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="http://realbasic.com/">REALbasic</a> 5.0 was released today,
and within its list of <a href="http://realbasic.com/realbasic/newin5.html">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="http://perversiontracker.com/">Perversiontracker</a>.
