WWDC Wrap Up: Near Final Mac OS X Leopard

Turns out that controversial leaked e-mail from an Apple employee was partially correct. While the iPhone will be released June 29, yesterday Apple unveiled a near final version of Mac OS X Leopard that won't be scheduled to ship until October. The announcement was made by Steve Jobs himself at the World Wide Developers Conference in my homebase of San Francisco. It will be the sixth major release of the operating system.

According to Apple, Leopard introduces more than 300 new features, including a new Desktop and Dock with Stacks, an intuitive new way to organize files; an updated Finder featuring Cover Flow and a new way to easily browse and share files between multiple Macs; Quick Look, a new way to rapidly preview most files without opening an application; Time Machine, a new way to easily and automatically back up and restore lost files or a complete Mac; Spaces, a new feature to create groups of applications and instantly switch between them; and enhanced iChat and Mail applications, which easily allows users to communicate even more creatively. By creatively, they mean iChatters will be able to use fun holograph effects.

Another cool feature that they are not pushing on the consumer side of things is a real shared calendar feature in Leopard server. I'm very excited about this option.
