First Look: Leopard preview: What's new in OS X 10.5

More details have emerged about Mac OS X 10.5, the next major update to the Mac operating system that Apple has dubbed “Leopard.” While Leopard won’t be let out of its cage until October, two Steve Jobs keynote addresses and Apple's Leopard web site have given us some idea of how this latest cat will behave.

In the following pages, we’ll describe what's publicly known about Leopard’s new features—and the lingering questions that we’re still trying to answer. We’ll also take a look at the OS X 10.5 features Apple first unveiled in August 2006, paying special attention to what’s changed since then. We’ll continue to update this collection of Leopard features as more information becomes publicly available.
