Econ Technologies has released ChronoSync 4.3 and ChronoAgent 1.3, both major updates that feature extensive refinements to the link between the synchronization/backup application and its remote helper app. New features for ChronoSync include using SSL encryption when connecting to ChronoAgent 1.3, the capability to change the target folder/volume without losing state information from previous synchronizations, custom sync target names, and a function for restoring previously synchronized files. In addition to gaining SSL support over multiple platforms, ChronoAgent has been updated to better handle multiple, simultaneous connections. Additionally, both titles are updated with Spanish, Portuguese, and Brazilian Portuguese localizations. Full release notes for ChronoSync and ChronoAgent are available.

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.
