TidBITS#1370/22-May-2017

There won’t be an email issue of TidBITS next week — we’re taking Memorial Day off to spend time with our families, but articles will continue to appear on our Web site, and we’ll be back on 5 June 2017 with coverage of Apple’s WWDC keynote. Apple automation guru Sal Soghoian has created a new conference, CMD-D, that will help you up your automation game. Matt Neuburg rejoins us to discuss what it took to update the TidBITS News app for the iOS 10 era. Julio Ojeda-Zapata covers announcements from the Google I/O conference that will have ramifications for the Apple universe. Finally, we have an excerpt from Scholle McFarland’s new book, “Take Control of Calendar and Reminders,” which will help you solve common problems with those apps. Notable software releases this week include OmniOutliner Essentials and Pro 5.0.4, TextExpander 6.2.1, Things 3.0.2, Microsoft Office 2016 15.34 and Office 2011 14.7.4, Mellel 3.5.3, KeyCue 8.4, Airfoil 5.6, iTunes 12.6.1, Safari 10.1.1, and Security Update 2017-002 (Yosemite and El Capitan).
