Windows: ObjectDock, one of our favourite application docks, has unveiled a beta release that boasts Windows 8 support, among other new features. The latest version also cuts the price to $US5 if you want to try it.

ObjectDock 2.1 brings a few other new features that Windows 7 users will also enjoy. You can now add multiple docks to your desktop (or desktops), so you can have one on each display. You can also position the docks on any screen edge; the app has multi-monitor support, so the edge between displays works just fine. The new docks are animated, so a clock widget will keep accurate time. As well, you can drag and drop files onto their application shortcuts in any dock to launch the file with that program. Finally, ObjectDock is just as skinnable and customisable as before, and you can add skins and themes to personalise your docks.

The latest version is available now, but take note: 2.1 drops support for Windows XP and Vista, so if you’re running either, stick with the previous version. It’s $US5, but you can try it free for 30-days. Grab it at the link below.
