Ian Page has released Mactracker 7.0, the popular encyclopedia of Apple products. It has been updated with Apple’s operating system and hardware releases from the last couple of months, including iOS 6, the iPhone 5, iPad mini, fourth-generation iPad, 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, and the latest iPod nano and iPod touch models. The release also adds available marketing taglines for recent hardware models, adds a separate entry for SIM information to iPad and iPhone models, and updates support status for the latest Vintage and Obsolete products. The Mactracker app is now built using a Cocoa framework, requires OS X 10.7 Lion or later, and is optimized for Retina displays. (Free, 30.1 MB, release notes)
Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.

When version 7.0 was released earlier this month, OS X Lion was set as the minimum requirement. My intent was to support Snow Leopard, however I encountered some stability issues when I moved to the Cocoa framework. Moving from a Carbon base was necessary for Retina display support. I chose to release version 7 with the Lion requirement while I worked to resolve the stability issues with Snow Leopard.
I am pleased to say that, in addition to featuring the latest iMacs, version 7.0.1 restores Snow Leopard support. Thank you for your patience.
