    I just finished watching the latest SteveNote, and there were clearly a few transitions and effects which are not available in the current version of Keynote.

    I'm assuming this means there is a new version on the way, which is good news since I think the 1.0 is a good beginning but lacking in many areas.

    I hope 2.0 fills in the missing gaps with PowerPoint, and takes the Apple magic components to the next level.

    I was also thinking this, as Apple was having that half price Keynote special on their website.

    It could be, but I doubt Steve would go through the trouble of making an animated gif.

    its definately a new transition there a few others too. There one in the keynote, I'm sure of it!

    I don't think it'd be a 2.0, more like a 1.2 or a 1.5

    I hope more develops on this, its a great app. I done a school project on it once! :)

    You think Steve is making any of his presentations himself? No way.

    You are absolutely correct on that point.

    I really hope the next version is not a 1.2 or 1.5 but a full fledged 2.0 release. I don't mind waiting until January for it.

    Apple should consider a "Pro" Version which has more themes and pro quality clipart and stock photography. Same version of the program, but throw in those extras in for small businesses.

    Either way, I hope we get a full upgrade, and Apple isn't pulling an "iCal," doing silly incremental upgrades which may be fine for teachers and consumers, but are seriously lacking for businesses.

    The promotion I was talking about ends around December 27th, so I would think that the new Keynote would come out during the SF Keynote like the original.

    I think the next u/g will be a 1.5. Keynote is a very good app on its own right now and they would need a hellofa lot to call it 2.0:

    *continuous sound rather than slide based
    *new transitions
    *ability ot play via shared screens in Apple Remote Desktop (think classroom with no digital projector)
    *more control over automated quicktime export settings such as individual timings for each slide
    *ability to do automated presentations from the app itself
    *more control over speed of transitions
    *ability to layer transitions (i.e. a cube left and up a the same time for a wicked effect (i use this technique in FCP4))
    *<sarcasm>steves face in the stock photos so i can put it on all my slides and make everyone in my school bow to it</sarcasm>

    those are a few of the things i think would need to be (bar the layered transitions) in there to call it a 2.0 release. Knowing Apple they will do this and a whole lot more before 2.0
