Mac OS X software updates for Dec. 31
Here are the latest updates for Mac OS X apps:
Trailrunner (www.trailrunnerx.com/), a Mac OS X solution for folks doing long distance sports, has been updated to version 3.7.709. The upgrade removes Wi-Fi syncing with iOS apps.
Moth Software (www.mothsoftware.com) has announced Mail Archiver X 220.127.116.11.566, an update to their app designed as a companion to the user's email application, allowing consolidation, archiving, cleaning, formatting, and permanent storage of emails. The buttons in the mailbox list are now disabled when no archive is open. Mail Archiver X no longer crashes after getting the number of mails for Apple Mail in some cases. The application no longer is started every minute when the option "Start missed" wasn't selected.
WeatherCat (http://trixology.com) weather station software, has been revved to version 1.1.2. It adds a DAYSAGO() function that can be used as a time period specifier with the STAT$ custom web tag. This can be used to query data from a given day in the past" for example DAYSAGO(2) is the day before yesterday. WeatherCat 1.1.2 also adds Internal Humidity as a trigger for custom alerts.
The ScreenSteps (www.bluemangolearning.com/screensteps/) screen capture utility is now up to version 2.9.6. The upgrade adds an option to create a new lesson when importing a lesson package that is a duplicate of an existing lesson. ScreenSteps also now makes more attempts to fetch the manual after an update so as to avoid breaking link between manual and server in the case of an empty response.
"A new book by the founder of Apple's first "in-house" design contractor, frog design, brings back memorable photos of many early Apple prototypes, including a (corded) phone with an LCD display that could also send email, a stylus-driven tablet, a dual-flatscreen workstation and a MacBook portable notebook -- all designed in the early 80s. German designer Hartmut Esslinger has included many prototypes in his latest book, Design Forward." -- "MacNN" (www.macnn.com)
