    The current version of Leopard the developers are testing... is it feature complete? I thought Jobs said there were "secret" features? Does that mean Apple will release more info about these features?

    I have a feeling it's going to be delayed as well. We don't even have a RC yet, and it usually takes about 2 weeks from the last release candidate to arrive in stores. I'll be very surprised if Apple makes it's October 31 deadline.

    It took 4 weeks last time, so I also expect that it'll be delayed. Again. They're definitely trying to copy as much of Vista as possible :p

    The last launchd mailing list showed them working on 9a558.


    Leopard will be on time.

    558 or 528? If it's 558 then that's a big jump from the 528 just released.

    Edit: I see that today's update, 528d, is a patch from last month's 528. 558 sounds about right then :)

    When you say "current," I assume you mean the latest developer build. Of course that build isn't the true current build.

    There is one little feature that'll crop up in the next couple days once the next big seed goes out to devs. Anyone wanna take a guess? Has something to do with iCal and the 17th... ;)

    Leopard has been feature complete since the build demo'd at WWDC, they've only been making tweaks and fixes since then. the "secret" features were showed off at WWDC and were anything but earth shattering.

    If you're judging by the build number... no. How many times do I have to explain this?

    9 = 9th iteration of Darwin, the core on which Mac OS X is based
    A = 1st branch of this fork
    528 = 528th build of this branch
    d = 4th update to this build

    For all we know, build 9A528d could be very close to Golden Master, or a few weeks away. Only the Leopard beta testers know for sure.

    In summary, the build number has nothing to do with the status of the build as Alpha, Beta, or whatever else.

    They can just ship it in Oct. That is what Software Updates is for.
