So you have Office 2003 installed in a zillion computers and you need to open those new .docx/.xlsx/.pptx files? No need to buy Office 2007…
Microsoft has given you an “upgrade” path, for free:
For Mac Office 2004:
- You may have local changes that are not committed (so commit them!) or undo those changes.
- You may have a file that has been modified, but the contents have not been changed. ie somehow the file was ‘touch’ed. Thus git thinks that the file has been modified because its modification date has changed, but then its hash is still the same because the content hasn’t changed, so I guess it gets confused. Doing this command below updates the file stats for your repo index to flush out this second possibility:
git update-index --refresh
Adobe AIR 1.5 has been released today for Mac OS X and Windows. Linux is still at version 1.1.
So what’s changed that I can see so far? I couldn’t find any release notes (yet). For one thing, Flash Player 10 is now included. For the Mac, its at version 10,0,12,36. For Windows (XP), it’s at version 10,0,12,37. It does not however, update the Flash plugins for your other browsers.
All tests were done on Mac OS X 10.5.5 (the smaller number the better, of course):
Safari 3.2 (5525.26.12) — 6530.0 ms, result
FireFox 3.03 — 3211.6 ms, result
Adobe AIR 1.5 WebKit — 2523.6 ms, result
Here’s the user-agent for Adobe AIR 1.5 WebKit (Mac):
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.1.2 Safari/525.21
All the version numbers in the AIR 1.5 user-agent are older than Safari 3.2 (Mac) though, which is:
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_5_5; en-us) AppleWebKit/525.26.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.2 Safari/525.26.12
So the evidence is inconclusive for Squirrelfish. Still no SVG support in Adobe AIR 1.5 WebKit though, no surprise there :P
According to this new Adobe blog post, Adobe AIR 1.5 includes Squirrelfish, but does not mention the Extreme variant.
