The latest Mac OS 10 Leopard seed that was released on Friday to developers has introduced a number of notable visual tweaks to the operating system. Notes and screenshots have been gathered from public forums which reveal the improvements found in the latest version of Mac OS X Leopard.




iCal's icon reflects today's date

- The Welcome Video to Mac OS X 10.5 now has a new audio track and has been posted to YouTube.
- iCal's Dock icon now reflects the current date (image)
- New Desktop images (image)
- New Spaces Icon (image)
- Front Row has its own icon (image) and seems identical to Apple TV
- Menus and dialog sheets now overlay with a translucent filter, allowing you to see a hint of the underlying windows.
- Screen sharing "finally works right" and seems very fast at full resolution
- More user interface consistency across the operating system

Ooh, so we're onto visual changes. Just a nice reminder that launch isn't so far away any more.

The new intro music is awful - it doesn't even remotely fit in with the video. It's like they just pulled the name of a song out of a hat or something.

the new music the same as the new Imac commercial, the one where all they do is twirl around.

Ok, honestly, who cares about the intro music? You'll only ever hear it once in your life (if you're not a Developer), so what's the big deal?

Otherwise, the new icons look cool, and I have yet to find the new desktop pictures... Anyone? Hopefully ThinkSecret posts a gallery of some sort, even if it's a small one.

oh i'm very glad to see the little title balloon above dock apps now... it has always been a little unpolished, as text characters that hung low like "g" and "p" and "q" would always be slightly cut off at the bottom... this is nice...
