    BabyGotMac posted some screenshots from the latest build of Leopard (9A343).

    - 5 new screensavers using Core Animation: Arabesque, Retro, Security, Spectrum, and Word of the Day. Gallery
    - Terminal with Tabs. Gallery
    - Parental Controls. Gallery

    Leopard is expected in "Spring" 2007. A recent Page 2 Rumor suggests a Feb 20th Apple event, but this has not been confirmed.

    Also, "Illuminous" is the fabrication of some fevered Mac fan.

    Nothing to see folks, it's Aqua as usual, people just need to get over it now so we can avoid the wailing and gnashing of teeth come Leopard's release. If there was gonna be a new interface, we would've seen it already. All this build-up for the inevitable disappointment is just silly.

    No, same UI. New Save As dialogue shows a "Media" entry in the Finder sidebar located under a divider below the usual Home, Documents, Images etc. When you click on Media it offers an iTunes-like list of Music/Pictures/Movies with associated tags for artist etc.

    The new screensavers looked cool but fairly unimportant and a little difficult to get from a static image.

    Errrm, I've just been checking out the extra WWDC keynote on ADConiTunes...there's something that worries me.
    At 1:00:02 (ish) in the video...the guy says, "We want your applications to be ready for 2008". TBH I'm a little confused...is this gunna be an addition to Leopard next year?...or is it a clue for when the higher res. displays will debut? What do you think?

    (You might want to check out the stuff before it to get the context; resolution independancy.)

    What makes you say we would've seen it already? What about the top secret features that we haven't seen? What about a new finder?

    In your mind, where is the line drawn between what is coming that we won't see until it's announcement, opposed to what's coming that we would already have seen?

    Apple didn't warn any developers of their switch to intel until 6 months before it actually happened (at Macworld, 9-12 months overall).

    Say Leopard comes out March 24th, that would give developers 6-9 months of it's release into the wild before a deadline similar to the intel transition. Of course, developers have already been playing around with this one. But there are certain things you just can't rush. Changes are possible, but in this case gradual.

    Face it, you can't just change the world in half of a year. The iphone took 2.5 years of planning, and another .5 before it's release!

    i disagree... an Illuminous UI (or any UI) isn't something that would have to be sent to developers... Apple could replace the UI themselves, and probably will... also, during last years conference Jobs mentioned that certain elements of 10.5 would be kept top secret until a final release...

    In my mind, a "new interface" would be a CRUCIALLY important thing to include in developer previews for developers early on, since so many developers use custom widgets (heck, even APPLE use a ton of custom widgets). Unless Apple want OS X to look any more Frankenstein-ish than it already does, it seems to me they'd want developers to be prepared so their UIs fit into the new look.

    I think the ZOMG TOP SECRET stuff was related to maybe resolution independence or something (which we know about, but have never been shown publically). I have a feeling it's far more marketing than "big splashy changes." Plus, we're running out of time before Leopard's supposed to hit. I'd bank on a release between March and May sometime. I just don't see too many pointers that would indicate something as huge as a major interface overhaul that so many people here seem to expect.

    I guess I just flat-out disagree with you, then.

    It is the date range Apple already announced for the ATN (iPhone) follow-on device with resolution independence.
