A few more minor things of interest that I noticed throughout SL. Nothing really major though.
Last time I posted the redesigned 'Image Capture' app I forgot to connect my camera to make a proper screenshot, so here it is with content in it.
When you have apache running and visit your own computer's IP, instead of getting the default Apache page, you just get a 'It works!' page instead.
Some great news for developers, the version of PHP currently running in Snow Leopard is 5.2.8. Python is at 2.6.1, Ruby at 184.108.40.206 and Perl is 5.10.0.
On some events in iCal, I'm getting an icon with the person with a question mark next to him. Still haven't figured out what they're for, but as far as I know they weren't in iCal in 10.5.
In iChat when some contacts have multiple usernames assigned to their name, you get a much cleaner interface for picking which username you want to chat with.
Speaking of iChat, its now version 5.0, up from 4.0.8 in Leopard.
Also, another cool thing is that 'Correct Spelling Automatically' is a system wide service, and in turn works in every single application. Just as the name suggests, what it does it automatically corrects your spelling, like Microsoft Word. Very handy, but at the same time can get a bit annoying as it corrects things like 'brb' to 'bribe'. ^_^
Front Row hasn't gotten any updates at this time. I personally am really hoping Apple will update it to something along the lines of what they did with the Apple TV UI.
When you enable the 'Character Viewer' menu item without enabling any additional input languages you just get the icon for the Character viewer (thats the one between the volume and battery icons), not the flag icon for the language you currently have selected. When you do enable additional languages, the icon switches to the flags.comments powered by Disqus
