Looks interesting, but doesn't seem to work on OS X 10.9. Drag and drop does nothing. Also, why do you have to type the sign code in, why not just drag and drop the sign itself?

Tried to run the client installer (to update older client) on 4 different machines: error the installation could not complete.

Tried to uninstall first, then reinstall, same thing.

But after, in every case, it appears that it was updated, not sure why the error.

I need tape backup and that's the only reason I use Retrospect. This program has tortured me for years. A backup program that's been plagued with serious bugs from day one. It's shameful.

Current version 10.2:

email notifications still broken
randomly loses ability to connect to clients
media sets say they are "in use" when they are not
RetroISA uses more than 100% if CPU and has to be disabled via command line on clients (no other way)
randomly, some folders get backed up multiple times with no de-duplication, which runs quickly through tapes

This update does not show up when I click "check for update" from Protools 10.3.2, and it doesn't appear on their site, AFAIK.

I just tried the trial. I'm not sure if this is a limitation of the trial version or not, but it can only redact text, not scanned images. I need to be able to redact scanned images, without having to OCR it first. Seems like it would be a simple feature to add - just crop out a selected piece of graphic.

I've been using Menuweather for awhile (replaced "Metologist" which was great but not updated). I mostly use it just to see the outside temperature and forecasts. But, right now I am sitting in my apartment in New York City waiting for the onset of one of the worst hurricanes in recent history, and Menuweather reports "light showers, overcast, cool, wind 19 mph". WTF?

This update failed on my 2011 15" Macbook Pro with OWC SSD. After several hours "hung", I had to force a restart, after which my SSD boot drive was completely hosed - not even visible.

This is the fourth time I have had to RMA one of these drives. Not sure whether this was caused by the update or not, but I would avoid this update for now.

I've had version 3.6.1 since Aug 23. I don't understand this listing.

This version still has problems controlling computers with multi-monitor displays.

Doesn't show up in my software updates. And isn't 471 later than 417? I'm mystified.

Together with the phone dialer "Dialectic", this has changed my life.And the Facebook integration is awesome (pulls down pictures automatically).

Love it!

Having said that, CardDAV support would be welcome, and the ability to control font sizes would be great as well.

Promising, but this feels like a beta. No contacts sync, which is the reason I would want to switch from Dropbox to Ubuntu One.
