Relative queries are really relative

An easily overlooked change to BeOS 5 is in the way the Find panel constructs relative date queries. Previously, a query for all mail sent “After last Saturday” might work today, but not next week, because “last Saturday” was being interpreted too literally, as a specific date. Now you can create queries like this and have them work forever — “last Saturday” will always refer to the Saturday preceding the moment of query execution.
