UI Armageddon

Interface 1 min read

February 23rd 2003 will always be remembered as the beginning of The Final Battle.

That's the battle of UI design principles, by the way. <a href="">REALbasic</a> 5.0 was released today, 

and within its list of <a href="">new 5.0 features</a> lies deadly news for HIG aficionados:
  • Native Mac OS X Toolbars
  • Support for the Drawer window type
  • Metal Window support
  • Improved appearance of controls against backgrounds such as images
  • Quartz Rendering for all graphics
  • Modify the appearance of your application's icon in the Dock
At least we can look forward to plenty of amusing reading on <a href="">Perversiontracker</a>.
