Panic has released Transmit 4.3.3, another maintenance release for the file transfer program. This version fixes crashes associated with dragging remote files from Panic’s Coda Web site development tool and with importing FileZilla favorites. For those running Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard, Transmit 4.3 improves the placement of window animation, and the dock icon is “no longer comically small.” The update also improves reliability with the Favorites Sync when merging changes from the cloud, provides connectivity to more key-authorized favorites, and ensures that sorting of favorites doesn’t favor capitalized items over non-capitalized ones.

Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.
