References - xCuts

Description: xCuts is a utility for looking up Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts, something that recent switchers from Linux or Windows probably need to do quite a bit! This widget lets you easily browse or search the contents of its MySQL-powered database, which it accesses over the web using Ajax. The xCuts are organized by Category, Scope, and Object, and you can even drill down to a second cross-referenced level if you need to. Or just use the fast live search form!

xCuts includes tips on the use of certain shortcuts, and itís designed to let you copy and paste shortcuts to external documents. This resizable widget uses the terrific Script.aculo.us effects library to work its visual magic. When youíre done, click the title to compact xCuts down to a tiny lozenge for later use.
Note: xCuts does not cover character codes or text-editing shortcuts. Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later is required. Because xCuts uses a remote database, performance on dialup internet systems may not be adequate.

New in v1.2gb: Version 1.2g, October 2006:
- Fixed code that was causing xCuts to consume unnecessary CPU cycles even when idle. It should now run with 0 CPU usage when idle.
- Also fixed code that made it possible to lose the bottom bar of the widget (including the drag icon) while resizing it. In the process, I made xCuts somewhat slimmer vertically.
- Updated the prototype.js and script.aculo.us JavaScript libraries to their latest versions.
- Fixed JavaScript error that was causing messages in the Console log.
