Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

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)
