Latest build of Jaguar...

Recommended Posts

Dazzla    5

Some more info from Jaguar, the latest release of OS X. These screenshots showing off some of the Ink features being implemented as well as some other nice little touches.

Jaguar will ship with four levels of antialiasing, or font smoothing: Strong, Medium (best for Flat Panel), Light, and Standard (best for CRT).

Additionally, support for subpixel rendering on LCDs is very apparent. It makes a huge difference. Less tearing, and a bit less ghosting. It's getting better." Additionally, this improves gameplay on LCDs.

The view options of the Finder have an interesting new addition, called "show item info." This displays information under file and folder names, in small blue text. For folders, this is the number of items in a folder. For hard drives, it is the total and free disk space, and for MP3s, it can be ID3 tags.

In the Internet preferences pane, the new iDisk tab displays the amount of free iDisk space, and even has a button to purchase more space. It also allows you to easily set the access privileges for your public folder.

Packet Decoder is a new Bluetooth app included with Jaguar, but few specific details are known.

Network Startup is now an option in the Startup Disk preferences pane.

Finally, Mac Help has been completely revamped in newer builds, and includes lots of new documentation for Jaguar, including a "what's new" section.

Now, some images ;) :

"Late summer" is the official word, but knowig Steve Jobs, that will be end of August, early September. Possibly the last official day of summer.

I'm quite happy to be trying out the beta builds though. Reminds me of the Win XP beta's :p

Yeah, like iChat, umm.. err.. what else new?

I know they've got iMovie, iTunes etc etc and I guess it's a slogan now. Kinda like a seal of quality if you will :D , you're not really going to get a bad iApp.

Wow ! I have a strong urge to switch to Mac. I have had one sometime back, wasn't anything like this. It's beautiful with bright and pretty icons. The icon for address book is so realistic. If only I had the cash ? Lucky you, you seem to have the best of both worlds. Mac is out of this world most certainly. Mr Jobs could sell his stuff by the millions if he brings down the price.

Nothing has been mentioned of this yet. It will either be free, a $20 CD (free download) or a full price upgrade i.e. $99.

The Free download/$20 CD option is looking the most likely.

There is also the people who have bought OS X retail and have free upgrade vouchers, no-one knows where they stand.

I guess we're going to have to wait until nearer the time.

Doesn't make a difference, it isn't smoothing the fonts before your eyes. it's a screenshot of it so you should be able to see a difference.
