  • A new special field 'dragSortOrder' that lets you drag records to re-order them
  • A "Save & Copy" button in the field editor for faster entry of similar fields
  • A new search suffix "_query" for google style searches like this: +word -word "multi word phrase"

3. Apple releases Safari 3.1 for Windows
Apple releases Safari 3.1 for Windows Apple recently launched Safari 3.1 for Windows. It's the first non-beta release for Windows and supports CSS Web fonts and animations. It also includes improved support for HTML 5. The browser also has that "Mac feel", from the way the interface looks to the way it displays its fonts.

I wanted to try it out for myself so I downloaded it right away. The first few sites I visited were Google, Gmail, and reuters.com, and all three seemed to work perfectly fine.

Now I'm not sure if Safari 3.1 for Windows renders pages exactly the same as it does for OS X, but at first glance, it looks like it. If you're a designer, this could make cross-browser testing that much easier. You could test all the main browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari) all from the same computer. Unfortunately, if Safari does render differently on a Mac, this could mean you'll now have another browser to test to make sure your pages work for all visitors.

You can download Safari 3.1 for Windows here.

Spanky Corners

There's another one I thought you might want to check out, it generates both CSS and images for you. You choose the colors and how round the corners are and your CSS and graphics will be created for you.
