Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly

This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.

The update also adds support for Reduced Redundancy Storage at Amazon S3, custom metadata attributes for S3 and Rackspace Cloud Files, keyboard-interactive authentication using SecureID, the capability to configure access logs for CloudFront streaming distributions, and Romanian and Slovenian localizations.
