    I didn't know DockExtender had issues on Tiger when I installed it. And so far I haven't seen any issues in the [ast few months.

    Maybe I'm not using any of the features that are effected by Tiger?

    I basically only use the Dock Menu feature. I have the following trypes of menu items:
    • Applications
    • Documents (like PDFs for example)
    • Directories
    • AppleScript menu items
    • Sunmenus
    So depending on what you want it for, it might still work.

    No, I don't think there are. I am actually the author of one of those old apps (MultiDockX if you're interested), and the way they all work (to the best of my knowledge) is shuffling the preferences files and then restarting the Dock daemon. Well in Tiger the Dock daemon is tied to Dashboard, so that reloading the dock (i.e. "switching" the dock) also kills Dashboard.

    Until Apple lets developers under the hood or some smart hacker figures out how to manipulate the dock programmatically, none of those apps will work in Tiger. That kind of hacking is beyond me. There are apps that completely replace the Dock, however...I think one is called DockFun but I might be wrong.
