1646: Security-focused OS updates, Photos Workbench review, Mastodon client wishlist, Apple-related conferences

Another week, another set of OS updates to plug a serious WebKit vulnerability that is being actively exploited in the wild—update soon! We also announce a new community-built list of Apple-related conferences. Intrigued by the possibilities associated with Mastodon’s open, non-commercial nature, Adam Engst suggests some ways that Mastodon clients could go beyond the Twitter paradigm. Finally, Julio Ojeda-Zapata rejoins us after a long absence with a look at Houdah Software’s new Photos Workbench, an app that provides more flexible and efficient organizational tools for your Photos library. Notable Mac app releases this week include Fantastical 3.7.7, DEVONthink 3.9, Quicken 6.12, DiskWarrior 5.3, and Safari 16.3.1.
