- Update #1:
Java 1.5 was released early on Friday for 10.4. Just because it wasn't in the box doesn't mean it's not available. :PSource: Dan Dickinson in commentsHooray! I stand corrected, and a Java 1.5 update for OS X Tiger is, indeed, available.
You know, episodes of the new Doctor Who seem so short, after having gotten used to story arcs spread across multiple episodes. Lovely baby-faced aliens, though.
I was a little afraid that, after installing Tiger, I might not be able to use MS Word. On the contrary, it seems to be working even
vasterfaster (update: oops, Freudian slip) and better than it was under Panther!
New Quicksilver for Tiger. Catalog fed by saved spotlight searches, hooray!
No Tiger on Tiger. Bah.
- Safari's back to being non-ugly, since I applied Brent Simmons' suggestion to hack it in Interface Builder. Also, Mail is less assy since I found Cage Fighter.
- I think I'm really going to like
mdls, even more so than the GUI support for Spotlight. (Although, you can do raw queries in the GUI.) Poking around, I just noticed this little bit of metadata captured on files downloaded with Safari, found via
kMDItemWhereFroms = ( "http://www.otierney.net/files/cagefighter-1.0.dmg", "http://www.otierney.net/cagefighter/" )I can't wait until third-party apps like Path Finder and Quicksilver do a better job with the end-user interface on Spotlight's underpinnings than Apple's first offering.
