Together update: 2.1.4

TogetherLate last week Reinvented Software updated Together to version 2.1.4. This minor version increase fixes an Applescript problem that could cause Together to hang or crash, now has files with the .aac extension imported as sounds (instead of movies), and fixes a number of other bugs.

For more details and to download, see the release notes.

Evernote now in open beta

evernote.pngEvernote, the access-anywhere application for storing notes and images, is now an open beta (no more needing to be invited!). Among other changes, this release also finally reveals the Evernote revenue plan: there are now free and premium accounts. Although both accounts can store as much stuff online as you want, the free account only lets you upload 40 megabytes a month while the $5/month premium account allows you to upload 500 megabytes a month (along with a few other perks).

Evernote is very cool, and well worth checking out. Although I’ve been slightly underwhelmed with the Mac client (hopefully I’ll get a preview/review up here soon, although it’s been on the burner for months) the service has a lot to recommend it (for details see the Evernote website or the numerous places around the web where people have been lavishing praise on the service). For details about the recent public beta release, check out the Evernote blog post on the topic.

MarsEdit update: 2.1.4

MarsEditMarsEdit, my favorite blogging aid, has been updated to version 2.1.4. This minor update doesn’t add any big new features, but provides a Dock menu item for starting a new post, support for uploading to a specific Picasa album for Blogger users, preventing the preview window from loading an arbitrary URL if you dragged it onto it, a fixed display of tags in the main window preview, and a safeguard against crashing on bad URLs.

For more details see the 2.1.4 blog announcement.

Together update: 2.1.3

TogetherTogether, a file library whose recent 2.1 update makes it one of the most compelling choices for tag-happy users, was updated today to version 2.1.3. This minor update includes a number of bug fixes, including fixes for a crash that occurred when indexing in the background, preventative measures when trying to link to the same file twice, and a problem where PDF attachments were not displayed in Quick Look previews. the Yojimbo Importer also received a minor update, including the option to choose what kinds of Yojimbo items to import.

Updates in early June

Needless to say, I’ve been a bit remiss in my blog updating the past couple weeks. A four-day weekend spent in the mountains with my girlfriend and new Kindle (and no internet or cell phone access) has had a surprisingly lasting effect on my online habits. I hadn’t realized how much effort I was spending on keeping up to date with the interwebs until I took some time off.

In any case, some great software has received incremental updates in the recent past. Together was updated to version 2.1.2 (release notes), EagleFiler was bumped to 1.3.4 (release notes), Leap is now sitting at 1.0.6 (an update that includes Time Machine support, Danish support, and a couple bug/crash fixes), and Default Folder X is now at 4.0.6 (release notes). Enjoy.
