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)
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.
