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.)

Mac OS X 10.0.4 Update Released

Mac OS X 10.0.4 Update Released -- Apple has updated Mac OS X to version 10.0.4, improving USB support, the Classic environment, and adding support for the new 17-inch Apple Studio Display monitor (see "The Flatter the Better" in TidBITS-581). The update is available via the Software Update control panel, or in two forms as separate downloads: a 12 MB package that updates Mac OS X 10.0.3, or a 19.3 MB one that updates any version between 10.0.0 and 10.0.3.

We're happy to report that, unlike previous Mac OS X updates, Apple has documented what's changed with 10.0.4. Highlights include improvements when accessing shared FileMaker Pro 5.0 documents via TCP/IP in the Classic environment, better PowerBook battery conservation in sleep mode, and iTunes compatibility with more third-party USB CD-RW drives. There are still a few frustratingly vague items in the notes, such as "a later version of SSH is included," when it wouldn't have been difficult to say which version was included and what it fixed.
