Apple unveils final features of Leopard

Except for the new and spectacular Finder, the new version of Mac OS X has few surprises compared to the advance that Apple showed almost a year ago. The new Finder has a new semi-transparent main menu, a dock with a more three-dimensional look, and new windows with an iTunes-inspired look and feel. Finder windows, like this application, in addition to views by lists or icons, will have a “coverflow” type view with the ability to show a preview of any document such as movies. PDF documents, images, etc. without having to open any application.

A new dock

The new dock will allow incorporating “stacks” of elements that will be displayed when you click on them. Furthermore, Internet downloads will be automatically placed in one of these stacks in the dock to prevent them from flooding the desktop (where they are stored by default in the current version).
