As promised heres a bunch more screenshots. Click on any image for full size. Photo of blue sky with white flowers can be found at: http://sarahbethlewis.blogspot.com/. If you use twitter, feel free to
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.
Icon for Folder Actions Setup now in the menu.
Some minor updates to the Language options.
The Input Sources preferences has gotten a refresh.
Keyboard preferences. Was the option to turn it off after a period of time present in Leopard? Don't remember.
The Keyboard Shortcuts have gotten a very nice update. Now a lot easier to navigate though and find what you need.
Finally! Mail.app not only works properly with IMAP but it also loads within a second.
Font Book loads amazingly fast compared to the old version.
Don't think the 'Use secure virtual memory' option was there in Leopard. Also you can disable Location Services if you're feeling paranoid.
Expose & Spaces preferences seem to have not been changed.
Nothing changed under Spotlight.
No changes for the Accounts preferences.
Same old address book, but loads way faster.
Interesting addition to the menu when you right click on any text on Safari. You can now instantly make a note out of the selected text or have it read and added to iTunes.
The voiceover utility has gotten a huge overhaul.
Some options for how the voice sounds.
The Airport menu now shows you signal strengths. Finally!
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.
Few icons updated in System Preferences.
Doesn't seem like anything changed here.
Most of the processes now run in 64 bit.
Dictionary app is still the same.
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!
Image Capture app has been refreshed to match the rest of the apps.
Time zone is now automatically set based on the wifi hotspots and/or I'm guessing IP.
Doesn't look like anything has changed in the Trackpad preferences.
Preview app in 'contact sheet' view.
Preview app in 'annotations' view.
Preview app in 'thumbnails' view.
Preview app in 'table of contents' view.
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.
After a few seconds everything including the top window bar fades out. If you pause the movie, everything fades back in.
The movie inspector window has been slightly updated.
In fullscreen, the controller has gotten a lot smaller and looks lots more 'crisp'.comments powered by Disqus
