AOL UK is developing a Mac OS X 10.1 client, according to
That’s good news for AOL users in the UK as the company announced in November that it was stopping work on such a client.
“We said [in November] we’d watch the market — and it’s moved,” Matt Peacock, chief communications officer at AOL UK, said. “Mac OS X is taking off, it’s moving very quickly through Apple’s user base. It’s happened.”
He said the new client was a “completely different build, even from the U.S. version. It fully implements Apple’s Aqua interface for its user interface, Peacock said.
“The email and instant messaging features have been completely rebuilt,” he said. “There’s a new address book, and an entirely new look-and-feel. We’ve completely redesigned the Welcome screen.”
Other Mac-only features are also being developed for the release in response to user requests, Peacock added.
