Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.

Mailplane 2.5.1

Send Article to a Friend

We accidentally missed the release of Uncomplex’s Mailplane 2.5 a few weeks ago, which gives the Gmail-specific email client support for full-screen mode in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, along with support for the new Preview Pane feature from Gmail Labs. Otherwise, the Mailplane 2.5 release fixed bugs relating to Boomerang and Rapportive, addressed some Lion-specific bugs, and automatically adds the Evernote toolbar button when the Evernote application is installed. The just-released Mailplane 2.5.1 adds a Window > Enter Full Screen menu item and keyboard shortcut for Lion users, removes the conflicting keyboard shortcut from Mail > Forward, and fixes some problems with sending messages, uploading attachments, and two-finger swipes in Lion. ($24.95 new, free update, 22.5 MB)
