Apple confirms Snow Leopard as next Mac OS X

It will ship in a year or so, says Apple after touting the upgrade to developers

Apple Inc. announced yesterday that it is working on a new version of its Mac OS X dubbed “Snow Leopard.” However, contrary to rumors last week that predicted an early 2009 release, Apple said the update would ship in about a year.

At its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which opened Monday in San Francisco, Apple shared its plans with developers during an event that the press was barred from. Later in the day, however, Apple released a statement and populated its site with some information about the operating system upgrade.

Bertrand Serlet, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, confirmed the leaked reports last week that the company would focus on stability and performance improvements in Mac OS X, rather than add more to the operating system. “In our continued effort to deliver the best user experience, we hit the pause button on new features to focus on perfecting the world’s most advanced operating system,” Serlet said in a statement.
