type this into terminal:

defaults write use-new-list-stack -boolean yes; killall Dock

And replace yes with no to revert back the original setting.

That is a small picture I found on the net but it shows this new way well. What it doe sis makes the folder in a dock content have much larger icons and a scoll bar is added to move up and down folders with lots of stuff in them. And in this view with the little dock folder bubble open oress up and down and you can select things thay way too.

I think this new way is really interesting. I like it. But this new way only affects/modifies list view. Fan and grid views remain the same.

2. When navigating a Grid stack using the keyboard, the selected item is highlighted. Using the Terminal commands below, the highlight also appears when you mouseover an item in the stack.

defaults write mouse-over-hilite-stack -boolean yes; killall Dock
Replace yes with no to remove this change.
That is really nice too with this new view I mentioned above.
