Anyone worked out how to use the Externals Collection with Rev 1.1? 
I thought the features of the External Collection were being 
incorporated into Rev 1.1, but I can't see how and where.

In particular, I'm looking for the equivalent to "ext_openFile" which 
will open a file in it's associated application.  This works better 
than the "launch" command since it takes care of whether the 
application is open already.

I'd like to produce a Mac OS X version of my stack and the original 
External Collection is not usable in this situation.  Anyone found 
how to do this?
