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.

BBEdit 7.0.1 Available

BBEdit 7.0.1 Available -- Hot on the heels of the release of BBEdit 7.0, Bare Bones Software has released a free update to BBEdit 7.0.1. Among other minor fixes, the patch addresses conflicts with system-wide keystrokes under Mac OS X, improves BBEdit's new CVS support, tweaks processing of HTML and XHTML files, and offers a handful of FTP enhancements. You can read complete release notes on the Bare Bones Web site. Although most of the enhancements (and the focus) of BBEdit is for use under Mac OS X, BBEdit 7 does run under Mac OS 9.2.2, so classic Mac users aren't left out of all its text-munging goodness. The BBEdit 7.0.1 update is a 9.3 MB download. [GD]
