I've got Snow

Category : Technology/Snow.txt

I'm going to do a clean install of my store-bought copy of Snow Leopard on my MacBook Pro. Doing a backup of all my work now.

I've solved the problem with MailServe's new anti-spam feature not working on the last development copy of Snow Leopard that I had, i.e., 10A432. It works OK now.

I was trying to squeeze in one new feature for DNS Enabler - the ability to do BIND views - but I have to concede that this going to be a bit more than I can chew. So I'm going to release my last good version of DNS Enabler for Snow Leopard and continue working on it.

Quite a lot of mail coming in for the new versions that will work with Snow Leopard. While I will answer every mail, it may be better that I spend the time getting the work done. Give me one more day and I'll have them ready.

I'm going to call them all MailServe Snow, DNS Enabler Snow, and WebMon Snow (dropping the MailServe Pro designation to simplify all the naming). There are subtle improvements and changes in all of them (e.g., new binaries, config files, new techniques, and new oft-requested-for features). I'm just disappointed I couldn't get the BIND views feature done on time for DNS Enabler but I'll get there.

I love a lot of things about Snow Leopard. Little things, like I can now control my HP all-in-one (including scan) using Apple's much more simplified interface in System Preferences (rather than HP's cluttered attempt at writing Mac applications). And the speed. And not having to build PPC fat binaries.

It's a platform to build on.

My backup's done. Snow Leopard is on its way.
