Minor Tweaks in Eudora 4.3.3 -- Qualcomm has released Eudora 4.3.3, a minor update to its widely used email program. Version 4.3.3 fixes a crashing bug on fast Macintosh systems (the release notes aren't more specific), and improves password security for folks who don't have Eudora save their email account passwords for them. If you're not experiencing problems, we recommend ignoring 4.3.3 and waiting for Eudora 5.0, which is currently in public beta. The update is available in two forms: a 613K patch that will update version 4.3.2 to version 4.3.3, and a larger 5.2 MB updater that will upgrade any version of Eudora 4.x to version 4.3.3. Eudora 4.3.3 is available only for PowerPC-based Macs; the latest version for 68K-based Macs is currently 4.2.2. [GD]
New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit
In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.
