Another post-beta 3 change to Notes 7.  This was discussed a fair bit in the Partner Forum a few weeks ago, but neither Alan nor myself remembered to echo it out to blogspace.

A common complaint about Notes usability is the opening of the properties infobox when a file attachment is double-clicked.  In Notes 7, that behavior has changed.  Now, wisely, the development team has not succumbed to the pressure to turn Notes into a virus delivery system and launch the attachment.  Instead, a dialog box is now displayed:

One other tidbit in this area -- right clicking on the attachment gives you direct access to these options, plus "Open with..." and "Edit with..." options for choosing what desktop application is launched.
