- Implemented Services on Mac OS X. You can now use the Services menu in another application to send the application's selection to Parsnips.
- Added "Tip Windows" that are shown before executing certain non-obvious commands. These tips explain a bit about what the command does. Each tip window had a checkbox to prevent it from being shown again.
- Better "Quick Start" information is now displayed in the Results Pane when there are no items in the database.
- New preference for setting the main window's background color. By default Parsnips now has a non-standard background coloe. You can turn this off in the Preferences.
- In previous versions, if you had an item you were editing then and did an operation that diplayed a new item, you would be shown a dialog with choices to Cancel or Discard Changes. in the new version you are also given the option of saving the changes before proceeding.
- In previous versions, many operations such as saving or deleting an item would revert you to showing all items. Now we try to keep the current search parameters and just upate the changed item.
- You can now Command-click a file:// URL in the text of the Display Pane to have it opened by the application that natively handles that file type. Previously his only worked for http:// based URLs.
- When requesting web pages, the user-agent is now set to "Parsnips".
- Changed the wording and button order in the License dialog to be more clear.
- If you had an unsaved change to an item and then clicked a different item (or did a search), you are to there are unsaved changes. If you cancel and then save the changes, you will get two copies of the item, one before the save and one afterwards. This bug has been fixed.
- Fixed problem where non-html files referenced via HTTP always had the "text" extracted from them even if they were binary files.
- Eliminated some screen flashing that occured when paging up and down through the results list.
- When running under Mac OS X 10.2.x, fixed a problem where a "phantom window" was shown when the main windows was closed.
- When running under Mac OS X 10.2.x, we no longer use a "Brushed Metal" main window type.
