    MacCentral reports on a Mac OS X Office update today. New features include:

    Quartz text smoothing (requires 10.1.5)
    FileMaker Server integration
    ODBC integration
    Button face customization

    along with performance, stability and bug fixes.

    This hints that OS X 10.1.5 will be here as well.

    Quartz text smoothing!?!?

    I am confused. Does this mean that Office V.x is now a Cocoa app? Given the workload associated with converting Office from Carbon to Cocoa, it seems more likely that this means Apple has figred out a way for Carbon apps to take advantage of Quartz anti-aliasing.

    Anyone have any information on this? This could mean that all carbon apps could take advantage of Quartz AA! Mozilla, IE....

    Hm.

    Anyone know what has happened here?

    imminent release

    all this means is that the release is imminent ... it will be here today, monday. one might assume that because the service update specifies quartz anti-aliasing, that it will require 10.1.5, and that this 10.1.5 will be released monday alongside office.

    thanks. i went back and read the article again and realized that the service pack is dependent on 10.1.5 therefore I have to wait for the OS update before the Office one. :D

    10.1.5 does enable Carbon apps to use Quartz anti-aliasing. IE will also be able to take advantage of this.

    bad joke. its late.

    nothing like some apple hype to make deadline programming seem less painful.

    nice work on finding the link.

    fun

    i like the scalable icons at the top. I wonder if it will have smooth text when the rest of these updates trickle out.

    exciting

    everyone likes to dis micro$oft, but I gotta say if the get their bill$ into the pockets of programmers doing hot stuff for OSX i think that this OS will become everyones favorite.

    AOL loves it.

    UNIX programmers love it.

    Graphic designers (though, some kicking and screaming) love it.

    This will be everyones OS.

    Where do you want to go today? More like, what do you want your OS to be today.

    I would ask if the person you are trying to send to has a firewall up, that could easily be casing the problem. I know it did for me.

    Maybe something to do with OSX inbuilt firewall. Wait till OSX.1.5 comes out and see if it works then.

    NB. Nobody I know that is online to test it at the moment.
