Cupertino, start your copiers!
Ryan Faas has an article up highlighting the upgraded Spotlight feature of Apple’s upcoming “Leopard” 10.5 release of OS X. It’s got some really cool stuff coming, including:
- Searching remote Leopard clients and server shares
- Full support for file permissions and ACLs
- Expanded “Recent Items” functionality
- Advanced search with a much more robust query syntax
- Use Spotlight as an application launcher (a sort of “Start Menu” if you will)
- Preview results and files without opening them
Those are all really great features! I just can’t put my finger on it, but for some reason I feel like I’ve seen them before.
