NCC-Mac December 2011 Non-Meeting

There was no NCC-Mac meeting for the month of December 2011. The next meeting is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, January 26, 2012, 4:30 PM at the Langlois Library. Happy New Year!


Here is a list of some of Apple’s software that was updated during the month of December. I copied these from <http://support.apple.com/downloads/>, which is a good place to go once in a while, but setting up Software Update to automatically check for updates is a good idea as well.


Keynote 5.1.1

This update addresses issues when working with large Keynote presentations on OS X Lion. It also includes improvements in stability and accessibility for Keynote.
