Snow Leopard screenshots
Following the release of the latest Mac OS X Snow Leopard build to developers, screenshot leaks posted on World of Apple show a few minor changes to the interface. The build allows users to navigate the folders from within Stacks, without automatically closing the Stack each time a folder is opened. Diving further into the Stacks will create a small grid window of the parent Stack in the corner of the screen.
All QuickTime features were enabled by default, without requiring an upgrade to QuickTime Pro. A Put Back feature can be used to return deleted files to their original folders, while the Keyboard Shortcuts Preference pane has been simplified.
Most of the running processes are now 64-bit for Intel-based systems, while the application footprints have been reduced. Users also have a choice to run applications in 32-bit mode.
Despite the changes in the developers' build, the public release still could contain other interface changes. Apple reportedly dropped hints to developers suggesting the operating system was on track for an early release. [via AppleInsider]
