Default Dapplegrey v2.3.3 released

Dapplegrey, the MacOSX DOSbox frontend that asks "What does white horse in jam glass?" has been updated. There is no list of what is new this time.

You can get it over on Dapplegrey's website, or right here on ZD.

I swear to you. Check the app's homepage. I was never quite able to figure it out either.

Where comes the name Dapplegrey from?

In the canteen of their firm the colleagues are taking their lunch.
A foreign colleague asks his german one:
„What is Schimmel?"
The german colleague replies: "A white horse, we call it Schimmel."
The foreign asks back: „What does white horse in jam glass?"
Hmmm...
I don't know much German, but I'm guessing a better translation to English might have been:

Quote:
The name Dapplegrey is a literal translation of the German word Apfelschimmel; the original German word can refer to either a white horse or fermented apple jam.

...

Where does the name Dapplegrey come from?

In the cafeteria of a firm, some colleagues are having their lunch.
A foreign colleague asks a German one:
"What's a schimmel?"
The German colleague replies: "A white horse, we call it schimmel."
The foreign one (looking down the table at a label) asks back: "What would a white horse be doing in a jam jar?"

I admit I can't be sure, but it's my best guess, anyway. =P
