Take Control News: Get Up-to-Date Help Customizing Mac OS X 10.5.2

Send Article to a Friend

We just released a new 1.1 version of Matt Neuburg's "Take Control of Customizing Leopard," which adds several important pieces of information for working with new options in Mac OS X 10.5.2, including how to toggle menu bar translucency and the reflective Dock, and how to take control of your stacks. It also integrates discussion of new aspects of the Time Machine interface and includes a few bits of advice - like how to put the Finder in all your spaces - that have come to light as we've worked with the shipping version of Leopard. If you're interested in learning more about customizing the latest version of Leopard, pick up a copy today.

We are especially happy about this release - free to those who own the 1.0 version - because had we created it as a traditional printed book, thousands of obsolete copies would be sitting on reader and bookstore shelves all over the world, and we'd have no elegant way to update those books to cover Leopard's changes. Those of you who already own the 1.0 version can download the update by clicking the Check for Updates link in the upper right corner of the first page.
