|[6:00 AM] More OS X Utilities On The Way
Adding to their OS X ready collection of software, The Omni Group has released a beta version of OmniDictionary for OS X DP4. OmniDictionary is built entirely in Cocoa, and marks further support for Apple's upcoming operating system. According to the Omni Group:
OmniDictionary is now available for Mac OS X DP4. OmniDictionary is a client for Internet-based dictionary (DICT) servers, allowing you to look up words in various dictionaries. The new version is a native Cocoa-based Mac OS X application, fixes several bugs, updates the user interface for Aqua, and eases installation by no longer requiring a separate download and installation of the support frameworks.
OmniDictionary for OS X is available as shareware for free. You can find more information at the Omni Group web site.
The Mac Observer Spin: If only there were more companies like the OmniGroup... Despite the overwhelming numbers of (mostly useless) Windows programs in comparison, the Mac has an amazing amount of great utilities. Most of us take these great programs for granted, but that may change once Mac OS X is released in early 2001. At that time many of our current utilities may not work beyond the Mac Classic environment, but there will no doubt be many more excellent programs that fill the void, and of course many of our favorites will no doubt be brought to Mac OS X as we get closer to its final release.
In the meanwhile, it is great to see companies like The OmniGroup, one of the companies to have developed for NeXT, the basis of Max OS X, bringing their expertise to bear with a great sounding product like the OmniDictionary.
