Interarchy 8 Adds WebDAV, Widgets, and Bonjour -- Peter Lewis and Stairways Software have released Interarchy 8.0, a major upgrade to the powerful file transfer and network monitoring application. Significant new features in Interarchy 8.0 include support for WebDAV (including Apple's iDisk), Automator (Download, List, Upload), local FTP server detection via Bonjour, Dashboard (in the form of Bookmark and Network Status widgets), FTP/SSL-TLS, HTTPS, and HTTP Authentication. Changes to Interarchy's interface are also notable: The Connect to Server window encapsulates all the steps necessary in an Automator-like interface, there are Action menus everywhere with available actions, there's an option to select new tabs as they're created, tabs can be permanently colorized, and the Transfers window behavior has been improved. Mirroring of local and remote folders has also been enhanced with a combined Mirror Reports window and Mirror Dry Run option (in Interarchy's Mirror preferences) that lets you see what will happen before committing to a long file transfer. Interarchy 8.0 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, including Tiger, and it's now a universal binary for people using Intel-based Macs. Upgrades are free for those who purchased Interarchy 7 after 01-Jan-06; otherwise upgrades cost $20 and new copies are $40. It's an 8.4 MB download. [ACE]
Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.
