Bill House notes that iDVD2 was posted on the Apple Store today. The OS X-compatible version supports full-motion menus and buttons, background MPEG encoding, the ability to add soundtracks to slide shows, up to 90 minutes of video on a disc, and "stunning" new themes.
"I've been waiting for it since I understood that it would solve the issue of iDVD not working with external DVD burners. I have the Pioneer AO3 in a firewire enclosure that I plan on using between my G4 desktop and my Tibook. I contacted Apple (800-MY-APPLE) and was told "we have no idea if it works or not, but we're being overwhelmed by calls asking this question". Any chance of you guys posting an article to help those of us who want to find a solution?
