TidBITS Watchlist: Notable Software Updates for 11-Aug-08

  • Nisus Writer Express 3.1 from Nisus Software adds to the low-end word processor a Go To Page feature, an option to control the thickness of the caret pointer, a Page Borders palette, and an option to ignore rich text formatting when opening HTML files as plain text. Numerous bugs have also been fixed, a number of which should improve performance in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. ($45 new, free upgrade, 47.2 MB)
  • iPhone 2.0.1 from Apple includes "bug fixes" - that's the extent of the release notes, although a separate document in Apple's KnowledgeBase describes the security vulnerabilities (mostly in Safari and WebKit) fixed by this update. It's available via iTunes. (Free, 242 MB)
