Ambrosia Software has released Snapz Pro X 2.3.1, an update to the screenshot utility near and dear to the hearts of authors everywhere. Most notably, the update provides necessary compatibility with Mac OS X Lion (earlier versions didn’t work well in Lion), but there are also improvements to H.264 color management and handling of mono audio devices, along with a few other minor bug fixes.

Open Links from Mail in the Background
Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.
