View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

iWork 9.1

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released iWork 9.1, a relatively small but significant update that brings Lion compatibility to its office suite. All iWork apps have been updated to support several major Lion features, including full-screen mode, Resume, Auto Save, and Versions (see “Apple Reveals More about Mac OS X Lion,” 24 February 2011). Rounding out the new release are two new builds for Keynote presentations, general improvements to the suite’s compatibility with Microsoft Office, and security fixes to handle maliciously constructed Excel and Word files. iWork 9.1 is available as a free update through Software Update, but updates to Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are also available through the Mac App Store. (Free update, 90.2 MB)

As a writer of academic works I have grown to love Pages for the brilliant way it implements endnote bibliographies, so it was disturbing on running this update to find that this feature no longer seems to work. Maybe I've become stupid, but I hope it is just a temporary glitch. In the meantime I reverted to the earlier version. If anyone finds I am wrong, or finds a solution I'd love to hear about it.

That is troubling - I've not used that feature, so I can't tell if something has changed there, but I'd encourage you to ask on the Pages forum on Apple's site.

I guess this means that Apple is not going to come out with an iWorks 11.

I don't think any such conclusion can be drawn - this was a small update to bring Lion features to iWork '09. I would be very surprised if iWork didn't receive a major update at some point, probably relatively soon.
