This is a maintenance update which fixes minor issues in conjunction with the first official version of OS X Yosemite:

Version 4.0 (Build 141016)

TinkerTool System 4 requires OS X 10.10 Yosemite or later. It is a paid upgrade for users who purchased a license for TinkerTool System Release 2 before July 1, 2013. TinkerTool System Release 2 remains available and can be used on the operating systems Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6), Mac OS X Lion (10.7), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8), and OS X Mavericks (10.9).

Version 4.0 (Build 141016) is a pilot release to give early adopters of OS X Yosemite the chance to use TinkerTool System already. Because Apple did not disclose all necessary documentation on Yosemite at this early time, this version only contains context help, but not the complete 180-page reference manual.

Version 4 focuses back on the operating system itself. All features related to third-party software or external applications have been removed. The only exception are functions for programs which had been part of OS X in the past, such as Adobe® Flash® Player or Xcode.

TinkerTool System 4 begins a new product line. The section above lists changes in comparison to TinkerTool System Release 2 version 3.4. For more information about the version history of TinkerTool System Release 2, please see the respective application of Release 2.
