    In wwdc steve talked about how there are some features of leopard that he is not telling at this point. Does anyone know if the features that are "top secret" are on the developers preview or are they omitted?

    I'm guessing that some of the so-called secret features will be iTunes/Front Row media or phone-type related stuff... only because I can't think of anything that is more strategically important for Apple at the mo in relation to software.

    Edit: Or virtualisation/Windows apps compatibility, for that matter.

    Not personally tried yet, (need to get my hands on a friend's copy first), but it appears they have left out most of what is expected to be the secret features. If they had have included them, they would already be splashed everywhere. Even Apple know not to trust their developers to keep quiet or, it appears, keep their copies to themselves.

    Front row is not in the WWDC Preview.

    I would hope that due to a combination of that and the closed captioning support for the OS referenced on
    http://www.apple.com/macosx/leopard/accessibility.html
    means that the new Front Row updates will include simmilar functionality to EyeTV 2.3

    Front Row is in the WWDC Preview of Leopard, including Boot Camp 1.02 BETA.

    Oops, I was confusing Photo Booth with Front Row, apologies.
