ConceptDraw Updated to 1.7.5 -- CS Odessa (once again a TidBITS sponsor), has released version 1.7.5 of the $125 ConceptDraw Standard and $250 ConceptDraw Professional (see "Making the Connection with ConceptDraw" in TidBITS-553 for a full review). New features include export to PDF and support for mouse scroll wheels in Mac OS X; CS Odessa also made changes to improve the interface, extend the Stamp tool's capabilities, and enhance outline mode in the Professional version. Version 1.7.5 also fixes a number of bugs with HTML and EPS export, print sizes, drag & drop from libraries in Mac OS X, editing text, and more. The update is free for users of previous versions of ConceptDraw; it's a 5.1 MB (Standard) or 7.4 MB (Professional) download. [ACE]
Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility
Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.
