Considering the weird jabber implementation in Apple Server 3, ejabberd is a true wealth. And its well documented contrary to Apple's software(s). The only things missing are native SSL support and an autostart feature. I did achieve this by an Applescript as a login item:

do shell script "/Applications/ejabberd-13.12/bin/ejabberdctl start"

New version 74.3.0 available at the developer's website.

"This installer is a feature release of the MacZFS-74.x code line. It provides the same pool and file system revision as MacZFS-74.0 to MacZFS-74.2, but adds full support for the "ashift" property (for zpool create and add), a working ztest and zdb utilities, updated manpages and support for more than 80 columns in zpool iostat output. It will install on MacOSX Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion."

I use this as a media server. Tried all others like iTunes, Plex, XBMC etc. They all (h)eat up my CPU, even when not active. VLC is almost invisible when in idle state. I'm using "VLC Remote" on my iPhone for easy controlling. Very nice!

I disagree with homoerectus' statement. Basically it seems to be a nice two pane file utility with remote file system support. There could be some batch file and sync operation. The GREP search is a nice feature. (For the dev: The search pattern field should have the auto update attribute set. At the moment you have to leave this field by pressing TAB to have the application recognized the new input.)

V.6.14 is available now on the dev's site. With 6.12 I was not able to get the SHSH signature. 6.14 did it.

To be fair I don't want to rate here now, because I didn't by it and never will. I've been using Pixelmator and GIMP already, but I doubt they will fill the gap, it's not only about retouching, it's also color management and conversion etc.! I hope there will soon be a good competitor. "Perfect Photo Suite" seems promising. Has anyone tried this? Unfortunately MU doesn't list it, so I can't "suggest" it.

I'm rather disappointed about this software. At first the usability is strange. It seems it's been written without respect to Apple's guidelines. But what's even worse: it crashes and complains about several issues in some tested HTML documents, that are non existent. For example it says the body tag is unknown, although it's coded correctly and not uppercase. Clicking on the given line numbers gets me anywhere but not to the corresponding lines. (The W3C online validation service gives no errors at all there.) Maybe i'm missing something there. So the rating is for the usability and the GUI.

Thanks to the developer. Great support. The invalid tag bug has been fixed within two days!

BTW: I have to agree - there are a some major software companies ignoring these design guidelines for years now. But they soon will vanish into the cloud...

iCloud sync is not an option for me. And the GUI is nice but useless, when you have to store large amounts of sensitive data. I used 1Password for many years, but as they removed the WIFI sync, I'm looking for other apps now.

The hardest thing with Icinga is to set it up. Doing this under OSX is kind of tricky and not easy, at least it was not for me. I recommend to use a virtual machine, Debian or Centos. And for the configs and backups I recommend NagiosQL. Once you got it running, it's a nice monitoring machine. You can even use your iOS device to watch the stats. I tried "TouchMon Lite" (free) and "Nagify". Both are now talking to Icinga 1.9.1, only Nagify crashes when updating a service view. Monitoring OSX server support is also possible by installing plugins.

Hm... maybe they should also mention "68K" under requirements?

Besides that: Apple's OSs have always been kind of elegant and stylish to me. But in my eyes the new 'colorful' appearance of 10.9 and iOS7 does not fit, somehow.
