Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

 
 

Camino 2.1.1

Send Article to a Friend

The Camino Project has released version 2.1.1 of its eponymous open-source Web browser, which includes a number of updates and fixes. The release includes an upgraded Mozilla Gecko rendering engine (1.9.2.27) and now blocks older versions of Adobe Flash Player 10 and 11 (previous to the currently available 10.3.183.15 and 11.1.102.62 releases, respectively) due to security issues. The update also includes several tweaks for using AppleScript scripts, correctly checks for the presence of a Java plug-in on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, and provides several other fixes. (Free, 18.5 MB, release notes)

> now blocks older versions of Adobe Flash Player 10 and 11 (10.3.183.15 and 11.1.102.62 and earlier, respectively)

I checked Adobe's site, but 10.3.183.15 and 11.1.102.62 seem to be the current versions. Are there newer versions somewhere (that would make those versions "older")? Or, does Camino 2.1.1 block the _current_ versions of Adobe Flash Player?
