Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

Free Java Tools for Symantec C++ -- Symantec released its first set of Macintosh Java development tools (codenamed Caffeine) for Symantec C++. Caffeine is free to Symantec C++ customers, and integrates Sun's virtual machine, Java compiler, and other components of Sun's Macintosh Java Development Kit into the Symantec Project Manager, letting users create and compile Java applets, then run them in Sun's Java Applet viewer. Caffeine is a precursor to Symantec's already-announced Java development environment Cafe, a stand-alone set of Java development tools that will also be free to Symantec C++ customers. The Caffeine release is about 5 MB in size. Caffeine is available for Power Macintosh, with a 68K version due "in a few weeks." [GD]
