#1635: Adobe/Pantone quarrel, does Matter matter yet?, OneWorld 65W international charger, corral your email with SaneBox, e3 Software sponsoring TidBITS

Why do Adobe users have to pay extra to use certain colors? Adam Engst dips his toe into the complex world of color and why Adobe Creative Cloud users must now subscribe to Pantone Connect or use a workaround to access “Pantone-ish” colors. Josh Centers discusses the official launch of Matter, which promises a future of home automation free from walled ecosystems but isn’t quite there yet. Freshly back from a trip to Greece, Adam reviews the svelte OneWorld 65W international adapter and charger, which can power up to six devices anywhere in the world. Josh talks about how SaneBox helped him tame his email where nothing else worked. Finally, we welcome e3 Software, makers of the Direct Mail email newsletter app, as a TidBITS sponsor. Notable Mac app releases this week include (deep breath) Transmit 5.9, Logic Pro 10.7.5, GarageBand 10.4.7, Photos Search 4.0, Pixelmator Pro 3.1, Ulysses 28, Alfred 5.0.5, Hazel 5.2, 1Password 8.9.8, Fantastical 3.7.3, and HoudahGeo 6.3.3.
