    Is there any major significance to the semi-transparent menu bar? It's not like anything goes behind that...

    This is a really subtle feature that I'm loving: to move a window to another space, just drag the window to one of the monitor's borders and hold for a second.

    Also to make adium appear in every windows in spaces, just go to system preference, sapces tab and under apps assignment, click add and add adium, and check "every spaces".

    Can work with other apps too.


    And thats all i got so far. :\

    when pressing "return" to rename a file, it no longer selects the extention as well.

    Yah, that comes in really handy. I use that to have my Stickies show up on all spaces too.

    Do you notice a bug when you set Adium to Every Spaces? When I have multiple convos open, only the most recently open one shows up on all spaces.
