Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail

Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.

If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

Apple Releases X11 for Mac OS X -- Leveraging the Unix core of Mac OS X, Apple has made available a public beta of X11 for Mac OS X, an environment that enables X11 applications to run within Mac OS X and makes it easier to port X11 applications to the Mac. The X11 package includes display server software, client libraries, and developer toolkits; an optional X11 Software Developer Kit for Mac OS X is also available. The public beta is available now as a free 41.5 MB download; the SDK is a 3.8 MB download. [JLC]
