was difficult. Now when you right-click on the status bar at the bottom of the window the context menu shows the same menu items displayed when you right-click on the background of the content view. This makes invoking the actions displayed in this context menu easier when lots of files are displayed.

Easily Bind an NSProgress Object to an NSProgressIndicator in Objective-C [Open Source]

In UIKit UIProgressView has an observedProgress property. If you set the observedProgress property on a UIProgressView, it will automatically update its appearance when you make changes to the NSProgress object. On macOS (in AppKit at least) NSProgressIndicator does not have an equivalent API. I created a simple category on NSProgressIndicator that adds an observedProgress property on NSProgressIndicator. The source code is available on Github here.
