Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.

BBEdit 5.0.1 Update -- Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 5.0.1, an update to the commercial version of the high-powered text editor. In addition to a handful of bug fixes (see "HTML Enhancements Highlight BBEdit 5.0" in TidBITS-454), changes in this version include the function scanner now supporting JavaScript (whether embedded in an HTML document or in a standalone file), additional support for inserting include files and placeholder tags, improved image tag updating, and the addition of several HTML-oriented scripting commands. Version 5.0.1 also adds a generous selection of tweaks and minor feature enhancements. Owners of BBEdit 5.0 can download the 1 MB update for free from the Bare Bones Web site or a number of mirror sites. [GD]
