Transmit 4.2

Send Article to a Friend

Panic has released Transmit 4.2, which adds support for Notification Center in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and fixes some issues with graphics viewed on the MacBook Pro with Retina Display. On supported MacBook Pro models, Transmit now uses only the integrated graphics processor. The update also fixes an issue when dragging files from Panic’s Coda 2 Web development app, and it no longer autofills your email address for eList signup. ($34 new, free update, 27.8 MB, release notes)
