New from Panic is Transmit 4.1.6, a minor update to the company’s popular file-transfer software. The new release improves compatibility with Mac OS X Lion, adds support for Amazon Web Services’s new Tokyo region, and makes importing bookmarks from competing app Cyberduck easier. Panic has also fixed the way the app reads dates from SabreDAV servers and improved Unicode filename support with download syncing. ($34 new, free update, 22 MB, release notes)

In Snow Leopard, Option-clicking the Volume icon in the menu bar displays a list of sound input and output devices. Choose one to switch to it; it's much easier than using the Sound preference pane. Also, hold Shift and click the icon to set the system volume, which is separate from the general output volume.
