Core Animation

Conor I know you saw the keynote from Apple. That Core Animation looks pretty sexy in developing enhancements for the fullscreen function. Can't wait to see what you come up with in the future. Woohoo!!

Of course, I am not sure how extendable the AppleTVesqe (New Front Row) interface will allow, but you might could just build a sexy plugin for that as well.

Yeah Core Animation looks very nice, but only Leopard users will be able to take advantage of it. So l am going to beef up the functionality and the interface and then once users adopt Leopard add some Jazz. It is truly amazing how simple Leopard makes things like Cover Flow possible. It's a bright future for Mac applications and Mac users.

Excellent point on it being Leopard only. Hmm, guess you will just have to build the fullscreen up the traditional way, and then maybe have a jazzed up version for Leopard eventually.
