FS Protection for Mac build 15758 released
We are pleased to announce a new release of the FS Protection for Mac. This update is now available for download from My FS Protection, and will be delivered automatically to existing installations this afternoon. Note that this version drops support for OS X 10.8. If you are running OS X 10.8 you can continue using the product and it will continue receiving database updates. You will however not receive this update or other product updates in the future. Updating OS X is recommended.
- When content is blocked by parental control, the block page now shows the reason (category) for the block
- Categories for restricted content are shown in search results when clicking the rating icon.
- Refined UI for adding, editing & removing URLs to whitelist in application preferences
- Updating web sites exceptions list (e.g. allowing a web site) requires administrator authorization
- Parental control categories have descriptive icons
- This version does not preserve the list of allowed web sites
