Apple has released iTunes 11.2.2, a quick follow-up to last week’s release with tweaks to the Podcasts user interface (see “iTunes 11.2.1 Fixes /Users Folder Bug, Improves Podcasts Library,” 19 May 2014). The update fixes a problem where podcast episodes would download unexpectedly after upgrading to the previous version, and it includes Apple’s usual “unspecified stability improvements.” iTunes 11.2.2 is available as a direct download from Apple’s iTunes Web page or via Software Update. (Free, 224 MB, 10.6.8+)
Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard
The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.
