Leopard Roadmap: Feature Complete By August, Gold Late September


The WWDC build of Leopard is all over the Internet and judging by the numerous, illicitly obtained screenshots and video walkthroughs, you can tell it’s still a little rough around the edges. Apple will look to rectify this in the next several months, finishing up development in early September. The Leopard development roadmap has allegedly leaked online, so we can give you a month-by-month breakdown of what’s scheduled to happen.

By early July, Apple will have ironed out Airport, UI, API and Dev Tools issues, to be proceeded by the final, feature-complete build in August. Then Apple will focus on quashing the remaining bugs before the whole project goes gold several weeks later. That puts Apple on track for a late October release for its newest operating system.
