According to the caption on this screenshot in Think Secret’s latest Leopard gallery, ZFS is not present in the latest build of OS X 10.5. This is a bit disappointing because I’m excited about the improvements in ZFS. It would be a bummer if the OS X port of ZFS didn’t make it in the final release. I hope that ZFS makes it back into Leopard.
Regardless, I’m going to continue my project to build a Solaris server using ZFS for the shared storage pool. I should be able to post more about that later this week or early next.
I read the email announcement about the tracks at the upcoming Worldwide Developer’s Conference with some interest. Could this be a source of new info about OS X 10.5? There’s a whole track devoted to the next version of OS X, called Leopard Innovations. Unfortunately, it only mentions things we have heard of before like Core Animation, QuickLook, iChat Theater, 64-bitness, Synch services. Elsewhere, CoreData and CoreImage get mentions too.
In the end, nothing to see hear, folks. Keep moving. Leopard announcements will be coming later.
