Briefly: WWDC invite hints at continued Leopard focus; tix on sale

A digital invite distributed to Mac OS X developers this week offers additional evidence that Apple's June Worldwide Developers Conference will feature ongoing discussion of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

The invite reads "Save the date," and depicts a calendar window within Apple's forthcoming Time Machine backup software —one of the major enhancements slated to ship as part of Leopard.

Overnight, Apple also began accepting ticket orders for the conference. Those who register for the event early save $300 per ticket. A standalone ticket to the 5-day conference costs $1295, while a "buy four, get one free" 5-pack sells for $5180.

Apple is also offering package deals that include membership to the Apple Developer Connection (ADC). A WWDC ticket and "Select" ADC membership runs $1695, while a "Premier" membership includes access to WWDC for $3500.

Included with each ADC Premier or Select membership is the Leopard Early Start Kit, which provides exclusive advance access to a complete set of development resource to help developers deliver applications for the next major release of Mac OS X, including pre-release versions of Leopard.
