Mac OS X Leopard arives on October 26

Posted on Tuesday, October 16 2007 @ 19:14:11 CEST by

Apple announced on its website that Mac OS X Leopard will be available in stores on October 26.

Engadget took a look at some of the new features of this OS:
  • Users who bought Apple machines from October 1st on can participate in Apple's Up-To-Date Program, which provides free Leopard upgrades (for $10 shipping).
  • Boot Camp's beta Assistant software expires at the end of 2007, meaning Tiger users that want to continue editing / creating Windows partitions on their Macs need to do so before January, or upgrade to Leopard. Post-January you'll still be able to boot to the partitions you've created, though.
  • Users shouldn't expect expanded sync capabilities between Mail.app and the iPhone, although it looks like you'll be able to read iPhone notes on your desktop machine now.
  • File system is, indeed, still HFS+; OS X now supports read-only ZFS, as we'd heard.
  • Don't forget to peep the new features / changes list on Apple's site.
  • Call us crazy, but with a 6:00PM Friday launch we think you should expect lines -- but not for Apple to sell out.
  • A few features we're looking forward to (besides the obvious ones):
  • Google Maps integration with Address Book.
  • Tricked out AppleScript.
  • Automator UI recording / playback.
  • Japanese dictionary support.
  • New, easily-printable font books.
  • Front Row now looks more like "Back Row" (the Apple TV interface) -- too bad it's still not more like Media Center.
  • New AirPort menus that show WiFi encryption.
  • Disk encryption now supports 256 bit AES.
  • Built-in grammar checker. Lord knows we need it 'round these parts.
  • Tabbed terminal.
