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