I wonder what useful stuff one can put in an About box in a Mac OS X program.
Most basic the About box displays
- Program icon
- Program name
- Version number
More sophisticated ones displays
- Link to homepage
- Version control identifier
- Release history
- Software update status
- Upcoming features
I have seen programs that displays the licence owner info in the About Box.
Some About boxes shows a scrolling credit list. Others display fancy graphics.
With so much variety, what makes up a good about box?
