    You have to be a registered OS X developer, it's just a developer's seed, not a public release.

    Wow, quite a list What *aren't* they working on in SL? :eek:

    What (if anything) in here would indicate they are working on the increased CPU/fan speed issues some of us are experiencing in 10.6.1?

    its is quite a comprehensive list, but I have noticed some of the areas that they are concentrating on, especially expose (it could be crisper).

    Most (if not all) of the crap here at MR is posted as a result of somebody violating their NDA. :D

    With updates like this...

    Apple should start naming them.

    Welcome to 10.6.2 Sand Leopard!

    (and yes, I know they name them already)

    Oh wait, I guess you could say they already did.. and they called it Snow Leopard, and charged $29 for it.

    looks like the sending of my System Preferences hang logs payed off. literally hangs everytime i open it and i have to force quit to open successfully.

    good to see graphics and core animation are getting updated. Stacks are choppy for me on my Cinema Display but not on my MacBook Pro's screen.
