Mac OS X The most recent pre-release build of Apple's Mac OS X Leopard operating system began making its way into developers' hands this past weekend, carrying with it a number of interface tweaks and a lengthy list of recommended testing suggestions. Screenshots and video clips taken of the new build, labeled Mac OS X Leopard build 9A527, show Apple to have reduced the transparency of the Mac OS menubar from previous builds, making it more opaque. Some developers had argued that level of transparency in previous builds gave the software - and Mac OS desktop in general - a cheaper, more rugged look.

Uh... wrong article?

It sounds like Apple is fully into the polishing phase now, so I guess we might manage to see 10.5 by October...

Exactly. It amazes me how people are surprised that they are ramping up since so many more internal resources have been redirected from the iPhone and back to OS X proper.

I'm gonna be somewhat surprised if they get it out by October. I've been on the latest build now for the last couple of days, and I have found several problems. The dock is buggy for example (Thunderbird icon disappears when new mail is recieved, and only shows the green circle with the number of new messages in it. Some programs never stop bouncing after being started, etc.) Furthermore, I've run into quite a few repaint issues as well, and some font rendering problems. They still have quite a few bugs to fix I think.

That gave me a silly mental image of an entire dock full of simultaneously bouncing icons.
