IMG Takes a Peek at Mac OS X 10.2
11:32 AM | Michael Phillips | Comment on this story

Today, IMG has posted a look at Apple's latest OS offering, Mac OS X 10.2 (A.K.A. Jaguar). Written by Jason Sims, the article covers features such as, Quartz Extreme, OpenGL enhancements and more.

Here's a clip:

Jaguar's graphics technologies have been revamped on several fronts. Most notable is Quartz Extreme, the new fully-hardware accelerated Quartz (2D) engine. Quartz Extreme makes your entire 2D workspace an OpenGL scene, in which each window is a textured polygon. It supports FSAA (full scene anti-aliasing) and handles compositing of all 2D and 3D layers. With Quartz Extreme, DVD playback and 3D applications show through transparent windows, instead of a flat grey background. It also accelerates the Quartz effects, such as "genie" and "scale" which are used when minimizing windows to the Dock.
Be sure to read the rest of our look at Jaguar.
