Now that the dust has settled on the initial install of Jaguar, here are a few subtle discoveries that have been enjoyable to find:
- iChat had left me cold until we started using Rendezvous here around the O’Reilly campus. Man, is iChat fast! I’m quickly changing my mind about this client app. Working on a quick Rendzvous article for later this week.
- You can cycle through your open applications using CMD + Tab.
- One Dock improvement that is more useful than I had originally thought — 10.2 includes a mini application icon in the lower right corner of each minimized document residing on the Dock. It has really helped me identify what’s what quickly.
- You can now “Hide Others” by using Option+CMD+H.
- iSub support!
- CUPS printer configuration is available via Web browser (like it is on other Unix systems): http://localhost:631/ (you need Web serving turned on in Sharing sys pref, of course).
- Software Update now has an “Installed Updates” tab that shows you what you’ve recently added to your system.
- “Get Info” is incredible. Wanna have some real fun? Do Get Info (CMD+I) on a QuickTime file, then watch the movie with Get Info’s preview.
OK, back to work … Thanks to Chris Stone for helping me compile today’s list.
