Open Recent Office 2008 Docs by Date

Office 2008 applications like Word and Excel now list recently opened documents on a File > Open Recent submenu. Choose More from that menu, and you'll get a multifunction Project Gallery dialog. Click the Recent button at the top and then select a date range in the Dates list to find files that were last opened today, yesterday, earlier in the week, last week, and so forth. (The Settings pane in the Project Gallery dialog lets you set how many recently opened files show in the File > Open Recent submenu.)

Apple Releases OpenGL 1.0 for Mac OS

Apple Releases OpenGL 1.0 for Mac OS -- Following up on its promise from last January's Macworld Expo, Apple has released OpenGL 1.0 for the Mac OS. OpenGL is an application programming interface (API) for two- and three-dimensional graphics originally developed by SGI and widely adopted as a basis for high-quality, cross-platform graphics development. In addition to its obvious usefulness to games like Quake III, applications for modeling and animation, data analysis, and simulations can also take advantage of OpenGL's features. OpenGL 1.0 for the Mac requires a PowerPC-based system running Mac OS 8.1 or higher with at least 32 MB of RAM (although G3-based systems are recommended), and includes QuickDraw 3D 1.6 and libraries to accelerate rendering on Macs with ATI RAGE II, RAGE Pro, and RAGE 128 video systems. If you're a developer eager to start programming with OpenGL, grab the 4.7 MB OpenGL 1.0 package and check out Apple's OpenGL developer materials; otherwise, gamers and graphics aficionados shouldn't have to wait long for OpenGL-based products to begin shipping on the Mac.
