Open Door Networks today released DoorStop 1.0, a software-based firewall that promises to improve security on Macintosh-based Internet servers, particularly those providing AppleShare-over-IP services via Open Door's ShareWay IP. Operating only on the Macintosh on which it is installed, DoorStop enables you to block or grant access to specific TCP services - see "Open Door Slams Network Doors" in TidBITS 444 for more details. DoorStop requires a PowerPC-based Macintosh, Mac OS 8.1, and Open Transport 1.3 or later. Single copies of DoorStop cost $299 or $199 for education customers; various other volume and site licenses available. You can download a 680K free evaluation version.
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.
