Feature-complete Leopard

In brief: MacNN has reviewed the Proporta Gadget Bag as well as QuickSnap by Fastforward Software, and Apple has promised to offer a fully functional Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard beta at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The Campus MovieFest 2006-2007 has drawn with all the best shorts available for free, and digital media veteran Robert Sharp has acquired Digieffects -- a plug-in developer for Adobe After Effects and Apple's Final Cut Pro. Proporta's Gadget Bag ($45, shown at right) serves as four bags in one by offering four separate compartments for various devices. Fastforward's QuickSnap ($15) screen shot software captures picture from a full screen or just a section of the display.

Full Leopard at WWDC

Apple is planning to introduce a feature-complete version of its forthcoming Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard operating system at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco from June 11-15.

"At the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, we're planning to show you a feature-complete version of Mac OS X Leopard, and you can take home a beta copy," Apple wrote on the developer section of its website. "Be the first to get your hands on the Leopard beta and get a huge head start on development."

Campus MovieFest, Digieffects acquired

The Campus MovieFest tour has come to a close with more than 30,000 students making short movies using Macs with iMovie and Final Cut Pro; The best shorts from the festival are already available for free.... Digital media veteran Robert Sharp has agreed to acquire Digieffects and take over management of the company immediately; Digiefeccts and Toolfarm will still sell Delirium, CineLook, Aurorix, Berserk, Euphoria, and Fantazm.
