Beyonce and Jay-Z’s newest release shows how Apple Music has tipped the streaming scale

MacCentral - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 06:00

At 5:30 pm EDT on Saturday, the Tidal high-fidelity music streaming service was suddenly the center of attention. Just weeks after Kanye West dropped his Ye album on all streaming services—underscoring the dissolution of his once-exclusive contract with Tidal—Jay-Z and Beyonce shocked the world with a surprise collaborative record titled Everything is Love. And the only place you could get it was Tidal.

Somewhat surprisingly, that exclusivity didn't last very long. While other high-profile albums have enjoyed Tidal exclusivity for weeks or, in the case of Beyonce's Lemonade, years, Everything is Love had a stint that lasted about 36 hours. By the time people were looking for some music to play on their Monday morning commute, Beyonce's and Jay-Z's new record was available for streaming on Apple Music and Spotify Premium (available for free on Spotify on July 2)  and the only thing exclusive to Tidal was an outtake track.

inShort 2.2 - Build and monitor diagrams of processes.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 05:57

inShort allows you to build diagrams of processes and monitor their execution. As a rule, tasks do not exist on their own; they are usually interrelated, and the best way to show this is to build a diagram of processes.

Almost every task in the program can be drilled down to a separate diagram, until the project is broken down into elementary operations. Having constructed a detailed scheme, you can simulate the future execution of the project, what will become the basis for the planned schedule, which can be compared with the current execution of tasks without leaving the program. You can also place some tasks in the Calendar and set reminders on them.

More formally, the program allows you to build a customized, based on the BPMN notation, PERT diagram of the project (with events and processes at nodes). Then this description of the project is used to generate a Gantt chart and track the progress of the project.

Version 2.2:
  • The version of inShort Pro is supplemented with the ability to create custom chart presentation styles.
  • The input forms for resources have been modified. Fixed rare irregularities in the work of forms that occur when records are deleted.

  • OS X 10.8 or later

Default Folder X 5.2.5 - Enhances Open and Save dialogs.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 04:44

Default Folder X attaches a toolbar to the right side of the Open and Save dialogs in any OS X-native application. The toolbar gives you fast access to various folders and commands. You just click on the buttons to go to your favorite and recently used folders, manage the folders and files shown in the list, and make changes to your settings. It also fixes a number of problems in Open and Save dialogs, "rebounding" to the last selected file, putting the path listing back in the top menu, and correcting bugs in scrolling column views.

  • Directory assistant: You can access the contents of your recent, favorite, and open folders right from Default Folder X's toolbar.
  • Real time saving: If you're constantly saving things inside the same folder, Default Folder X can remember that folder for you.
  • Finder management: Default Folder X lets you open up or save to any Finder window with a single click.
  • Instant Recall: To help you quickly return to folders you've recently used, Default Folder X remembers them for you.
  • Spotlight on the spot: Default Folder X lets you add Spotlight keywords, OpenMeta tags, and Finder labels on the spot, while you're still in the Save dialog.
  • Information central: With Default Folder X you get previews below every Open dialog, expanded to fill the available space. Need to see more detail? Click on the image and it zooms up to full size.
  • Workflow without work: Rather than make you learn and set up a new application, Default Folder X blends into OS X.

Version 5.2.5: Feature enhancements:
  • Preliminary Mojave compatibility. Mojave file dialogs are supported, but Dark Mode is still to come.
  • There's now a preference to sort all subfolders in Default Folder X's hierarchical menus by date. It's surprisingly handy.
  • You can specify a default folder for an application and set it so it's only used when manually selected from the Favorites menu.
  • Added a GetCurrentSelectionList AppleScript verb to return all items when multiple files and folders are selected.
  • You can no longer set a shortcut key that's just Shift+Key because that's never really what you want.
  • Support was added for the Oxygen XML Editor suite.
  • If you would prefer to have Default Folder X continue to use the Finder to open folders even when you are running Path Finder or ForkLift, you can now specify that by using this command in Terminal:
    defaults write com.stclairsoft.DefaultFolderX5 fileViewer
Bug fixes:
  • When displaying a symbolic link in its menus, Default Folder X now shows the name of the link rather than the name of the item it points to.
  • If Default Folder X is set to open an item in the frontmost Finder window and the only open Finder window is minimized to the Dock, the window will be unminimized when Default Folder X tells the Finder to show the item.
  • The popup names shown when you hover over items in the drag zone will no longer get stuck on-screen.
  • Visual feedback when dragging an item to the drag zone is now correct. The '+' and link icons are never shown.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a file dialog to freeze with a spinning progress indicator showing.
  • Keyboard traversal of Default Folder X's menus would stop working after using its utility menu. This has been fixed.
  • Fixed a bug that made it impossible to drag a file to the drag zone if you clicked on its icon in column view while running High Sierra.
  • Corrected display problems when showing Default Folder X's controls around very short file dialogs.
  • Fixed the cause of some spurious crashes.

  • OS X 10.10 or later
