Apple Releases Mac OS X 10.2.1 and iTunes 3.0.1 -- Apple pushed a trio of small upgrades out the door last week through Software Update and as separate downloads. The most significant was Mac OS X 10.2.1, which peppers the operating system with numerous small enhancements. Examples include improved compatibility between iMovie and media converters; the capability for CDs burned on a Mac to be read under Windows; improvements in Mail to avoid messages being lost when the connection is broken; resolved printing issues; and a handful of iBook fixes. Mac OS X 10.2.1 is a 17.1 MB download. Also released, but without details about what's changed, was iTunes 3.0.1, which offers unspecified performance enhancements and Jaguar compatibility; the update is a 5 MB download. Finally, Apple posted Security Update 2002-09-20, which replaces the Terminal application for an undisclosed reason; the download is 680K. [JLC]
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.
