LMAO. I was checking software update every hour this evening because I was thinking that a new build will come out today. It looks like Apple is going to release a new build every Friday night. I wanted to be the first one to grab it before everybody else does so that my download doesn't slow down.

;)

Mine is 5 minutes left. That should take around 10-15 minutes to update.

If anyone run it before, please tell us if there is any noticeable change :)

Got it installed.

Not a lot of changes at first.
1) The blue borders are rounded and less bright.



2) Kernel is no longer in beta stage. (10.0.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.0.0: Sat Jul 18 23:35:54 PDT 2009; root:xnu-1456.1.22~1/RELEASE_I386 i386)

3) Bug: Open|Save dialogs sometime messed up the sidebar, adding extra space between Desktop and my user folder.

4) Bug: Put back still not working for items deleted from stack

I'll post more if I see anything else.

Snow Leopard Build 10A421 Seeded to Developers

https://www.macrumors.com/images/macrumorsthreadlogodarkd.png

Apple today seeded a new version of OS X Snow Leopard, termed Build 10A421, to registered developers. The update reportedly weighs in at just over 740 MB, roughly the same size as the previous version, Build 10A411, pushed to developers ten days ago.

As usual, Apple provides few hints about changes in the new build, although users with access to the new version will certainly be examining the update to look for any modifications.
This Snow Leopard Developer Preview Update is recommended for all users running the Snow Leopard Developer Preview Build 10A411 or later. This update includes general operating system fixes for stability, compatibility, and security.
OS X Snow Leopard is slated for a September release and will cost $29 for current OS X Leopard owners. Users purchasing a new Mac on June 8th, 2009 or later can receive the updated operating system for $9.95 though Apple's "Up to Date" program.

New quicktime logo.

EDIT: too slow:(

Are the "stickies" new?
No it's been around since 10.0.

There are even more 64bit extensions. The only non-64bit extensions are just the Mach6.0 and the rest of it.

The "Assign this app to Space 2" Dock Menu option did not return in this build.
