Flock 0.5.11 Released

Filed under
Software

Welcome to the 0.5.11 release of Flock.

We've got some new goodies since 0.4.10.

*New Online Favorites Service

Flock 0.5.11 has support for the Shadows.com favorite sharing service, and offers continued support for del.icio.us.

*Your Favorites, To Go - with Privacy

For each favorite, you can now choose to either store it online or keep it local. Better yet, Shadows lets you keep your online favorites private, so you can get your favorites from any computer without publishing them to the world. Shadows also stores your Flock collection structure. The net effect: if you're using Shadows, you can get your favorites "to go."

*Import Firefox Settings

Flock 0.5.11 imports your bookmarks, passwords, cookies, etc. from Firefox and other browsers. Flock tags your imported bookmarks based on Firefox folder names, and lets you find them from the ol' search box.

*Firefox 1.5-Style Auto-Update

Flock 0.5.11 uses the same cool auto-update system as Firefox 1.5.

Those same hackers have already worked out a free software countermeasure to thwart the program. According to Heise newspaper, the intelligence agencies of the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, have used HACIENDA to map every server in twenty-seven countries, employing a technique known as port scanning. The agencies have shared this map and use it to plan intrusions into the servers. Disturbingly, the HACIENDA system actually hijacks civilian computers to do some of its dirty work, allowing it to leach computing resources and cover its tracks. Read more
