Snapz Pro X 1.0.7 Released -- Ambrosia Software has released Snapz Pro X 1.0.7, the latest version of their Mac OS X screen capture utility. The new version can capture movies of screen actions with less impact on the Mac during capturing (at the cost of a lower frame rate). The update also adds localization for Korean (joining Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Swedish, and Traditional Chinese) and makes localized documentation a separate download, thus reducing the size of the Snapz Pro X download significantly. A number of annoying bugs have been fixed, including problems Snapz Pro X would cause when taking screenshots of X11 applications, a conflict with SpellCatcher X, and problems with capturing full-screen applications like games (and possibly Keynote presentations). And, in a welcome change, Snapz Pro X now defaults to overwriting screenshots if you enter the same name as an existing screenshot; this eases the process of replacing bad screenshots. Registered users who purchased directly from Ambrosia can upgrade for free; if you received a licensed copy of Snapz Pro X with your Mac, you can upgrade to 1.0.7 for $19. It's a 4.1 MB download.

Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008
If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.
