automatically "trims" the right and bottom of editors to be no greater than
the right and bottom of their screens.
-Snap-To Tools. Galaxy Tools and Galaxy Bar can now snap to corners to free
up screen space.
-Instant Short Cuts. Galaxy Scripts and Properties short cuts appear when
command+option (control+alt) keys are depressed while pointer is in title
bar or when "Show Shortcuts" is chosen from either component's action menu.
- Hyperlinking to Handlers and Auto-Complete. This feature is now in all
versions of Galaxy.
-More Action Menus. Galaxy Properties action menu and Code action menu now
contain menu items for Prev/Next Tab, Close Tab, Close All Tabs, Close All
Tabs Except Current.
-Strip out Developer Resources. "Save without Dev Resources" has been added
to Galaxy Projects mainstack menu, Galaxy Properties action menu and Galaxy
Scripts action menu.
