The issue with Flash Player v13 consistently crashing in Safari and Firefox on my mid-2007 iMac appears to have been solved in version

Ronadam commented on 14 Jan 2014
Confusing: seems to be a release version, but the Flash Player prefs panel tells me that Adobe Flash Player 11.9.900.170 "is up to date on this system" (OSX 10.8.5).

This is ridiculous. A recommendation by MacUpdate (if at all) should be based on the quality of the software, not on a conflict between MacUpdate and the developer where some users were caught in the middle. Koingo made up with discounts, now MacUpdate should remove this childish non-recommendation note on all its Koingo's software pages.

BTW: I am a happy user of AirRadar.

Latest version (since 11/11/2013) is 3.4.2. See developer's site.

MacUpdate posts here about one beta after the other, but fails to mention release versions. Maybe they should stop posting about beta versions altogether.

The Adobe Flash Player latest release version at this moment is 11.8.800.168

I see now that the link to the latest stable version is on this page. But that is wrong! A new stable version release should be announced separately as such in the list and shown in MacUpdate Desktop, not as an easy to overlook link that is silently added on a page that is about a beta version!

I was referring to the "stable" link at the top of this page that most people will not find because the stable release is not mentioned in the software updates list.

Indeed, as you say, bad site design.

But it is even worse. I use MacUpdate Desktop and there the stable release version is never mentioned. Only the recent beta versions. If I were to depend on MacUpdate Desktop only, or on the MacUpdate email notifications that I get, I would never have known about the latest stable version.

Yes, MacUpdate is better than other similar sites, but the way they handle these alternating 11.9 beta updates and 11.8 stable updates of Flash Player is not right. The 11.8 updates are never announced in the list and never shown in MacUpdate Desktop.

Why didn't I find this gem earlier? I used many clipboard managers, both paid and free, but ClipMenu is the best for me. It can be configured to be as simple or elaborate as you need it to be and it will always still be simple to use. It works fine here in Mountain Lion 10.8.4. I see none of the CPU hogging or memory leak that some seem to experience. Apparently it was not developed beyond version 0.4.3 (2009). I very much hope that it will continue to work in future OSX versions.

As usual, this download also contains an installer for Silverlight. However, it is version 5.1.10411.0 while Silverlight 5.1.20125.0 was released almost two months ago.

I run iPhoto 9.4.2 on OSX 10.8.3 and Software Update tells me that there are no updates. (?)

I only bought one Lingon version back in 2011 through the Mac App Store. I now paid happily the $6.99 upgrade price for Lingon X. It is a good thing when developers publish parallel versions, one 'safe' version on MAS with limited features as required by Apple, and one with the features that are missing in the MAS version for direct purchase by users who want to be free to use those features.

After installation of the JDK 7 (which includes the JRE) on my Mountain Lion system, one of my favorite widgets (Sunlit Earth) crashed consistently. The report indicated that it was related to Java 1.7.0_06. No matter what I did in Java preferences, make sure that Java 7 was at the bottom of the list or uncheck the box next to it, made the widget use Java 6 again. It kept crashing and each time the report mentioned Java 1.7.0_06.

I then uninstalled Java 7 JDK and JRE, by removing these three files:
/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin

And I installed Apple Java for OS X Lion:

Everything works fine again.
[Version 1.7.0_06-b24]
