I don't think it's posted yet but you can take a video snapshot for your user pic. I'm really scrapping the bottom of the barrel for new screenshots.

According to macrumors.com, Apple has seeded a new build of Panther. The new build is 7B21 and is not available through Software Update. I guess the first seed actually was just to Test SU and subsequent builds will only be available to those that actually attended WWDC.

Can anyone that has Panther and does not have a parrot on their shoulder shed some light on this build? New Features? Bug Fixes?

No, because it's a major update and now consists of 3 CDs.

So far all I know is that the servers are getting slammed and I am getting 3 kilobytes per second download. Will report back later on whatever is vague enough.

Stay tuned.

That is good news. However, from what I have seen, this menu is still not available from "System Preferences..." in the Apple menu (similar to the OS 9 Control Panels sub-menu). Maybe some developer could send feedback about that.

BTW can someone do a screen grab of that?

Just trying to bring back my question, above. So how does the FastUserSwitching work with dual monitors?

Thanks

The main screen does the cube effect while the secondary screen just fades.

Playing around with the other apps shows an amazing amount of tweaks. Take the Terminal for example, look into the Windows settings Apple has provided a number of default colour options (green on black, white on blue, etc), using a picture as the background!, keyboard actions (assign a command to a keystroke), connecting to a server using different protocols! and MUCH more. Terminal geeks will rejoice for sure

Textual programmes that use ANSI colour, such as the game Angband, now display correctly in Panther, thanks to xterm-color:

OMG! This is, in fact, a dangerous thing. You could screw up your HFS file structure. There have been known issues when HFS partitions died after they ran out of space. I guess it has to do with OS unable to write the latest FS modifications to the disk.

I suggest you file the bug report to Apple. Either Panther shouldn't install on such a small partition, or... I don't know what.

I don't know all of that. I think OS X has gotten a good deal better with disk hygiene (not that it was bad before) with Panther: when plugging in my iPod, it prompted me instantaneously that I had little disk space left, and that I'd better remove some stuff. Of course, I'm not down with that. My early 10 GBs are always filled to the brim. Although, come to think of it, I had to factory-restore my iPod yesterday.

i had to chop down the install (fonts, iapps, printer drivers) to get it to install. That picture and the error message was taken over a week ago, and im still chugging along on panther just fine.

And of course this is with a WWDC/7A** build right?

Otherwise, I'm sure the fine folks over in the 7B** build thread would like to see your screenshot.

No wait... It's Cocoa apps that refuse to go under the dock! I guess the finder is Cocoa! Hooray! Now we might be able to operate Metallifizer on it.

Check this out though: if you Command-Tab, it no longer uses the Dock! All the icons for all the open apps pop up in the middle of the screen, can you can choose them by Command-tabbing or with your mouse! That's great!

Sounds like a basic version of LiteSwitch X.

Guys. Seriously. At this point does it really MATTER if it's cocoa or carbon? I mean, if Carbon has gotten good enough that you can't tell the difference superficially and have to resort to odd trickery like the above to find obscure behavior differences, I think the debate it pointless.

Metallifzer puts Aqua or Metal into Cocoa apps, but not Carbon, so it does matter.
