The latest batch of Leopard compatibility updates covers a range of software including veteran FTP transfer application, Fetch.

Fetch Softworks has announced Fetch 5.3, a new version for Leopard with an updated look that matches the OS, as well as better compatibility and support for under-the-hood Leopard technologies, such as the firewall and Leopard code signing.

REAL Software's cross-platform development environment, REALbasic 2007 Release 5, is available now. Alongside more than 100 improvements, the new version also offers Leopard compatibility for the first time.

Xeric Design has introduced a Leopard-savvy version of EarthDesk 4.1, its award-winning, real-time dynamic desktop map. This software replaces the static desktop with an image of the Earth showing current sun, moon and city illumination, as well as real-time global cloud coverage, allowing you to track hurricanes and other weather systems on your Mac. The latest iteration adds a new map option for a natural view of the Earth from space.

Brainstorming and project management application, Curio 4.1, has also been 'Leopard-ised'. The software now includes a Leopard QuickLook plugin for immediate previewing of Curio projects within the Finder. It also offers one-click screen snapshots for easily adding outside content to your Curio idea space, support for list collection titles and many additional features.
