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.)

Panic has released Transmit 4.3.4, a small maintenance release that should bring some joy to those running Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. The update squashes a bug where Transmit’s user interface wouldn’t respond when attempting to synchronize folders on Snow Leopard. In addition, the file transfer program fixes a connection failure for some servers when connecting to FTP via TLS/SSL, puts paid to crashes that occurred when minimizing the app during a transfer and when downloading server favicons for favorites, and fixes a problem with Transmit Disk auto-updating. ($34 new, free update, 29.4 MB, release notes)
