Open Files from BBEdit Subversion Log

When you use BBEdit's Subversion client capabilities to update the working copy of your Subversion repository, BBEdit always displays the Subversion.log file, showing any changes. If you want to work on one of the files that appears as being added or updated, just select the full pathname and choose File > Open Selection (or just hit Command-D). This trick should also work any time you see a pathname within a BBEdit document.

 
 

Downcast 1.0.3

Send Article to a Friend

Boosting the Mac version of its podcatcher app with AirPlay support, Jamawkinaw Enterprises has released Downcast 1.0.3 with a number of new features and improvements. The update adds a preference to prevent screen dimming while playing videos, hides the cursor during video playback, makes significant improvements in iCloud syncing and stability, ensures the progress indicator is displayed when importing files, and makes several improvements to VoiceOver. It also fixes a bug that caused episodes to be marked for streaming instead of being downloaded and an issue that prevented the played/unplayed status from syncing correctly. ($9.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 6.1 MB, release notes)
