Connectix Updates Speed Doubler -- Connectix has posted an English updater for Speed Doubler that takes the recently released Speed Doubler 8.0 to 8.0.1A (see our MailBIT in TidBITS-402 for more Speed Doubler 8 information). If you downloaded but haven't used the 8.0.1 updater posted early last week, make sure you grab the most recent file, which corrects a problem with the updater itself. If you used the previous updater successfully, don't bother downloading 8.0.1A. The update to 8.0.1A fixes a number of bugs and a conflict with the StuffIt Browser in Aladdin's StuffIt Deluxe 4.5. Those upgrading to 8.0.1 should note that the Speed Doubler Updates page offers updaters for both Speed Doubler and Speed Copy. [JLC]
Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily
Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.
