Ergonis Software has released PopChar X 3.1, adding automatic font detection for Apple's Pages 2.0 or later (see "PopChar X 3.0 Improves Usability," 2006-07-03). Also new in Ergonis's utility for finding and inserting special characters and HTML symbols are a more sophisticated technique for choosing the best size for displaying fonts, detection of corrupted fonts, and faster reaction when the keyboard layout changes. PopChar X 3.1 also fixes a number of bugs; it's definitely worthwhile. The free update is a 1.5 MB download; new copies cost $30.

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.
