New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

Airfoil 4.7.2

Send Article to a Friend

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. ($25 new with a 15-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 9.6 MB, release notes)
