Safari 3.1.1 – Get it while it’s HOT!

Safari 3.1.1 released
EF724A03-C9D9-423F-95C2-0ECE5FB793AC.jpgSafari 3.1.1 is now available for both Windows and OS X. According to Apple, this update “includes improvements to stability, compatibility and security.”

On the security front, this security bulletin outlines the changes. It appears as if a vulnerability existed that could allow malicious sites to spoof URL headers or execute arbitrary code. There are two issues that specifically affect the Windows version of Safari, so users on both platforms should be sure to update.

Apple Updates: Notebooks, Keyboard, and iMac

Apple Releases Firmware Updates for Notebooks, Keyboard, and iMac

Picture 2.png

Apple released EFI Firmware Updates for the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and iMac today. The firmware update descriptions are predictably short:
This update fixes several issues to improve the stability of [MacBook Air. Macbook, MacBook Pro, iMac] computers.

Users should note that while the EFI Firmware upgrades are downloaded by Software Update, they are not installed automatically. Instead, the updater is downloaded to Applications/Utilities and must be manually launched in order to update the firmware. Updating the firmware requires the computer to be shut down and it is installed on the next boot. Follow the included instructions carefully.

Apple also issued an Aluminum Keyboard firmware update:
This firmware update addresses an issue with the aluminum Apple Keyboard and the aluminum Apple Wireless Keyboard where a key may repeat unexpectedly while typing.

The updates can be found in your Mac OS X software update.

Looking for an FTP that goes with the Flow?

Flow goes 1.0


Flow, a pleasant FTP client for the Mac, has definitely come a long way since we last took a look at it (so very long ago). Flow just hit version 1.0, and here are some of the new features:

  • QuickLook
  • Built-in editor
  • FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, .Mac, and local FTP
  • Droplets to upload quickly

Flow is designed specifically for Mac OS X Leopard (version 10.5). Flow costs just $29; you can also download a free 15-day trial version then buy a license. I am an adamant Transmit/Panic addict; however, Flow has such a great Aqua-licious UI and feature list, that I may make the jump (sorry Panic guys).
