    I've been noticing some things that weren't in the retail version of leopard that were in the previous builds. wanted to sort of compile a list. heres what ive picked up on thus far.

    Certain photobooth effects not there (really wanted that george washington mouth! damn!)


    screensavers such as the security camera one are gone. (also liked that)

    movie widget still doesnt work.

    any explanations here? minor features as they may be, its still kind of embarrasing to show something off in your wwdc conference and then leave it out of the final version (george washington)

    oh well.

    I really would have loved that security camera screensaver. I thought that was so cool :)

    Looks like there is no HDDVD Support, can't speak to Bluray since I don't have a bluray drive...

    That kinda sucks I was really excited about that one.

    on second thought this may not have been in beta builds, i just remember it being said.

    i never heard hddvd as an official thing.

    What about those buttons composed of vectors? the buttons seem pixel-composed to me.

    The two screen savers are there (retro and security) you just need to install (or rip from DVD) the developer tools.

    Once installed copy two files
    Retro.qtz and Security.qtz
    from:
    /Developer/Examples/Quartz Composer/Compositions/Screen Savers/

    To:
    /Library/Screen Savers/

    Enjoy!

    You have to install the Developer tools after you install Leopard. Once booted into Leopard insert the DVD and install it from there (not Leopard again).

    I'm not sure if it is against the rules or not otherwise I would zip the two files up (really small files) and attach them here.

    Edit:
    Here are the two files, just place them in /Library/Screen Savers/

    (mods, if this is against rules please delete or edit post)

    Agreed. My current backup backs up to an encrypted sparsedisk image on a 1.5TB SMB shared NAS. Would have loved to do that with Timemachine.
    It seems some hacks may be in the works to get time Machine to backup to anything (if I could just point it to a encrypted disk image, all would be good.


    It does seem like Apple at least handles Filevault encrypted user directories well: http://www.macintouch.com/leopard/faq.html#tm

    How does Time Machine handle multiple user accounts?
    Time Machine backs up all user accounts on the Mac (unless they are specifically excluded). It has special handling for File Vault accounts, creating encrypted backup disk images. These are backed up and updated only when that File Vault user is logged in.

    Although I'd probably want more info from Apple before trusting Time Machine with my sensitive documents.

    If only Apple had full disk encryption... sigh.

    So far it seems that the AES 128 and 256 disk images are secure, hopefully will be for a while.

    oh okay i got it now. any other goodies that are in the developer package? (that would be cool for nondevelopers i mean?)

    also...since weve been corresponding...is your movies widget working?

    i will say it is kind of annoying that when finder windows open up full length and the dock isnt hidden its annoying to resize them. really annoying.

    It takes 1 still picture at a time when it detects movement. Try moving around in front of the camera and it should take pictures and show the time/date it was taken.

    Now, if someone can figure out how to extract the R2D2 effect from a developer seed . :)

    Hey, is that Core Animation demo (the one that looks like the Apple TV intro) anywhere in the developer tools. When they showed off Core Image, Apple built a Fun House application that end up shipping in the retail product hidden in the developer tools.

    Hmm.. For some reason, I can't find a /screensavers folder? That's weird... I checked in my Library folder, and even did a few spotlight searches..

    That's weird.. There are 50 more folders / items under HD > Library > ... than there are in user > Library > ... , is that because I didn't do a clean install or something?

    HD / Library contains system wide files/folder while User / Library are user specific files/folders.

    I put mine in HD/Library so everyone who has an account on my mac can use those screen savers.

    Also, make sure you are looking for a folder with a space between Screen and Savers (/Library/Screen Savers/ for system wide or /Users/[User Name]/Library/Screen Savers/ for user only)

    No, It relies on new technologies in Leopard.
