Symantec C++ 8.5 -- Symantec has announced version 8.5 of Symantec C++ for Power Macintosh, including support for Java, Pascal (via a Pascal compiler from Language Systems), and 68K development. The release features significant memory optimization, Apple Guides for users not familiar with Symantec's development tools, improved performance, and full support for OpenDoc 1.0 development. The estimated retail price is $400, but the software is free to Symantec C++ subscribers, and costs $149 as trade-up from several other tools. [GD]
Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily
Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.
