Mark Allan has updated the free ClamXav virus scanner to version 2.5 with improved stability, several new features, and support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The update adds the capability to return files to their original location if they’ve been quarantined or put in the Trash, enables you to pause and resume scans, and prevents the automatic movement of files when scanning email in Apple Mail with the quarantine setting turned on. (These three additions are not available with the Sentry hard drive monitoring tool.) The release also adds Reveal in Finder to the source list, provides “more useful” summary text, adds an option to animate the Dock icon while scanning, avoids a crash if the ClamAV engine isn’t found, and corrects the French localization. Note that as of this writing, the Mac App Store version of ClamXav is stalled at version 2.3.6. (Free, 20.5 MB, release notes)
Open Links from Apple Mail in the Background
If an email message in Mail includes a Web link which you'd prefer to check out after you've read all your mail, and you don't want to hunt for the link later, Command-click the link in the message to open a browser window in the background. Mail remains the foreground application, and the browser window can wait till you're ready.
