    New features of 10.5

    - Spring-loaded (with adjustable "springiness") folders in the Dock

    - Adjustable grid spacing for desktop icons
    [​IMG]

    - 16 desktops in Spaces.
    [​IMG]

    - Account Groups

    Lots more very cool shots at the site and more coming in all the time.

    Starting to get very interesting, I wonder how stable the DP version is?

    In the TimeMachine demo the perspective of the controls at the bottom were going back toward the wormhole or whatever that image was of (like the arrows). In the link to this site the controls are standard, up straight.

    How smooth is the spaces and time machine on a 32-bit? Does core animation cause it to move smoother?

    Oh, your talking about the controls on the bottom edge of the screen.
    I thought you where talking about the arrow controls.
    I like the straight up and down one better.

    Yes, you are correct then. :eek:

    The black hole looks different too. It's bigger and brighter.

    The reason this image isn't slanted is because there is only ONE restore.

    In the Apple image there are more than one

    I'm guessing that is because there is no historic data ie a backup has not yet been made. If you notice, the "Desktop" window doesn't expand backwards into time into the swirly big bang animation.

    EDIT: Peace beat me to it.

    Obviously the further back you are able to go the larger the worm hole must be, and therefore tugs on the controls more causing them to slant. I can't believe you guys don't think this is actual physics at work here. You wonder why Apple is hyping this so much. Because it is REAL!;)

    Now if only Time Machine could go forward into the future when I'm successful, wealthy, and have the funds for a Mac Pro + 30" ACD. :D

    Hurrah for kind developers! All the new stuff seen in these screenshots are pretty minor, but I'll take whatever news I can get.

    Is there any noticible difference in iCal's interface? All I see is the removal of the button that opens a drawer to let you see the search results.

    All I want to see now is a screenshot of exactly what the RSS feature is in Mail. Then all of my Leopard questions will be answered (well...except for what all those "Top Secret" things are).

    I actually like the ability to resize the grid showing the spacing of the icons. Not the most impressive addition!

    :D I was hoping to have loads of pointless little features popping up now Devs have copies. (And features with a point, too!)

    I was concerned in WWDC that Leopard, Spaces and TM aside, was going to be boring.

    Will we have a new finder, do you think? :(

    Thats a pretty significant uprooting under the hood. A ton of improvements. The groundwork has definitely been laid for Apple to pile on the features for Leopard.

    Its the small things that please me though. System wide grammar check? I love it.
