Please could the window title be set to the name of the loaded file in Aqua.

My Linux box is currentlyoff-line, but I'm guessing that this may apply to Linux too.

I belive this is faily standard in all Mac applications (and possible Windows and Linux too). Currently the window title is just 'FreeWRL'.

A title of the form 'FreeWRL: <file name> maybe, although my opt for it to be just the file name (the application name is shown on the menu bar after all).

Or, even better,...

If a WorldInfo node is present in the vrml file and it contains a title, it might be useful to also use this tile. For example '<file name>: <title>'. or perhaps '<Title> (<file name>)' might look better. I belive this is the intended perpose of this field in the WorldInfo node. However, using this WorldInfo title alone might be confusing without the file name.

Having the window title as a configurable option (preference), allowing for the selection of WorldInfo title (if present) and/or file name would be good.

Regards,
Steven
