10.2 ( "Jaguar") verkar dock innehålla en hel del godis...
"Jaguar Server: Net Install and Net Boot support. Every single server can install off of that. Built in Open Directory (LDAP). Server-optimized Java Virtual Machine.
iChat: AIM-compatible messaging built in to Jaguar. Can create buddy list of anyone on the local network, as well. You can use your Mac.com name and don´t need AOL account. Sorting. "First time AOL has let anyone under the tent," said Jobs (although others have reversed-engineered AIM compatible chat apps).
Jaguar also features database technology which can be used for any app, system wide. Tied into Bluetooth. LDAP searching built in too.
Mail. Sophisticated rules added. Auto merge mailboxes (multiple accts merged into a single mailbox). Cross mailbox searching. Color highlighting. Security features added. VPN client. Spam filtering. QuickTime support.
Rendezvous. Dynamic IP discovery. Lets computers "dynamically discover each other and share them." Proposing as a new industry standard. Jobs cited example of multiple Macs working at home sharing MP3 files with iTunes between multiple computers. Demonstrated example of MP3 files streaming over AirPort. Works with any IP-ready device; built into Jaguar and will also be offered as an open industry standard that can be built into specific devices.
Inkwell. Handwriting recognition technology. Recognized by any application that uses text, even basic UNIX applications like Terminal.
It is not possible on older graphics cards like RAGE 128 cards, said Jobs -- that means it´ll work on newer iMacs and eMacs, but not on older machines, he emphasized. AGP 2x and 32MB video RAM are required for this new technology. Jobs said this puts Apple two years ahead of "the other guys."
Quartz Extreme: Takes the compositing engine in Quartz, and accelerates it in graphics cards. Combines 2D, 3D and video in one hardware pipeline via OpenGL. "Everything on the screen is being drawn in hardware by OpenGL." Requires AGP 2x and 32MB of video RAM.
Universal Access. Zooming supported via Quartz. Screenreader -- cursor over text will read it to you. Full keyboard access. Visual notification. They´re all available to developers in APIs in Jaguar. "
Intressant bild av Quartz Extreme-motorns kapacitet. På bilden ser vi en DVD-film spelas upp i bakgrunden samtidigt som ett annat programs chromade objekt reflekterar vad som spelas upp i filmen, i realtid och allt.
September, gärna igår.
PS. Något tyckte att vi borde kalla Quartz Extreme... QuartzGL.
