What's New, Pussycat?
Apple have taken their "because we can" attitude and gone, in my humble opinion, totally mental. RailHeadDesign provides more details (no permalink, look for Tuesday, July 29, 2003 - 7:24am CST entry) of the Panther Mac OS X 7B21 build, including:
- "When you double-click an icon to launch a program, the icon zooms open (larger) and fades. The effect is like the icon is flying toward you, and itís pretty cool. =)"
- "The Finder prefs now let you better customize what you see in the Places area of the new Finder windows (disks, folders, network drives, etc.)."
- "The speed of this new build is dramatically faster than the WWDC build on my DP 1.25GHz G4. Interface elements are drawn much faster, etc."

New Panther screenshots in this AppleInsider thread*, including a movie of the zooming icon thing. Oh, and a screenshot of the new Finder window option -- very System 7.
