Huevos 1.1b2

Huevos 1.1b2 includes a very useful change—you can type a hotkey combination in any app and bring Huevos to the front instantly.

The default is Control-Escape, an easy left-handed gesture. You can change it via the Preferences window.

For me this new feature makes all the difference. Before this, Huevos was okay, somewhat useful, but this change puts it over the top.

(Note to Cocoa developers: the HotKeys API is a Carbon API, and I didn’t know how to access it from Cocoa—until I saw this helpful post from the Unsanity folks.)
