Frontier 5.0 Alphas for Mac and Windows -- UserLand Software has released the first public alphas of Frontier 5.0 for the Mac and, for the first time ever, Windows. Frontier is a free integrated outlining tool/scripting language/object-oriented database that has gathered a loyal following on the Mac for its capability to tie applications together via powerful scripting. Recent releases have focused on helping webmasters maintain complex and frequently updated Web sites (see "Spinning the Web Part 5: New Frontiers" in TidBITS-389). If you use Frontier to maintain a Web site, note that significant changes were made to Frontier's Web site framework. Bear in mind that alpha releases aren't guaranteed to be stable and may not be feature complete. [ACE]
Open Links from Apple Mail in the Background
If an email message in Mail includes a Web link which you'd prefer to check out after you've read all your mail, and you don't want to hunt for the link later, Command-click the link in the message to open a browser window in the background. Mail remains the foreground application, and the browser window can wait till you're ready.
