View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

Apple has released Server Admin Tools 10.7.5, which includes updates to its set of administration applications for use with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Server. In particular, the Server Admin and System Image Utility tools add NetBoot/NetInstall model filters for MacBook Pro and MacBook Air (Mid 2012) models. Additionally, the System Image Utility improves reliability of booting from NetRestore images, and the Workgroup Manager correctly sets the password expiration date for Open Directory users and shows the names of members of Active Directory groups.
