Snow Leopard OS X 10.6 10A190 Seeded to Devs
Update: World of Apple has leaked full details of this build of Snow Leopard. Some interesting things to note include Finder being fully written in Coca instead of Carbon. This build also uses HFS+ file system for compression for read-only files which allows reduced weight of Snow Leopard along with the stock Mac apps. 64 bit kernal is also under way but it only works for some macs in this release. There are a lot of other minor changes including basic Microsoft Exchange server support in Address Book, iCal and Mail. For full notes click here.
The latest release of Snow Leopard has been seeded to developers (something like four and a half months after the last release) as of this morning. The build version is 10A190 and the .dmg download comes in at 6.7 GB.
This version should take up a little bit less space once installed. We haven't found the other improvements as of yet. If you see somthing new shout out!
The purpose of Snow Leopard which should be released some time next years is to take the current Leopard OS X 10.5 and streamline it giving the end user better performance, taking up less hard drive space, and improving support for multi-core processors and GPU processing.
To get a (legit) copy of this latest build of Snow Leopard you need to be a registered Select or Premiere Developer in good standing with Apple which can be done via developer.apple.com

do we have to pay for this wen it comes out?

Yes, as far as I know, just like all of the other OS upgrades (minus 10.1) you will have to pay for a new copy of 10.6 "Snow Leopard". Most likely the price will stay around 120 like usual.
drewgaren: did you register just to post that? haha, I would take out your flamebrella right about now.

i dont think Apple should make the users pay for it because it doesnt have any new apps or anything. just a more CPU and stuff efficient OS. well thats what i have heard atleast.
