CyberDog 1.1 Beta -- Just in time to fuel the OpenDoc fires at Macworld Expo next week, Apple has released a beta of CyberDog 1.1, this time for both 68K and PowerPC Macs. Apple is quick to point out that this is a beta with known problems, but the release also features AppleTalk browsing, numerous interface changes (including reverting OpenDoc's Document menu back to File), improvements to DocBuilder, and a unifying CyberDog application that launches all CyberDog documents in one session. The release weighs in at about 3.5 MB; please note CyberDog 1.1 requires OpenDoc 1.1 (which offers a number of speed improvements and weighs in at about 2.8 MB). [GD]
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
