Thanks for your e-mails guys! Thanks for suggestions and support! Few new features has been implemented in this version, see them here.
Essentials is getting more useful and even more is saving your time and nerves. We are focusing on UX on this one and trying to combine it with beautiful OS X Lion so Essentials would feel like its extended arm. For example, why would you need to click twice to open item? You don't. Single-tap or click will do now. Some of you asked us to add preference to disable/enable Dock and menubar icons, and we did it. Just don't forget what is your hotkey combo. You can cycle...
We support independence. In any way. We are grateful to be born as free citizens. We are grateful that we can acknowledge injustice done to people and Earth in any way. Earthlings can be very scary. We are grateful that we can recognize slavery in any form. We are grateful that we share paths with some extraordinary men and women. We are grateful for knowledge and for chance of understanding it. We celebrate that. Every day. On 4th and 5th of July (in case you miss it :)) we offer our little token of appreciation to our fellow citizens by making Essentials free. We think that monetary system needs...
Latest Essentials update is available on the Mac App Store. For a full list of changes take a look here.
This update took almost a month from submission to approval in the App Store. We've had 1 rejection in the process, as Apple's review team found a bug we somehow missed. After fix and another submission, and some more waiting, release is finally in your hands ;)
We waited App Store to approve it for a long, long week. But everything went well after little intervention. We were worried because app was "in review" status for a week, so this morning we sent short and kind e-mail to review team with question is there a problem. It took them a day and here it is; little polished and somewhat more slick. But wait for that "1", it will come closer to its friend from the other side... and that will be sooo good. Thanks to macrumors.com and its magnificent community for every comment and support!
This is NOT April Fools joke! Please, we are serious here... We are happy to announce birthday of habitatus and to celebrate with all of you, we are offering Essentials in half the price from today. This is limited time offer only. Hope to spike up your productivity with this great little app, and hope you like it as we do. Although 1.01 version is still in review, we are already few milestones away in preparing 1.1 version with some new features that we planned and few that were requested by our users.
Even if we didn't start with a joke, you can express a moderate smile on this one... There...
Many thanks to everybody for your comments and e-mails, support and interest! We filed all requests, some are in working progress as we speak.
New version was just submitted with few tweaks:

Improved menu bar icon
Fixed bug with items repositioning when items grid has beed scrolled
Fixed bug with running command items by double clicking or choosing "Run command" from right click menu
From today you can find useful Terminal command help page that we added on our website.
This is rather satisfying moment for us: we are glad to announce that today our app Essentials for Mac is released and live at the App Store. Its birth is entirely invoked because of pure necessity of our team. How to fight few Spaces with a whole a lot of the windows, few projects at the same time, different client strategy and few external discs and server? How to fight the urge to have dock full to the bone and desktop packed to its limits?! Not to mention constantly getting aggravated by constant file and document searching and finding a way through numerous folders and e-mail messages. It was hard...
One of a very few things that bug me about Panic's Coda code editor is not being able to switch keyboard focus between editor pane and file list pane. It's especially required when editing files directly on ftp server, where "Open quickly" menu command doesn't work.
Using the Coda's Objective-C API I managed to overcome described problem by making a simple plugin that does just one thing: switches keyboard focus between two panes. You can find plugin, and it's source code, below. Feel free to do anything you want with it.
Tweetology is the name of group of ideas and thoughts about what makes a good iPhone Twitter client. These ideas and thoughts are slowly being integrated and implemented into what will become a brand new iPhone twitter client (as if that wasn't obvious).
Application is progressing slowly, but steady. Lack of time for doing the actual programming is compensated with having more time to think through the problems and come up with more general and optimized solutions to those problems. Currently, my focus is slowly shifting toward refining and optimizing the user experience and usage patterns and flows.
