- Easily copy/paste file paths.
- Easily access hidden files and folders.
- Fast filesystem navigation through path completion and suggestion popups.
- Search Mode: Enter filenames to search the current directory. Way more reliable than Finders "find as you type".
- Wildcard support: Type *.pdf to select all pdf files in the current folder.
- Open terminal in current directory by keypress.
- No Bloatware: Doesn't get in your way until you activate it, and stays in background if you don't.
- A word of warning: I explicitly tag this app Beta. Most stuff is working, but use it at your own risk and PLEASE REPORT BUGS!

You have to stop FinderPath from Activity Monitor to be able to replace FinderPath.app in /Applications. This is the last time you will have to do that, we are using Sparkle from now on.
- Sparkle updater integration
- Preference & About windows (right click on the file/directory icon to show menu, or double click FinderPath.app while running)
- New Default Hotkey: Command+G
- Fix: Activation did't work after finder restart
- Fix: Command+H now goes to the home folder instead of hiding FinderPath
- Fix: when typing a file path (not directory), reveal it instead of opening
- Fix: Make click region (Finder's titlebar item) a little wider
- Some minor fixes
April 19, 2010
This is the first Release of FinderPath. Expect some bugs and annoyances. Note that this is a early beta release after one day of coding. There is no gui/preference pane yet.
Use at your own risk!
