Submission + - Apple release details of OS X Snow Leopard (apple.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Rather than focusing primarily on new features, Snow Leopard will enhance the performance of OS X and is optimized for multi-core processors with a new technology code-named "Grand Central". Snow Leopard also includes support for the Open Computing Language (OpenCL) which is based on the C programming language and has been proposed as an open standard. The software limit on system memory will be raised 16TB of RAM and there will be native support for Microsoft Exchange 2007 in Mail, iCal and Address Book. Alongside Snow Leopard will be a new version of QuickTime called "QuickTime X" which is based on technologies used in the iPhone. Snow Leopard is scheduled to ship in about a year.
