View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

Security Update 2003-11-19 Helps Panther, Jaguar -- Apple released a pair of security updates last week via Software Update, bringing both Mac OS X 10.2.8 Jaguar and Mac OS X 10.3.1 Panther up to the same security level. Security Update 2003-11-19 improves OpenSSL security and fixes a potential problem with third-party applications using a print library. On Macs running Jaguar, the security update also fixes issues with Mail, QuickTime for Java, Personal File Sharing, and a few other vulnerabilities that were implemented in the first release of Mac OS X 10.3 Panther (see "Security Update 2003-10-28 Released" in TidBITS-704). The update for Jaguar is a 4.6 MB download; the update for Panther is a 1.3 MB download. [JLC]
