If you are one of those keeping a track of Snow Leopard’s development, you would be excited to know that this weekend Apple released its latest Snow Leopard beta with new pre-releases of both Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Server. The signs of the development were evident with new builds arriving with distinguished area of focus from the former build. These accompanied lower-level technologies and frameworks hogging greater attention than they usually do. This was followed by speculations that the Mac maker would give the Leopard OS a final look once again.
