Fission 1.6

Paul Kafasis:

The biggest update is that Fission now has built-in iPhone Ringtone saving, using the same method found in our MakeiPhoneRingtone application. With Fission, you can take any audio file in any format (not just AAC), and easily turn it into a ringtone/alarm sound for your iPhone! Just crop it down to 40 seconds or less, then choose “Save as iPhone Ringtone”, and Fission will handle the rest. Your file will be transcoding to AAC if needed, then passed off to iTunes and ready for syncing.

In OS X 10.5, you can build the same folder, but the aliases don’t work at all—if you hover over them with the mouse, you won’t see their contents. As shown above, in fact, a folder alias actually looks like a document, and there's no disclosure triangle as there is in 10.4.
