Open Transport 1.1.2 -- Apple has released Open Transport 1.1.2, which should provide better reliability over modem connections and some performance improvements that will be especially welcome to Mac webmasters. OT 1.1.2 must be installed over OT 1.1 or 1.1.1, except for the Performa and Power Mac 52xx, 53xx, 62xx, and 63xx series, which can install OT 1.1.2 directly (see the OT 1.1.2 ReadMe and notes for further details). OT 1.1.2 is available as a set of four disk images or as a Net Install, although the "OT Extras" set (included in the Net Install) is bloated by the inclusion of Acrobat Reader, making the download between 3 and 10 MB, depending which files you decide to get. OT/PPP 1.0 (see TidBITS-354) is not included with OT 1.1.2; you must download that separately. [GD]
Move the Dock Quickly
You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.
