The Quicksilver multifunction launcher goes to version 2.0


The Quicksilver multifunction launcher has just been upgraded to version 2.0. This alternative to Spotlight and Alfred was launched in 2003 and is the victim of a fairly slow pace of development: the last version dates back to June 2020. Under these somewhat rustic appearances, the software is very practical for very quickly finding a file on his Mac or to perform more complex manipulations than what Apple’s native solution offers.

The new features of this version 2.0 are numerous: the app is now native for Apple Silicon chips and inherits several translations, including French. It is fully compatible with macOS Catalina and Big Sur and now offers a slightly more modern preferences and update menu. You can manage your reminders directly from Quicksilver, and a plug-in for Zoom is appearing.

Many fixes have been added: Quicksilver can now correctly launch AppleScript files, has better compatibility with different input methods and a prettier dark mode. The developers explain that they have moved from Python 2 to Python 3, and the app is now signed and certified. Quicksilver is free and open source software.
