    Default Apple Pushing up the Pace of Snow Leopard Development


    A new build (9J27) of Snow Leopard 10.5.7 has been seeded to Apple Developer Center Premiere and Select Members only a week and a half after the previous build (9J22). Apple appears to ramping up the pace of 10.5.7 development. Could this mean they are moving closer to release?

    One big change to note is with Quicktime
    The only window-based interface element in the QuickTime X Player is reportedly the title bar, which is reminiscent of the iPhone's semi-transparent black glass interface while also adopting hues from the video frames playing beneath it. However, this too fades away and disappears with the new overlay controls so videos appear to float on the screen with nothing more than a deep shadow surrounding all four sides.
    Seed notes from the new build (9J27):

    I'm really addicted to PC-gaming. You should try Far Cry on HDMI, fascinating!
    I've been waiting for a long time to buy a new MAC, and since then, i have been looking for the perfect one. So far, only one option is missing. I'm really tired of waiting, and getting Windows is like having a brain tumor.
