New Software Updates Available

Hot on the heels of the new hardware released yesterday, we’ve got some new software to go along with it.

Magic Trackpad and Multi-Touch Trackpad Update 1.0

I was surprised to see this update show up on my MacBook Pro, but it does add more functionality to your trackpad’s configuration options, including “intertial scrolling” which lets you set your trackpad to scroll through lists like an iPod Touch or iPhone.

10.6.4 update for 2010 iMac

If you’re one of the fortunate souls who managed to get one of the new iMacs released yesterday, this one’s just for you. It includes the normal 10.6.4 updates, as well as these 2010 iMac-specific fixes:

  • Resolves compatibility and performance-related graphics issues.
  • Improves compatibility with large-format SDXC memory cards.
  • Adds support for Magic Trackpad.

Safari 5.0.1

This update contains a bunch of small fixes you’d normally expect from a .0.1 release, but it also adds another, slightly more significant, option: the addition of “extensions.”

These extensions are in addition to the more broad-range “plug-ins” like Glims or ClickToFlash, and (from the few I tried) they don’t seem to conflict with each other.

Even if you don’t use extensions or plug-ins, though, it’s probably worth the download, just to fix the short laundry list of security, stability and usability bugs.
