TidBITS Watchlist: Notable Software Updates for 1 July 2013

by TidBITS Staff

Transmit 4.4 -- While not chock full of changes, Panic’s update to version 4.4 of its Transmit [1] file transfer program adds welcome improved support for Amazon S3-compatible servers via an editable Server field, which can now be modified for non-Amazon S3-compatible servers. The release also fixes a bug that prevented connections to some SharePoint servers via WebDAV. ($34 new from Panic and the Mac App Store [2], free update, 29.4 MB, release notes [3])

PopChar X 6.3 -- Ergonis Software has released PopChar X 6.3 [5], adding a clickable link to the Font Info view that opens the font’s storage location. If you have multiple versions of a font on your system, the font discovery utility will now tell you which version is currently in use. The update also improves the way PopChar X handles transient clipboard contents for better compatibility with clipboard utilities, enhances the reaction speed and reliability when available fonts are changed, and fixes a bug that blocked certain menus after clicking the menu bar icon. Ergonis has also made a few user interface tweaks, enabling you to dismiss the PopChar X window with the Escape key, ensuring the assigned hotkey correctly closes the window, and fixing the window position when the window header is offscreen after the app is first opened. (€29.99 new with a 25-percent discount for TidBITS members [6], free update, 3.7 MB, release notes [7])
