    Default Snow Leopard UI Tweaks Emerge (Build 10A261)
    The leaked screenies of the latest build of Snow Leopard (build 10A261) show some interesting but fairly minor changes to the user interface.

    Put Back From Trash



    Probably the largest of the changes there is now more options in the Trash. "Put Back" returns the highlighted item(s) to the locations they were before you deleted them. Simple feature but very useful if you (like me) have a habit of digging in the Trash bin from some files you didn't really want to delete.

    Stacks Folder Navigation



    Stacks on the Dock was introduced with Leopard and is a great way to quickly view a folder of items from the dock. Grid view now has some extra nifty folder navigation. When you navigate to a folder from Grid View the Parent Folder is minimized up to the left hand corner -- reminiscent of cover flow.

    Keyboard Shortcuts Preference Pane



    The shortcuts are now organized in a more Finder-ish manner with the commands organized into various categories.

    That's about all for now. There is also a video of all of this in action here.

    Eh, not that exciting if you ask me. Only thing that I care remotely about is the new trash change. Hopefully they bring some more tweaks on the UI level for us

    No news = Bad news... at least we are getting somewhere... It's better than the "maybe yes... maybe no" on it being seeded to developers... At least we know that Apple did make some revisions (as minor as they may be) to the UI and it's not all "under the hood" as it were.

    i guess with that being said spending $100 for this upgrade as it stands would be beneficial how?

    installing now to test it out and see how it goes. i have an older macbook 13.3. 2.0GHz, 2gb RAM and duo core.. not the core "2" and i am finding it is freezing, locking and i have to hold the power button to shut it off. not too sure what the issues are, but i am going to see if this version fixes that.

    update:

    reverting to Leopard 10.5.5 (maybe .6) right now. only reason is that i have a stupid usb to dvi converter i have to use until i get my mini dvi to dvi cable in the mail. the converter i have, snow leopard wont install the software for it. so, being at work, i have a 24inch monitor i got spoiled with and will NOT work on 13.3 while here. hah. anyways, does anyone see any problems with installing the 10.5.6 update? i had it installed. but as my post says above, i keep getting freezing problems and the spinning wheel all the time. kinda agravating

    I can't wait for true 64bit support and fuller utilization of ddr3 ram spec! Snowleopard may rock (backend not so many frontend changes)!
    Search Google for "Custom Firmware 3.1.2" if you don't have a Mac and are using Windows!
