TidBITS#1225/02-Jun-2014

We’re back from our Memorial Day hiatus with a huge issue of TidBITS. Apple charted the course for OS X and iOS for the next year at today’s WWDC keynote, where the company announced the redesigned OS X Yosemite alongside iOS 8, both with a flood of features for users and developers alike. But that’s not all, since Apple last week dropped $3 billion on Beats, maker of the Beats Music streaming service and a line of popular premium headphones. In other news, Apple also updated iWork for iCloud, Microsoft released a new Surface 3 tablet that hopes to get it right, we look forward to the 2014 MacTech Conference in November, and TidBITS members can read the latest chapter of Charles Edge’s “Take Control of OS X Server.” In FunBITS this week, Josh Centers examines Hearthstone, an online collectible card game for the Mac and iPad. Notable software releases over the past two weeks include TextExpander 4.3.1, Microsoft Office 2011 14.4.2, ScreenFlow 4.5.1, iFlicks 2.0.3, iTunes 11.2.2, Mellel 3.3.3, Postbox 3.0.10, Audio Hijack Pro 2.10.10 and Nicecast 1.10.10, KeyCue 7.2, DEVONthink/DEVONnote 2.7.6, Yojimbo 4.0.3, Pixelmator 3.2, Safari 7.0.4 and 6.1.4, OS X Server 3.1.2, and NoteBook 4.0.1.

In case Apple’s massive WWDC announcements aren’t sufficient for you this week, Google has built a prototype of a self-driving car and brought the Rubik’s Cube to the Web. You can also get a look at Apple products that never came to pass, and Joe Kissell explains why he loves Nisus Writer Pro over all other word processors. eBay had a major security breach, so be sure to change your password, and Apple is working on a fix for iMessage woes for those who dare to leave the iPhone nest.
