SuperDuper! update

Dave Nanian from Shirt Pocket Software blogs about the trials and tribulations of getting SuperDuper! updated for Leopard. The post includes some interesting details, for instance: The funky new directory hard links that Time Machine uses are available to other applications (I did not know that!)

  1. I’m glad they are taking this much care to get SD! right.
  2. I’m glad I don’t have anything that relies on the OS X internals to that degree.

Leopard: WebObjects Notes

Leopard is out and with it comes a slew of WebObjects changes. The release of WO 5.4, the official deprecation of the tool chain (which we’ve known was coming for some time), Apache 2 support, etc.

There’ve been some posts to the webobjects-dev list which I consider required reading. I don’t know if this stuff has made it into the wiki yet, so here are some links:

So, lots going on, and it all looks good IMHO. Should be a good year for WO.


  • The permissions on /Library/WebObjects/Configuration needed to be fixed otherwise wotaskd and javamonitor barf.
  • /System/Library/WebObjects/Executables/WOOpenURL seems to be missing. I copied it from the WO53 install and that works. Upate: It turns out that it’s not needed for WO54, it just uses the open command.
