A transparent frame was added between the stack background and the shadow. Very pretty.

Stacks in grid view now allow you to jump from folder to folder without leaving the stacks. Note the 'Applications' button at the top of the grid. Very similar to the back and forth buttons you get on the iPhone when navigating screens.

Don't think these were in Leopard. Now you can easily set symbol and text substitutions.

No changes to the Printer & Fax preferences. D7000 series - great printer btw. Has built in WiFi so you can print from anywhere in the house without and the printer doesn't even need to be next to the router.

When changing the background only the thumbnails which are in view load, not all at once as it was before.

Bouncing for the icons in the dock is now unchecked by default. Well, maybe not.

Seems the 10A380 build was finalize a few weeks back as it had neither the newest Airport Utility nor iTunes.

The Keyboard Shortcuts have gotten a very nice update. Now a lot easier to navigate though and find what you need.

Font Book loads amazingly fast compared to the old version.

Java Preferences (maybe updated?) Not sure because I never bothered looking at it before.

Audio MIDI setup app has been updated. Much nicer now. Think the old one was the same since Panther or so.

Ugly 'Service' icon. :(

In the appearance preferences, the different options for text smoothing are gone and are now replaced with just one checkbox.

The Software Update app now brings up a small window while checking for updates instead of the full window that it used to bring up before.

You can now install the updates without even looking at what you're installing. What joy!

When you open a movie all you see is the movie, the window bar on top and the controls which are just like those when you're in full screen. Looks very similar to quicklook.

Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10A380 Part 2 Screenshots 44

After a few seconds everything including the top window bar fades out. If you pause the movie, everything fades back in.

Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10A380 Part 2 Screenshots 46

The movie inspector window has been slightly updated.

Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10A380 Part 2 Screenshots 45

In fullscreen, the controller has gotten a lot smaller and looks lots more 'crisp'.
