Maintain your Mac with Maintain’s Cocktail and make Apple’s pesky Notification Center go away — skat, you! Get your Mac apps updated here. That said, Dropbox users should prepare themselves for bug fix loving, though that’s mostly about Ubuntu and Windows. And, hello, is this thing on? Adobe has updated Shockwave Player.

It’s cold in Sweden, but Maintain has pushed out (with their hot little hands) Cocktail 6.2 (site, download), a fairly significant update of their popular OS X maintenance utility for the Mac:

• Added ability to disable Notification Center (System – Misc)
• Added ability to set the Software Update frequency (System – Misc)
• Added ability to set the default file save location in iCloud supported applications (Interface – General)
• Added “Use the Backspace key to show the previous page” setting (Interface – Safari)
• Fixed compatibility issues with Firefox 16
• Updated Help files
• Updated Automator actions
• Other bug fixes and improvements

Drop what you’re doing — well, calmly complete those tasks — and go get Dropbox 1.4.20 (MacUpdate), which doesn’t have a lot of stuffs for the rest of us:

• Fix menu icon not showing for Ubuntu 12.10
• Fix tray icon not showing for Windows 8
• Other small fixes

And, hello, is this thing on? Is these an echo in here? Adobe has released Shockwave Player 11.6.8.638 (download), though piczilla isn’t saying what’s changed (assuming anyone still cares).
