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?

I use messenger DAILY and at least three or four times a week i get mad at MICRO$OFT kuz i cant send or recive files on my mac. 3.0 seems to have fixed this problem. If anyone knows anything, please say?:confused:

I'm not seeing the Office or Messenger update available at the site yet.

Hope it's there tomorrow.

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.

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.

The previous version had smillies. You just need to know the key combinations

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.
