DNSCrypt 0.10 - Encrypt DNS traffic.. (Free)

DNSCrypt 0.10 - Encrypt DNS traffic.. (Free): "

DNSCrypt encrypts your site's DNS traffic.

DNS is one of the fundamental building blocks of the Internet. It's used any time you visit a website, send an email, have an IM conversation or do anything else online. While OpenDNS has provided world-class security using DNS for years, and OpenDNS is the most secure DNS service available, the underlying DNS protocol has not been secure enough for our comfort. Many will remember the Kaminsky Vulnerability, which impacted nearly every DNS implementation in the world (though not OpenDNS).

That said, the class of problems that the Kaminsky Vulnerability related to were a result of some of the underlying foundations of the DNS protocol that are inherently weak -- particularly in the "last mile." The "last mile" is the portion of your Internet connection between your computer and your ISP. DNSCrypt is our way of securing the "last mile" of DNS traffic and resolving (no pun intended) an entire class of serious security concerns with the DNS protocol.

There have been numerous examples of tampering, or man-in-the-middle attacks, and snooping of DNS traffic at the last mile and it represents a serious security risk that we've always wanted to fix. Today we can.

Why DNSCrypt is so significant

In the same way the SSL turns HTTP web traffic into HTTPS encrypted Web traffic, DNSCrypt turns regular DNS traffic into encrypted DNS traffic that is secure from eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attacks. It doesn't require any changes to domain names or how they work, it simply provides a method for securely encrypting communication between our customers and our DNS servers in our data centers. We know that claims alone don't work in the security world, however, so we've opened up the source to our DNSCrypt code base and it's available on GitHub.

DNSCrypt has the potential to be the most impactful advancement in Internet security since SSL, significantly improving every single Internet user's online security and privacy.

  • The orange dot has been replaced with a green one.
  • Some content in the preferences pane wasn't always properly loaded on Snow Leopard. This has been fixed

SheepShaver 2.3 - Emulator for Classic Mac OS environment.. (Free)

SheepShaver 2.3 - Emulator for Classic Mac OS environment.. (Free): "

SheepShaver is an Open Source PowerPC Mac OS run-time environment. That is, it enables you to run PowerPC Classic Mac OS software on your computer, even if you are using a different operating system. However, you still need a copy of Mac OS and a PowerMacintosh ROM image to use this program. SheepShaver is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).


  • SheepShaver runs Mac OS 7.5.2 thru Mac OS 9.0.4
  • PowerPC G4 emulation on non-PowerPC platforms, direct execution otherwise
  • Basic but portable JIT engine (x86, x86_64, mips)
  • Copy and paste of text between Mac OS and the host OS
  • File exchange with the host OS via a Unix icon on the Mac desktop
  • Color video display with support for run-time resolution switching
  • Run-time depth switching from 1 bpp to current host depth settings
  • Native QuickDraw 2D acceleration for BitBlt and FillRect operations
  • CD-quality stereo sound output
  • Networking: SheepShaver supports Internet and LAN networking via Ethernet and PPP with all Open Transport compatible MacOS applications

If you are using a PowerPC-based system, applications will run at native speeds (i.e., without any emulation involved). On other systems, SheepShaver provides the first PowerPC G4 emulator, though without MMU, to enable the execution of Mac OS Classic. Performance with the current CPU emulator using basic just-in-time (JIT) translation techniques is roughly 1/8-th of native speeds.

The following platforms are currently supported: Linux (i386, ppc, x86_64), MacOS X (i386, ppc), Darwin, NetBSD 2.0, FreeBSD 5.3 and Windows for x86. Please note that I am pretty careless of the Windows version since I am not a Windows developer. You are heartily invited to join the effort!

Little Snitch 2.5 - Alerts you to outgoing network connections.. (Demo)

Little Snitch 2.5 - Alerts you to outgoing network connections.. (Demo): "

Little Snitch alerts you to outgoing network connections.

A firewall protects your computer against unwanted guests from the Internet. But who protects your private data from being sent out? Little Snitch does!

As soon as you're connected to the Internet, applications can potentially send whatever information they want to wherever they want.

Sometimes they do this for good reason, on your explicit request. But often they don't. Little Snitch allows you to intercept these unwanted connection attempts, and lets you decide how to proceed.

Little Snitch informs you whenever a program attempts to establish an outgoing Internet connection. You can then choose to allow or deny this connection, or define a rule how to handle similar, future connection attempts. This reliably prevents private data from being sent out without your knowledge. Little Snitch runs inconspicuously in the background and it can also detect network related activity of viruses, trojans and other malware.

Version 2.5:
  • New Automatic software update.
  • Improved screen sharing support.
  • Fixes a bug in combination with sockets of protocol divert.

SMBUp - Reinstate and manage Samba on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.. (Free)

SMBUp - Reinstate and manage Samba on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.. (Free): "

SMBUp re-instates Samba as a service of your mac and provides a simple interface to manage the service.

The application is donationware. A reminder will appear upon startup once a day, this can be dismissed by checking the donation checkbox. The checkbox is based on the system of honor: It won't do any verification on whether the donation has effectively been made.

Keep in mind that while the application will allow you to create users for accessing authenticated shares it will only warn if those users have more than 15 groups assigned to them, even though OS X Lion won't allow such users to authenticate properly. Make sure you edit those users' groups to reduce their number.

The application is not crippled in any way if no donation is made, although donations are appreciated as they help us continue improving the software and providing new tools :)


  • Improved configuration settings UI for shares and globals
  • Added basic support for authenticated shares
  • Added basic user management (create, delete). Delete and re-add to change password.
  • Added basic support for HOME shares, pointing to users's home directories
  • Added safeguard to protest existing installations of MacPorts when uninstalling
  • Added checks to ensure process is not started until a valid config file is in place
  • Added basic update notification
  • Modified default config settings to better suit Mac OS X's needs
  • Added a global 5-minute timeout authentication timer (Mac OS X Padlock)
  • Added menu shortcuts for more functions
  • Fixed various bugfixes related to start/stop of Mac OS X native services.
It's seriously recommended that you re-set the configuration and re-add your shared folders after every version, if at all possible. This will be the first suggestion made in almost all support requests, as the tweaking of the default global settings is an ongoing process.

Donation Window not reset upon update of new versions, so if you've checked the donation checkbox it'll keep believing so. Still, if you feel the program warrants further donations don't let this stop you :) (Update incorrectly stated 1.3.0 instead of 1.3.1. This has been fixed)

Collections 1.5.1 - Manage your music, TV shows and movies.. (Demo)

Collections 1.5.1 - Manage your music, TV shows and movies.. (Demo): "

Collections lets you imagine all of your collections into a single application, a realistic representation of your tastes and passions. Catalog, browse and share your music, movies, tv shows and books with a single virtual library, Collections.

Adding items into your library couldn't be simplest.

The item finder allows to search by EAN, UPC, ASIN and/or any other keyword, for example title, author, director, actor and a huge etc.

With your iSight, place the product bar code in front of the camera and that's it, simple as that.

Version 1.5.1:
  • Enhanced support for Snow Leopard.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the properly edition of your borrowed collections.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the reorganization of your collections via drag and drop.
  • Fixed a bug with the Camera Barcode Scanner on computers with iSight cams.
  • Added an option to choose between multiple capture devices, if you have more than one camera connected to your computer, now you can choose which one to use as barcode scanner.
  • Help updated.
  • Apparently, there is so much confusion about adding new items to the library (sorry about that). The menu item "Find in Amazon…" has been renamed to "New Item…" (see File > New Item…), this is the primary way of adding new items (see the help to find alternative ways).

Delicious Library 2.7.7 - Import, browse and share your media.. (Shareware)

Delicious Library 2.7.7 - Import, browse and share your media.. (Shareware): "

Delicious Library allows you to import, browse, and share all your books, movies, music and video games with Delicious Library.

Run your very own library from your home or office using our impossibly simple interface. Delicious Library's digital shelves act as a visual card-catalog of your books, movies, music and video games.

A scan of a barcode is all Delicious Library needs to add an item to your digital shelves, downloading tons of info from the internet like the author, release date, current value, description, and even a high-resolution picture of the cover. Import your entire library using our exclusive full-speed iSight video barcode scanner, our Flic� Wireless Laser Bar Code Scanner, or (the slow way) entering the titles by hand. Once you have all of your items in your Mac, you can browse though your digital shelves, check stuff out to friends using Apple's built-in Address Book and calendar, and find new items to read, watch, and play using Library's recommendations.

Quickly importing your stuff into Delicious Library doesn't require a dedicated barcode scanner - you can use any QuickTime�-supported digital video camera, like your Apple iSight. Just hold the barcode on the back of any book, movie, CD, or video game in front of the camera and your item magically shows up on your digital shelf seconds later. Using the same technology found in $800 industrial-strength CCD barcode scanners, Delicious Library reads every single frame of digital video; seeking out, targeting, and instantly decoding any visible barcodes. This results in a seamless process of scanning that lets you import about 750 items an hour (assuming you can move your arms that fast). At that rate the staff of the new downtown Seattle Central Library could work together to import all of their 1.4 million books into Delicious Library in just over 5 hours.

Version 2.7.7:

  • Added support for PlayStation Vita game boxes
  • Improved appearance of Quick Look previews
  • Cleans up certain lint that would accumulate in the database
  • Stability improvements
