Apprentice 3 Available -- Following up on the promise of twice-yearly updates for its CD-ROM compilation of Mac programming and development tools (see TidBITS-263), Celestin Company recently released the third edition of its Apprentice CD. The Apprentice CD-ROM consists mainly of free and shareware development resources, source code, utilities, programming environments, and demos of popular commercial tools. Although most of the material is available elsewhere, having it all in one place (and with full indexes for Easy View, FileMaker, and On Location) makes the disk a valuable resource for programmers and the technically inclined. The materials have been updated to the latest versions available, including fully-indexed archives of valuable digests and mailing lists such as <comp.sys.mac.programmer> and the Mac Scripting Digest. Apprentice 3 is available for $35 ($25 for education users or updates from previous versions). [GD]
Two Shortcuts for App Exposé
If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.
