  1. As I notice there is still no way to do something with iCal Todos which you found using the pre-defined action :(

    I wanted to mail the open todos for today to myself. I get the todos, but there is still no action included to get info out of these items.

  2. Also, the ‘Pause’ action no longer takes up 90%+ CPU cycles. It’s now down to a relatively tame 3.5% on my dual G5, nice.

  3. The Italian localization, a Radar bug filed months ago notwithstanding, still sucks.
