    In an article on macscoop, Apple told that the next build will be seeded soon. 'Cause this article is nearly a month old, I think that on NAB they will reveil this build with all the secrets in it. When one looks at the rate of the builds that were seeded, it's time to see the new build soon.

    * Mac OS X v10.5 Developer Preview (build 9A241), released August 7, 2006.
    o Leopard Preview Update version 1.0 (build 9A241e), released August 31, 2006
    * Mac OS X v10.5 Developer Preview (build 9A283), released October 12, 2006
    * Mac OS X v10.5 Developer Preview (build 9A303), released November 9, 2006
    * Mac OS X v10.5 Developer Preview (build 9A321), released December 12, 2006
    * Mac OS X v10.5 Developer Preview (build 9A343), released January 18, 2007
    * Mac OS X v10.5 Developer Preview (build 9A377a), released March 1, 2007
    (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OS_X_10.5)

    And because in the same article on Macscoop Apple denies the fact that Leopard will be delayed, it's about time that they seed a build which is feature-complete.

    It's just my opinion, but when you look at the facts it wouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

    Aargh!...I'm so desperate for this...at least we MAY get to see what the 'top secret features' are...and I'm sure it will be up on torrent sites soon enough...not that I would use something like that:rolleyes:

    Is there really secret features or was Jobs bluffing?

    There still might not be and the hype has out-done the product this time.

    Hey, i'm openly pessimistic, what can I say..:D

    I think for him to say something like that, the features will be more eye candy and or functional stuff that is user interactive. By that I mean these features wont just be something good under the hood that only developers will see, but they will be worth the wait for the end user too.

    Yeah, but I think scepticism comes because of Jobs's other claims such as 3.0 GHz G5s...

    He didnt have much control over 3.0 GHz G5s though. Leopard he does. :cool:

    He would look highly foolish in the press if he didn't have any secret features, it would mean that Leopard would get bad reviews compared to Vista which wouldn't be a good thing.

    Well from a person I know that actually works at IBM in the processor department IBM DID deliver 3.0 GHz G5's.

    He said that Apple was always bitching about it one way or the other. They said that they had them working with Apple's current G5 cooling solution but then Apple didn't want to update their product line and the next time Apple thought they were too much and blah blah blah. Basically he said that they were done and ready to go in but Apple didn't want to really.

    Cough, iTunes. That must be a sure sign of things to come. I've noticed it's not affected by Shapeshifter themes... it must be this way for a reason.
    Aqua is getting broken with the whole unified-sometimes stuff. I'm betting they'll replace it.

    It is pretty interesting if you plot the builds numbers and the release dates. It shows that Apple are working very consistently. ( I have excluded the Leopard Preview Update version 1.0 and the build letters.)

    I hope it's Solitaire.
    The set of games bundled with Tiger is pathetic compared with other modern desktop OS on the market today.

    :p

    I don't have the data for that, would be nice though. I am assuming it follows the same linear pattern just higher up the graph.

    Note:If you extrapolate that graph to Mid June the build number is about 430

    Actually it's around 9a403

    I might add historically OS X has gone GM around 480..approx.

    I made a graph as well and did some calculations.

    377 - 241
    = 136
    136 "versions" thusfar....

    136 / 7
    = 19.42857142857
    19 "versions" each seed.

    480 - 377
    = 103
    103 "versions" from release.

    103 / 19.428
    = 5.30162651843
    5.30 seeds from release.

    Estimating from the graph, between 6/20 and 7/15. Since Apple promised a Spring release, the VERY end of spring. Like, literally the last day.

    Very true, especially because of all the hype created (mostly by people like us) and the speculation about a new finder, etc. that is created only because of Jobs' claim of Secret Features actually existing. He would let a lot of people down if they in fact did not exist.

    I think it was based on Peace's observation that past versions of OS X have been finalized around build 480. That's completely arbitrary, of course. It all depends on how well issue management goes and what crops up. But I think that estimate was when Leopard would bow, assuming that version 480 is the final build that becomes 10.5.0, and the current pace of builds continues.

    My observations were wrong.DO'H!..

    10.0---4K78
    10.1---5G64
    10.2---6C115
    10.3---7D28
    10.4---8A428
    10.5---9A403 ( current build.approx.)

    The numbering convention appeared to change when Apple went to Intel.
