“A new build of Apple’s Leopard operating system released to developers this week introduces a handful of fresh features, but also carries with it a significant laundry list of impending issues that will need to be ironed out before any such public release is considered,” Katie Marsal and Kasper Jade report for AppleInsider.
Marsal and Jade report, “Reports that Leopard could be tracking for a release in just a matter of weeks seem far fetched, according to people familiar with the latest seed, who say the next-generation Mac system software remains very much a work-in-progress.”
“Those familiar with the software point to an extensive and somewhat swelling list of problems with the software, several of which are critical in nature,” Marsal and Jade report. “With a significant list of known issues and a ‘top secret’ bag of tricks still under wraps and broadly untested, it would seem incredibly unlikely the Cupertino-based company will be ready to push its latest cat out the door any time soon.”
