    This Snow Leopard Developer Preview Update is recommended for all users running the Snow Leopard Developer Preview Build 10A394 or later. This update includes general operating system fixes for stability, compatibility, and security.

    The update is 1.31GB, through Software Update, & I don't know personally what physical, in your face updates it brings, as its currently downloading.
    Updates:
    - Third party System Preference panes now work

    - New list view in the Dock

    - Quicktime Version 10.0 (42)

    - Battery on notebooks improved.

    - Safari is snappier (really!)

    - Overall system performance boost.

    What are the chances of seeing the new "Marble" interface in Snow Leopard? It is really a little sad that they have half-way ousted aqua for quite a long time now without fully replacing it with something uniform and consistent. :( Everything new they do from iLife to iWork to MobileMe to the iPhone etc. all use what I would say is the "Marble" interface. So why such a delay in Mac OS X? Is it really that much work to reskin? Would they possibly do it in a point update after Snow Leopard is out? :confused:

    Yeah, it's going horribly slow over here as well. Someone's bound to be finished soon, and we'll know everything before long, I suspect. Counting on no new UI, though.

    MacFly123 - I'm 100% certain there will be UI changes. It's not something Apple would through in randomly last minute (but I could be wrong).

    The reason, as someone mentioned before, is perhaps PPC Mac users may feel left out on the upgrade, therefore Apple would not offer a new UI to make it a soft blow. It's similiar with GM and their method of releasing cars with newer color options (they don't want a the two year old purchaser to feel cheated).

    I wonder if it fixes the issue I was having with the trackpad becoming unresponsive at times.

    I ran into an issue with the previous build where my trackpad would just stop working for a few minutes or until I plugged in an external mouse. I wonder if this build fixes it.

    Other than that I am super impressed so far with it.

    EDIT: Sorry, I didn't realize ttech10 already addressed this point. It's good to know that I'm not alone!

    Are there multiple options for "Font smoothing style" yet, or is it still just on/off as an option?

    can someone confirm MenuMeters works well now?

    Transmission works fine. Vuze seems to open fine for me too.

    iStat isnt working for me. The panes are opening in 32bit compatibility mode.
