I've been using SIMBL with the TerminalColors plugin on Leopard, after upgrading to Snow Leopard it won't work.

Someone has posted a modified plugin but this doesn't appear to work for me, its almost as if SIMBL itself isn't being loaded with my Terminal.app even with it set to 32-Bit mode.

Anyone one know how I can check if the InputManager is even being loaded?

Thanks Rob

SIMBL uses the InputManagers API. Apple had made it clear that ability to modify apps by patching InputManagers would not be supported in Leopard and would likely break in future versions of OSX. And that future is here now.

According to the developer, SIMBL is being reworked as a Framework. While it might be able to support its functionality in the future, it might just lock up all your applications if it mis-fired.
