  1. Collaboration has worked already three weeks ago, when it was announced (I has tried it, and it worked perfectly for me and my mother, when we edited a Pages document together).

    What is different about it now?

  2. A couple things:

    You used to only see “X users are sharing this document online”. Now you see the names of who is looking at the document.

    You also can see their cursor location and selection as they move through the document, making it easier to collaborate with someone if you’re also talking with them (phone, iChat, etc.).

    Next I hope they add better rollback features. Currently you can rollback but it’s very difficult to see what changed from one version to the next without comparing docs side by side.
