2012-01-31: MacWindowUtilsXtra version 1.1 released

This xtra is a MacOSX-only xtra implementing many functions mostly specific to Macintosh windows. There are a few functions not related to windows as well.

New in version 1.1 is the drag and drop support, an independent timer which can be used to overcome the bug on Macs not rebooted for longer than 24 days and the full support for mousewheel and trackpad scrolling events in all directions. The Xtra implements two file system dialogs for opening and saving files or folders which are safe to use when your projector needs to run in an application sandbox. Last but not least there are new functions to create WebViews to display and print HTML files. As this is based on WebKit it can display even more than just HTML. In fact any file supported by the WebKit framework could be displayed. That includes images, PDF files or even videos.
