iCal's icon reflects today's date


- The Welcome Video to Mac OS X 10.5 now has a new audio track and has been posted (link updated) to YouTube. (iTunes link to the song as noted by mycintosh)
- iCal's Dock icon now reflects the current date when iCal is not running (image)
- New Desktop images (1, 2)
- New Spaces Icon (image)
- Front Row has its own icon (image) and seems identical to Apple TV
- Menus and dialog sheets now overlay with a translucent filter, allowing you to see a hint of the underlying windows.
- Screen sharing "finally works right" and seems very fast at full resolution
- More user interface consistency across the operating system
- Gallery of screenshots
