Mellel 3.2.7 -- Smoothing out the rough spots, RedleX has released Mellel 3.2.7 with several fixes to improve stability and performance. The word processor gets a fix for a crash that occurred with the Spotlight plug-in when trying to index template files, adds support for small caps in formatted citations and bibliographies, fixes a problem with non-functioning smart quotes in OS X 10.9 Mavericks using the Hebrew keyboard layout, avoids a crash when Mellel scanned documents containing empty citations, and fixes a problem with Bookends 12.0.6 that prevented live bibliographies from functioning correctly. As of this writing, the Mac App Store version remains at version 3.2.6. ($39 new from RedleX and the Mac App Store, free update, 97.7 MB, release notes)

Keyboard Maestro 6.3 -- Stairways Software has released Keyboard Maestro 6.3 with nearly 50 small enhancements and fixes in the automation utility. The update adds a delay before and after dragging in the drag mouse action, adds a number of Typed String trigger options, promises vast improvement in the performance of actions that write named clipboard entries, allows more use of shortcut letters in switchers with non-English keyboards, utilizes a “more modern method” of hardware key simulation to resolve issues with the Volume Control action, and adds support for displaying time saved in days, months, or years. A newly discovered bug can result in Keyboard Maestro-mediated clipboard text being messed up in some applications; look for 6.3.1 to appear shortly. ($36 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 24.1 MB, release notes)
