Interarchy 7.0.1 Adds Polish -- Only a few weeks after the initial release of Interarchy 7.0 (see "Interarchy 7.0 Adds Tabs, Improves Interface" in TidBITS-718), Stairways Software has released a free update to tweak a few features and squash a few bugs. Interarchy 7.0.1 now supports custom port numbers for SFTP connections, provides keyboard shortcuts for opening folders in new tabs and for editing URLs, better handles aliases in the Bookmarks window and Startup Items folder, and more. It's free to registered users and is a 2.7 MB download. Because Interarchy 7.0.1 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later, Stairways Software has made Interarchy 6.3 available for free for those still using Mac OS 8.5 or later versions of the classic Mac OS. [ACE]
Turn Off Filename Extension Warning
In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.
