Using Keyboard Commands While Screen Sharing

In Snow Leopard, screen sharing now properly transfers all keyboard commands to the remote server. For example, the Command-Tab application switcher switches applications only on the remote system's screen.

QuickTime 7.0.1 Fixes Security Hole

Send Article to a Friend

QuickTime 7.0.1 Fixes Security Hole -- Apple has released QuickTime 7.0.1, a 26.6 MB download via Software Update. This update replaces the Quartz Composer plug-in, which was found to be capable of sending local data to an arbitrary Web location using an encoded URL. The new component prevents this from happening. QuickTime 7.0.1 supports Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.

QuickTime 7.0.1 also includes unspecified bug fixes and allegedly improves compatibility with Apple's Final Cut Studio. TidBITS Technical Editor Geoff Duncan discovered fixes for a couple of annoying QuickTime 7 problems on multi-channel audio interfaces: QuickTime 7.0.1 respects the user's default stereo output pair (where version 7.0 sent stereo audio only to channels 1 and 2 - bummer if your speakers are connected to outputs 3 and 4!), and version 7.0.1 plays monophonic audio correctly.
