Apple Posts WWDC 2007 Session Descriptions
Apple has posted some details on the various conference sessions that will be available at the Worldwide Developer's Conference 2007.
The sessions are divided into 6 tracks:
- Leopard Innovations
- Mac OS X Essentials
- Information Technologies
- Developer Tools
- Graphics and Imaging
- Content and Media
The Leopard session descriptions are not particularly revealing, but does remind us of some upcoming features of Leopard that have previously been revealed:
- Core Animation is an incredible layer-based animation system that will revolutionize the user experience of your application.
- Mac OS X Leopard elevates video communication with iChat Theater, a new API that shares content from your application over video chat.
- The Calendar Store framework, provided in Mac OS X Leopard, is a simple interface to a user's iCal data. Using the Calendar Store, applications can read, create, and modify events and tasks with just a few lines of code.
An original overview of Leopard remains posted on Apple's site, but Steve Jobs hinted in August 2006 that several "top secret" features of Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) were being held back in Leopard and would not be revealed until a later date. Very few details about these secret features have been leaked to date, but many have speculated on significant visual changes to finder.
Leopard has been targeted for a "Spring 2007" release. WWDC 2007 takes place between June 11-15th in San Francisco.
