Apple Shows Off New Snow Leopard Features Of Mac OS X At WWDC 2009

Apple unveiled a slew of additions to its Snow Leopard update for Mac OS X at its World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC). The goodies include:

  • Microsoft Exchange support built in
  • Expose -- a Dock feature that allows users to manage desktop clutter
  • 45 percent faster installs
  • Half the footprint of the previous OS, allowing users to reclaim 6GB of hard drive space
  • Improved text selection (seems minor, but this can really speed up workflow)
  • Handwriting recognition for the trackpad
  • Safari 4 -- Improved speed, 100 out of 100 in the Acid3 compatibility test (IE8 gets 21 out of 100), plug-in crash resistance, http streaming, Cover Flow-style view of history
  • All major system apps running at 64-bit
  • Central Dispatch, to take advantage of multi-core CPUs
  • OpenCL standard to speed up graphics performance

Snow Leopard will be available in September as a $29 upgrade for Leopard users, with a $49 family pack. The standalone price is $129.

Any of these features excite you?
