    Apple unveils OS X 10.9 "Mavericks"

    No more cat names!

    Sources: MacRumors / Ars Technica

    At today's WWDC keynote event, Apple announced the next version of its Mac operating system, dubbed "Mavericks" after a surfing area north of Half Moon Bay in California. Mavericks will feature many new Finder features including tabs, full-screen capability, tagging, and independent handling of multiple displays.

    Tagging items allows users to categorize and search for files more easily. With multiple displays, Finder will display a menu bar in each to allow easier control of all apps. Mission Control has also been modified to allow easy transfer of apps between displays. Mavericks will also display apps through a connected Apple TV.

    A new feature called Timer Coalescing will reduce CPU activity by smoothing out active processes and idle time while another new feature, Compressed Memory, will compress inactive memory to make free space available to running apps.

    Safari gets a revised Top Sites page and a sidebar with direct bookmark and Reading List access. Also visible in the sidebar are links shared by friends through social networks. The browser's memory and energy usage has also been improved in Mavericks.

    Keychain moves to iCloud in Mavericks to enable cross-device synchronization of passwords for use within Safari and other apps. Keychain will be able to suggest strong passwords and will remember credit card information to make online shopping easier.

    Notifications also get an overhaul with the ability to respond to iMessages or even decline Facetime calls right from the notification banner. After waking from sleep, notification banners for alerts receiving during sleep will appear on the lock screen.

    A Maps app will come to the Mac in Mavericks, offering search capabilities, Flyover views, and turn-by-turn directions and the ability to send directions directly to an iOS device.

    iBooks is also coming to the Mac in Mavericks with direct access to content available in the iTunes Store. Reading features include bookmarks, a night mode, and access to embedded multimedia elements.

    Registered developers can preview Mavericks starting today and the final public release of the OS is planned for the fall.

    New OS X uses Windows file sharing by default « Ars Technica

    The break from AFP as OS X's default network file protocol ought to help OS X mesh better with PCs, both at home and in the office. The operating system will even use SMB2 as its first protocol choice between two Macs running OS X Mavericks. However, AFP is still hanging around, both for legacy Mac communication and also for connectivity with "Time Machine–based backup systems." Time Machine, at least for now, remains bound to AFP.
    OS X 10.9 appears to run on any Mac that can run OS X 10.8 « Ars Technica

    The OS X v10.9 Developer Preview supports the following Macs:

    • iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
    • MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
    • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later), (15-inch, Mid/Late 2007 or later), (17-inch, Late 2007 or later)
    • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
    • Mac Mini (Early 2009 or later)
    • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
    • Xserve (Early 2009)

    SovietRussia is right - it's Windows 8 (Apple's second favourite OS).
