Google has released a new update for their Gmail Notifier app, as mentioned in the google blog, but is not nearly as useful, especially if you have multiple gmail accounts like myself, as this OSX widget.
Some news out in Apple vulnuribilities today.
up2date has rollback capability and is already installed on all RHEL [RedHat Enterprise Linux] servers All that would be required to centrally manage a RHEL environment would be to push out an updated config file for up2date and point it to a central repository.Both yum and up2date are just front-ends for rpm management and operate with all the same mechanisms.
