Preparing for the release of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, Smile has released PDFpen 5.7.1 and PDFpenPro 5.7.1, both of which are updated with the Smile developer ID that is used by Mountain Lion’s Gatekeeper security feature (see “Gatekeeper Slams the Door on Mac Malware Epidemics,” 16 February 2012). The updates to the PDF manipulation tools also fix a gradual shift in color when using comments and an issue with the text tool when object stroke is set to none. A quick 5.7.2 release fixes a potential issue with saving, primarily on 10.6 Snow Leopard, and another issue with localization of page numbering.

Track Bandwidth Use with VirusBarrier X6
If you have monthly bandwidth limits, it's useful to know how much data you have used so far to avoid overage charges or being shut off by your ISP. But how do you determine how much data your Mac has transferred? Open VirusBarrier X6's Traffic window to see both current and cumulative traffic, and you can also create warnings when your data usage - incoming, outgoing, or both - exceeds an amount you specify.
