Like the recently released Audio Hijack Pro 2.10.5, Rogue Amoeba’s Airfoil 4.7.2 has been updated to capture audio from Safari, QuickTime Player, FaceTime, and Messages on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion without use of the Instant On component. The update also fixes an issue where volume control wasn’t working for some third-party AirPlay hardware, corrects the Enter Full Screen menu item in the Airfoil Video Player to work properly on 10.7 Lion, and provides several fixes for the MacBook Pro with Retina Display (such as ensuring Netflix’s full-screen mode works and correcting the Welcome window size). Additionally, the release prevents applications from appearing twice in the Source list, and it is now compatible with Gatekeeper.

Wake On Demand in Snow Leopard
Putting your Mac to sleep saves power, but it also disrupts using your Mac as a file server, among other purposes. Wake on Demand in Snow Leopard works in conjunction with an Apple base station to continue announcing Bonjour services that the sleeping computer offers.
While the requirements for this feature are complex, eligible users can toggle this feature in the Energy Saver preference pane. It's labeled Wake on Network Access for computers that can be roused either via Wi-Fi or Ethernet; Wake on Ethernet Network Access or Wake on AirPort Network Access for wired- or wireless-only machines, respectively. Uncheck the box to disable this feature.
