Snow Leopard was released on August 28th, and at 1:37pm I received my copy and proceeded to install it like a well trained puppy. After installing, I think I was more obsessed with playing with / finding new features than even testing out any of my software. Here is a list of things that no longer work on my mac in order of annoyance.
- Witch, or more specificly Application Enhancer (APE) [my post on witch] – UnSanity, who develops APE has not stated if an updated is on its way or not. Judging by the state of their website, it could be a long while.
- top – ok, its not broke, but what jacked up version of top did they ship with Snow Leopard?
- Crossover, which I only use for Visio. – Although it appears Crossover 8 is fully compatible with 10.6, I am unable to upgrade, since I picked up my copy when they were giving it away for free. $40 fix
- Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client – Other people are having mixed results with this one. I need to find a newer version to try out, but it is not working for me.
- My tftp server – I haven’t dug into this one yet, but the client I used for controlling tftpd stopped working.
- My GeekTool Scripts – I’m still working on rewriting the one for my wireless ap / signal
- Little Snitch – There appears to be an update to this, altho I haven’t tried it.
- CandyBar Icon Switcher – I was able to update after installing Snow Leopard, and now this appears to be working just fine.
Thats all I can think of, I’ve yet to try a few applications, but everything I need for everyday life works minus a couple of things above. Not having my application switcher is really annoying and by far the thing I miss most. Although if you were to ask me how do I feel about upgrading? Overall I’d say slightly annoyed, but then again, I’m pretty happy.
Update:I forgot to mention that InsomniaX has been broken by the blood thirsty Snow Leopard, and the developer has released an update. Also, the maintainer of the tftpd gui app has on
support.apple.com regarding a fix for his application.
Update 2: TftpServer has been updated!
Update 3: APE, and PullTab have both been updated. So has Witch!
