Doing the Leopard Moan

Matt Neuburg on the new Dock appearance, stacks, and the disappearance of Help Viewer and Classic:

Let’s pause to remember how a folder in the Dock used to work, as we kiss it goodbye forever. In Tiger, the story is like this. You’ve got a folder in the Dock. It looks like a folder. Click it and it opens in the Finder. Command-click it and you view it (in its containing folder) in the Finder. Control-click it and you get a hierarchical menu of its contents, the contents of its folders, and so on. Just about all of that is now gone.

Non-Transparent Menu Bar

Peter Maurer:

We did actually have reason to believe that this would work during earlier beta stages of Mac OS X 10.5. However, the final Leopard’s menu bar is opaque, and instead of letting the background shine through, it draws a blurred copy of your wallpaper.
