Many users are aware of Apple Mail's message threading feature, which highlights related email messages within the Inbox. However, many people don't know how to view both sent and received messages within a thread at once. To do so, first enable Message Threading under Mail's Viewing Preferences. Then, Command-click both the mailbox containing your threaded messages, and your Sent box. Now you can view both sent and received messages within the thread simultaneously.

Apple says it provides support for the Thunderbolt Display and bug fixes for Thunderbolt devices. Also new is the Thunderbolt Display Firmware Update (923 KB), which improves the stability of the Thunderbolt Display.

The updates have not fixed all the problems with Thunderport on the new MacMinis. Most of the 11 we purchased still do not connect to the monitor in the thunderport when they wake from sleep. Monitors in the HDMI port work as expected.

This seems to have fixed the flicker on my 2011 MacBook Air internal display.
