Using Keyboard Commands While Screen Sharing

In Snow Leopard, screen sharing now properly transfers all keyboard commands to the remote server. For example, the Command-Tab application switcher switches applications only on the remote system's screen.

Downcast 1.0.6

Send Article to a Friend

Jamawkinaw Enterprises has released Downcast 1.0.6 with significant stability improvements for the podcatcher app, including a major fix for deadlocks and hangs (see “Downcast Comes to Mac, but Lacks Instacast’s Polish,” 3 August 2013). This maintenance release also offers fixes for a bug that caused downloads to become stuck in download queue, a problem that prevented streaming of non-local episodes, a frequent irritating reset of your selections in lists, a hitch that caused remaining playlist time to get out of sync, and a vexing issue that caused the episode list to disappear. The update also now ensures that the process of deleting imported episodes now deletes them completely instead of just resetting them. ($9.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 6.4 MB, release notes)
