Mac Updates: Evernote, Dropbox, Office for Mac, Flash Player and Boom!
Wow, what a day for Mac updates! If you do productivity, then you need to know about the patches from Evernote, Dropbox and Microsoft. Meanwhile, Adobe has a Flash Player catch-me-up and, if you want better Mac audio, you need to get Boom — best $7 I’ve spent in years.
• Evernote 5.0.7 (blog, MAS)
— This update addresses a security issue that requires you to reset your password. Details on blog.evernote.com
— Re-designed menu bar Helper called Quick Note: Create a note any time by clicking the helper or CMD+CTRL+N
— Various bug and localization fixes
Though Adobe malevolent multimedia middleware is almost universally despise, it’s almost ubiquitous. So, kvetch if you must, but get Flash Player 11.6.602.180 (download), which actually includes some “new” features along with the usual dollop of security catch up:
— Loading of telemetry.cfg causes performance problems on page refresh
— Opera browser crash
— Flash Player crash due to integer overflow
— Memory intrinics: To enable memory intrinics two changes are required:
— Produce the memory op codes by changing the compiler
— Expose the appropriate APIs through playeglobal.swc to leverage these opcodes
— See also: Adobe Air 3.6
Finally, if you have yet tried Boom, a Mac audio enhancer, you owe it to yourself because it’s super cool and there is a free trial. For those of us already onboard, there is Boom 1.7 (MAS), which delivers bug fixes and — been waiting for these — six new equalizers (Jazz, Rock, Pop, Classical, Acoustic and Electronic).
Yep, get Boom — $7 well spent…
