- Applications/Safari goes gold today (I hope they got the "new tab on URL open" thing implemented properly this time)
- Mail will finally get message threading (and a faster UI).
- A FileVault feature to encrypt the user filesystem
- Fast User switching (Windows-like, but without ties to Remote Desktop)
- A font previewer (I spent some hours yesterday trying to find a decent freeware one, so this is a nice touch for me...)
- Xcode, a heavily revamped development environment
- Built-in X11 and IPSec
Other stuff (not so interesting personally):
- Exposé, a neat (but as yet unproven) desktop navigation metaphor (no mention of "piles", BTW)
- The awesome new PowerMacs with G5 CPUs (yeah, OK, the megahertz charade continues - bigger, faster, better, hideously expensive... I want one.)
- iChat gets video support (and a very neatly designed hardware buddy called the iSight)
- iDisks can now be synchronized to several Macs.
- We get fax support. Yay. Yawn.
- Panther will be a paid upgrade ($129)
- No mention of 802.1x support (it's not a flashy feature, so Steve probably skipped it)
Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PC is now out. The only relevant features as far as I'm concerned are better VPN and Wi-Fi support (including an 802.1x supplicant). Here are a few screenshots I snagged of the new connection and Wi-Fi UIs:
