NetworkLocation 3 and Meerkat

Congratulations to on today's release of NetworkLocation 3! NetworkLocation is a great app for the mobile computer user that lets you setup actions and preferences that happen based on where you are physically. It can detect networks, peripherals, and now, even your geographic location. It's a great time-saver if you frequent client sites where you need to turn off Growl, coffee shops where you need to turn the screensaver on and the volume down, or home when you need to connect to your server and set your default printer.

What's more, we've written a plugin for NetworkLocation for Meerkat support! Now you can combine Meerkat's great handling of SSH tunnels with NetworkLocation's great detection of where you are and what you need to be doing. NetworkLocation can even set your system-wide proxy settings, so you can more easily use Meerkat for secure SOCKS-based web browsing when you're on the go.

If you want to grab the plugin directly, it's available on the NetworkLocation site. Again, congratulations to the guys at!
