Panther Screenshots, Benchmarks, Details
- One user submitted XBench benchmarks from their PowerMac G4 867 in both Jaguar (10.2.6) and Panther (10.3 build 7A179) benchmarks (Download here) -- while there were some significant differences in both directions, very little should be read into them as Panther is still in an early stage of development.
- Other notes (most info provided by gorman):
- Panther UI seems faster (sheets smoother, window resizing very fast, mail, finder)
- All apps do remain running with Fast User Switching
- Expos updates apps contents live (in the small windows)
- Keychains remember settings
- New widget styles for many items such as tabs
- Command-Tab App Switcher has a nice Graphical Interface (FunMac shot)
- System Prefs grouped more Logically
- New Ports Manager for ported unix software (FunMac shot)
