Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.

Coda 2.0.1

Send Article to a Friend

Panic has released Coda 2.0.1, a fix-fest of a follow-up to its recent major upgrade of the Web site development tool. Amongst the bevy of fixes, the update improves reliability of AirPreview and iCloud syncing (the latter available only in the version purchased from the Mac App Store), disables a “mysterious” iCloud panel in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, catches external CSS changes more reliably in Web preview, and improves code validation when code is collapsed. Additionally, the release improves overall stability under 10.6 Snow Leopard, adds Japanese localization, opens files in the active tab/split via keyboard shortcut (Option-Return), and improves autocompletion for HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP. For a complete rundown of fixes, be sure to peruse the release notes. ($99 new, $75 update, 46.1 MB)
