roobasoft releases rooSwitch 1.1 now with faster switching, per application

roobasoft has released rooSwitch 1.1, an update to its profile switching application. rooSwitch 1.1 adds faster switching, per application preferences and adds support for AppleScript and Automator.

rooSwitch allows you to manage multiple profiles for almost any applications data. Simply drop the application on rooSwitch and you’re in business. rooSwitch was designed for developers that want to manage test data sets as well as their real data, but all users are finding different usages for rooSwitch. Create different profiles for at work and at home or use the duplicate feature to backup an applications data before trying a new version.

New for 1.1 is rooSwitch’s ability to move files instead of copying them. Moving a file requires almost no time compared to copying (this feature requires the .rooSwitch file and the destination files reside on the same disk and partition). Also in 1.1 is per application preferences. Want to move the files for Mail but copy your NetNewsWire data? Per application preferences make this possible. Finally, 1.1 adds much needed support for AppleScript and an Automator action that will allow for easy switching of one or multiple applications.

rooSwitch 1.1 requires a Mac with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and is available as a Universal Binary. It is a free upgrade for existing users. New licenses can be purchased for $14.95. An unrestricted 30 day trial of rooSwitch can be downloaded from
