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.

Metrowerks recently announced the availability of CodeWarrior 9, the latest installment of its Mac software development environment. CodeWarrior 9 offers full support for Java as well as third-party plug-ins, including compilers from Apple and Motorola. Metrowerks also announced it has signed an agreement with Microsoft to provide support for Java and ActiveX (Microsoft's Internet version of the little-loved OLE). Not stopping there, Metrowerks will provide Java support for Microsoft Internet Explorer along with InterCon's Internet products. [GD]
