Give Mac OS X a tuneup

This week's newsletter offers updates for OnyX, QuicKeys, and Battle for Wesnoth. Get all the latest new and notable software in the weekly Download Dispatch for Mac.

Most of the time Macs run smoothly; however, once in awhile the computer might experience sluggishness or something else out of the ordinary. To rule out system problems, check out OnyX. OnyX lets you verify your Mac's Startup Disk and the structure of System files, and it offers several configuration tools to let you tweak the Finder, Dock, and other native applications. If you're a do-it-yourself type of person, or would just like a way to tweak some settings, OnyX might be just the tool you're looking for.

Also this week we have the latest version of QuicKeys, the time-saving software that streamlines and automates your work flow by letting you designate hot keys to perform repetitive every day tasks. Our game this week is Battle for Wesnoth, the expansive RPG with a lively community and active developers who continually improve the game.
