O'Reilly Ships "Snow Leopard: The Missing Manual"

O'Reilly announced Thursday the release of Mac OS X Leopard: The Missing Manual by David Pogue, an updated version of the title for Apple's latest Mac OS X update.

"Steve Jobs said that Apple was going to 'put a pause on new features' in Snow Leopard," Mr. Pogue said in a statement, "but not everyone got the memo. An insane amount has changed--tiny, tweaky things, under-the-hood things, and even some big, routine-changing things. Writing the ultimate, complete, most entertaining guide to all of it was absolutely exhausting, but I guess somebody's got to do it."

New in the book:

  • Everything new: the rewritten Finder, 64-bit mode, Microsoft Exchange compatibility, build-them-yourself Services and keyboard shortcuts, self-waking networked Macs, and more
  • The Dock, the Mac OS X folder structure, and Mail: all faster and with new Snow Leopard-only features
  • Safari 4: the latest and best-performing Mac web browser
  • QuickTime X: the new multimedia player that lets you trim and share clips to YouTube, MobileMe, and iTunes
  • The coolest collection of tips, tricks, and undocumented shortcuts ever assembled

The book is priced at US$34.99 ($23.09 at Amazon).
