August 1, 2002 - Earlier in the week, we reported that Apple was internally targeting Mac OS X v10.2, code-named Jaguar, to hit the final gold master stage this Friday. Think Secret has now confirmed that Jaguar has been declared "GM," as of early today or late yesterday.

The news came as a surprise to some developers, who expected a GM date more in line with Apple's own projections. Even more surprising is that the gold master build is 6C115, Final Candidate 1, which was built Wednesday. While the build runs well, many insiders predicted that several more final candidates would be seeded, possibly even up to build 6C120.

"They could have waited two more days," says one developer, who also pointed out that while this may seem early in light of the week-before-shipping GM of the 10.1 update, Apple wants more lead time to ensure that adequate supplies of Jaguar are in the retail channel on August 24.

As previously reported, Jaguar will not include the new iCal and iSync apps. While the official release dates for those apps were announced as September, sources say that Apple was seriously considering releasing them with Jaguar on August 24.
