Some behavior changes in Expose and scrubbing QuickTime movies have been noticed but were apparently introduced in earlier builds. Finally, there are reports that stability has significantly improved over the previous build.

Snow Leopard will be released in September and will be $29 for existing Mac OS X Leopard owners.
