“Apple’s newest build of Mac OS X 10.5 distributed to developers is showing signs of nearing completion, but Leopard has not yet reached release candidate status with build 9A559,” Think Secret reports.
“Of note, Front Row has seen a substantial face-lift with 9A559 and along with getting its own icon in the Applications folder, like Dashboard, Expose, and Spaces, the interface now resembles that of AppleTV,” Think Secret reports.
“Also completely revamped in 9A559 is the VoiceOver utility, which gains Braille support and other features for the first time in Leopard… Support for resolution independence, which has rudimentary support in Tiger and had been rumored to be arriving with full support in Leopard, remains no where to be found. With Apple still planning to ship Leopard in October, the company has roughly two weeks to push Leopard to golden master status to allow ample time for the final product to reach retail channels,” Think Secret reports.
