Paraglyph Press, which distributes its titles through
fellow tech book publisher O’Reilly, recently announced the publication of Mac expert Gene Steinberg’s
“Mac OS X 10.3 Panther Little Black Book.”
The latest edition of his “Little Black Book” details the more than 100 new features found in Panther and offers tips and tricks for getting the most out of the OS. It’s aimed at both those who are upgrading to Mac OS X with Panther as well as seasoned users who want to learn about everything the new OS has to offer.
In the book, Steinberg covers what’s new with the Finder and Dock and explains how such new features as Exposé and FileVault work. He also covers the new versions of applications — such as iChat AV and Safari 1.2 — that run only in Panther. In addition, he digs deep into the OS and demonstrates how to better manage fonts, use new aspects of AppleScript to automate tedious tasks, keep your data safe from prying eyes by configuring Panther for multiple users, and more. Hands-on solutions are featured throughout every chapter.
List price is US$29.99. “Mac OS X 10.3 Panther Little Black Book” runs 550 pages.
