New version 5.4 has been released.
[Version 5.3]

Holypoly commented on 23 Feb 2014
New version 2.7.2 is out:

Full Mavericks support, including the return of auto-mount and auto-eject for scheduled copies.
Scheduling has transitioned to launchd from cron
New volume size information available in the source and destination pop-ups
New volume information tooltips for the source and destination pop-up lists
Warning in the "What's going to happen?" section of the UI when the source drive has significantly more data than the capacity of the destination
Improvements to "Backup on connect" to help with a launchd bug in "WatchPaths"
Works around a problem in Mavericks with Spotlight handling (where mdsutil can't talk to mds and returns IPC errors)
Improvements around prebinding (only done when strictly necessary)
Elimination of the rare "Copy Job" unclickable dialog
Smart Update speed improvements
Scheduled Copies window will re-open on launch if open on quit again on 10.8+
Applescript launch no longer loads default settings on 10.8+
Large EAs no longer return "result too large" errors
Scheduled copies no longer generate annoying and incorrect "controlling your computer" security prompts
Now requires OS X 10.6 or later (but 2.7.1 still available for those using 10.4 and 10.5)
Various other optimizations, changes, and things I've forgotten because I am old and broken

Can't get it to run under Mountain Lion, constantly getting "stream server could not be started" errors. Works fine under Snow Leopard (same MBP 8,2; but different partition). Strangely enough, on my MBP 8,1 I get frequent " (ipc/send) invalid destination port" errors when viewing BDs on an ATD, which won't go away even when restarting MKV and VLC 2.0.7. However, until Apple stops banning BD video from Macs, MakeMKV is a very worthwhile solution - thank you, GuinpinSoft.

New in Version 6.20:
Scoring system changed for "Accordion" solitaire

New in Version 6.36:
Fixed problem in Crazy Quit
Cards size adjusted
Cameras updated
New boards added
Can now change game speed when viewing scores

Also, the start-up screen has been updated with a somehow "slicker" design and default font has been changed - not sure whether I liked the old style better, though.

Version 2.7.1 has been released :)

And - no, I don't find it _too_ expensive, albeit a little pricey.

However, these sites describe the transfer of keychain data only between Macs, leaving out iOS devices . Keychain2go includes the latter, too - sorry, my fault.

Developer mailed me today about the release of ver. 1.7:
"Fracture 1.7 should be compatible with all machines running OS X 10.6, 10.7, or 10.8 (although it does not use Retina displays to their full potential, since I don't have a Retina machine to test with). Apologies for the version 1.6 debacle that bit some of you, and how long it took for me to fix it; I've been working on my PhD, which I just completed a week ago, and that was keeping me too busy to deal with Stick Software stuff."

"MakeMKV contains both freeware and shareware functionality. More information can be found here."

No such information - except that I now know that my shopping cart is empty, but then I already knew that ;)))))

An updated version of the mach_kernel file (creation date: June 8, 2011) made my MBP shutdown prematurely after applying the MBP Software Update ver1,4 . Restoring the older mach_kernel (March 6 2011) from back-up made everything normal again.
The 10.6.8 Combo Updater also installs the newer mach_kernel at Root level, and again the MBP would shut down during boot, before the login screen. Safe Boot would let me proceed a couple of minutes beyond login, before the mac would shut down without any error message. No clue in the system log (last entry before shutdown was "BUG found in libdispatch" - hm).
Again, replacing the mach_kernel file with the older version of which I had kept a copy, cured the problem, and as I am typing this, my MBP has been running without a hitch for almost one hour.
Another poster at MU (a_w) had similar problems with his MBP 13 Early 2011 after applying the MBP SW 1.4 updater, again with the new mach_kernel file being the culprit.
Hope this can help anybody having skipped the MBP 2011 software update and experiencing premature shutdowns of their new macbook pro after updating to Snowy 10.6.8.

After installing the Combo updater, my MBP 13 Early 2011 would shut down spontaneously during startup, even before log-in.
Safe boot made it survive a couple of minutes longer, then it would shut down without a kernel panic. No clue in the system log (last message before shutdown was, however, that a bug was found in libdispatch - hm).
Then I remembered a similar problem after installing the MacBook Pro Software Updater 1.4, which amongst a couple of framework updates also updated the mach_kernel file at Root level. Replacing that with the previous mach_kernel file made the premature shutdown issue go away.
The 10.6.8 updater again replaced the older mach_kernel with the newer item, I found (using Path Finder). Fortunately I was able to boot from an emergency drive and then replace the mach_kernel with the older version. Voilà - everything runs stable now.
This problem seems to be specific to some MBP 13 Early 2011, as another poster here on MU (a_w) encountered a similar issue with his own machine, and again the newer mac_kernel appeared to be the culprit.
If anybody needs the old mach_kernel, I would be able to send it to him or her.

A mail with the zipped mach_kernel file has just been sent.
Tell me how it works out.

Beware - after updating to ver5.5.2 Airport Utility no longer detects my Airport Express base, even though it still shows up under Network.

Second try, this time through Software Update from the Apple Menu. Emaculatio praecox. Again. Thanks, but no thanks.

yep, same here. Crashes on me every 2-3 minutes, first version crashing that often in my experience.

The "ghost window" bug is still present in 2.1.1 - "tabbing" the Eye TV window and then hiding it produces an ugly white box overlying part of the desktop thant can't be moved or removed. I still have to reboot to get rid of the artifact.

Oops - forget to mention that quitting EyeTV also makes it go away.

The chat window takes years to load with this new version, and the chat option can't be turned off - it loads even if the corresponding box in "Community Chat..." is unchecked. Deleting the .plist file doesn't help. Version didn't have this problem.

I still got that "garbled menu text" issue in iWOW 1.1.8 (and 1.1.6 before) - but only on my Mac Pro (10.4.9 w/all patches, only haxie is Instant Hijack Server by Rogue Amoeba which should not interfere with either iTunes or iWOW).
My MacMini Intel (same software constellation) shows no such problem.
After a few seconds, the text in the Preset menu becomes unreadable, because all characters appear on top of each other. Not only that, but iTunes quits unexpectedly when launching a song, but ONLY until the garbled text synptom in iWOW manifests itself (after that, iTunes regains its stability).
I ran every possible check'n'repair utility, even reinstalled the 10.4.9 Combo update, nothing helps. Anybody else out there...?

Sometimes, the song will start playing but iTunes the quits after a few seconds. Or, starting a song by double-clicking it crashes iTunes after launch, but selecting the song and then clicking the Play button does not (the song starts playing). Bringing the iWOW window to the front while a song is playing makes iTunes quit, as long as text in the Preset menu looks normal.
In a few rare cases, everything was quite normal right from launch, i.e. no crashes despite normal text in the iWOW window.
When the abnormal text starts to show, clicking on "About" and "help" (still iWOW) corrupts the word that just got clicked on, too. Weird.

From SRSLabs' website:

NOTE: iWOW will not work on the specific combination of OS 10.3.9 with iTunes 7. iWOW may have intermittent compatability issues with iTunes 7 and OSX 10.4.7. We are currently investigating.
