Hmm. From the looks of the screenshots it seems like this is a rehash of the Sunrise Browser source.
Count me among the many 2.x users who have been left cold by the 3.x update. I've defended Mailplane and it's pricing in the past on places such as this, but now my own experience with 3.0 also seems to be that it doesn't offer much in the way of anything significantly new. Today, my existing 2.5.x install of Mailplane is locked out of Gmail due to an endless login loop, and I don't think I can expect a fix anytime soon. I sadly don't have much inclination to upgrade, especially with them discontinuing 2.x development.
I find it really annoying that this is still on MacUpdate, even though it is completely a webapp. There is no desktop client to download, or app to install; the fruux staff who've commented on this argue that they still support their old prefpane, but there's no clear link to download it anywhere on their site. By extension, should MU list all webapps on their site? This entry pretty much amounts to linkspam, as it misleads users into signing up for their service when they may have been expecting a desktop app-based system. Sad.
For anyone curious about what's happened with Ecoute, in so many words, Apple's ridiculous policies with Sandboxing pretty much screwed over PixiApps with Ecoute. I'm sorry to see this happen, and I'm starting to fear that this may very well be the end of Ecoute. Ugh.
I got the email yesterday. Sigh. Figures. Just when Sparrow finally got good and useful for me. R.I.P. Sparrow - and F.U., Google.
"...D2X-XL...removed all robot makers from a level when loading it..." Heh, I'd call that a feature, not a bug.
For anyone interested, this latest version of CrossOver incorporates the changes made in the latest version of WINE (1.4). Some classic gems like Fallout, Fallout 2, and even Shogo: Mobile Armor Division and Blood 2: The Chosen all work well. (Disclaimer: I was a beta tester for this version of CrossOver.)
For anyone tempted by the current Steam sale of Limbo (50% off until Jan. 3rd) the Mac port of Limbo is supported under SteamPlay, and will be coming to Steam in early January 2012. (January 12th, if what I've read is correct.)
I've just rediscovered this game after purchasing it many moons ago over at the Mac Game Store. This UNITY-based first/third person shooter is a simplistic game, but it's old-school arcade-style mechanic makes the game unexpectedly rather addictive, as you try over and over to beat your best score. The controls are crisp, and the graphical style is quite nice. Overall it's a great and satisfying little indie shooter that's good for blowing off some steam during work breaks.
Just as a heads up, this needs either the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe data files (from the MS-DOS CD-ROM release), or the open source replacement data files (OpenGFX, OpenSFX, and OpenMSX), available from the OpenTTD website.
