Sonic Solutions announced that the newest version of Toast 7 will incorporate Blu-Ray support for the Mac. This represents the first Blu-Ray support for Macs. With the new format, users will be able to store as much as 50GB of data per disc. The first supported Blu-Ray drives will be shipping later this quarter. Little information about Apple's adoption of Blu-ray has been released. Analysts speculate that the mac pro (Intel PowerMac) will be the first to incorporate the new drives, but not for a number of months. Available rumors about the upcoming Mac Pro expect a traditional DVD-R SuperDrive, but the new machines are said to offer an empty optical drive slot for future expansion. The Mac Pro is expected to be announced on August 7th, 2006 at WWDC 2006.
