No need to be rude to people.


There was a new seed of 10.4.11 a couple of days ago and he expects a new seed of Leopard tomorrow. I personally, don't expect any more seed releases of Leopard to be made available, as RTM is likely to be announced next week.

Personally, i kinda expect a Final Candidate build of leopard that is highly optimised to be released prior to the final build.. cos this is a good chance for people to try it out and feedback to the dev team about minor stuff that needs to be tweaked or ironed out..

On 18 September we get a big PR event in London for the iPhone release on 9 NOVEMBER. Similar announcements are made on successive days this week for the iPhone release in Germany, etc. BUT there is still no official release date for Leopard, which Apple has said will ship in October (let alone November).

If there is no FRC very very soon, I'll be worried it slipped again.
