OS X Mountain Lion

[Apple announces the next major version of Mac Oh Es Ten, code-named Mountain Lion][link]. Among the features interesting to me:

* Messages, which I assume is the replacement for iChat, and integrates with iMessage on iOS.

* Flickr sharing inside the OS via the new “Share Sheets” feature.

* Notification Center, which is the Growl-killer we’ve all been expecting for some years now.

Full list of stuff at the [Mac OS X Lion Features page][feat].

Acorn 2.0

[Flying Meat Software][meat] release [a super update to their image editor, Acorn][link]. It sports an all-new UI designed (mostly) by [Brandon Walkin][walkin]. [Gus’ blog post sums up many of the changes][blog]. It is, interestingly to me, 64-bit and only runs on 10.6.
