SOOOO I installed the AIM early this morning and just now I noticed that AIM added a preferences pane in the settings app. Apps can do that? :eek:

Yep it can, I actually like this. It's a one stop shop to change any and all settings. Instead of having to dig around through all of your apps.

as apple has said before, developers use the same APIs that apple use so anything apple can do, apps can do too. i really like how they're all in one place though.

Yup! I think it was added in beta 4? can't remember...or maybe that was the sample code that was added in beta 6....

Yes, we can include Settings bundles with our applications that will add a preference pane to Settings.app.

That's not quite true. The APIs that are exposed to developers in the SDK are the same, sure, but we don't nearly have access to all the tools Apple does.
