Growl, Shoebox, SpamSieve

Growl, Shoebox, and SpamSieve are all now Universal binaries. Growl 0.7.4 is a notification system allowing applications that support Growl (browsers, Dashboard, email, games, music, phones, RSS, etc) to send the user notifications with new information. Notifications are emailed or spoken to the user instead of being displayed on the screen. Growl centralizes all the user's notification preferences into its preference pane, and offers complete control over which notifications are shown and how they are displayed. Growl is a free download for use with Mac OS X as a Universal binary.

Shoebox 1.5.1 is a complete photo organizing tool. Shoebox allows the user to search for photos with Spotlight, organize photos by content (who, what, where, when), burn, catalog, and shrink photos, among other capabilities. Shoebox offers downloadable category expansions and runs natively on Mac OS X as a Universal binary, costing $30-80.

SpamSieve 2.4.1 brings Bayesian spam filtering to Mac email clients. SpamSieve adapts over time to the type and location of emails the user receives, and is customizable in how it interacts with the rest of the user's mesage sorting rules. New with SpamSieve are various changes to the tokenizer and HTML parser to improve accuracy improved filtering of messages with atatchments, added Apple Mail settings, and SpamSieve shows uncertain growls when notification is suppressed. SpamSieve 2.4.1 costs $25 for use on Mac OS X 10.2 or later as a Universal binary, with Growl use recommended.
