Republic of the Philippines LAGUNA STATE POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY Siniloan, Laguna Mac OS X version 10.2 “Jaguar” Submitted By: Ms. Rachelle May S. Rementilla Submitted To: Mr. For-Ian V. Sandoval Date Submitted: October 7, 2009 Mac OS X version 10.2 “Jaguar” - is the third major release of Mac OS X, Apple’s desktop and server operating system. It superseded Mac OS X v10.1 code name Puma and preceded Mac OS X v10.3 “Panther”. The operating system was initially available on 23 August 2002 either for single-computer installations, and in a "
, which allows five installations on separate computers in one household. The operating system was generally well-received by Macintosh users as a large step forward in the areas of stability, general speed enhancements, and the lineup of both graphical and command line applications available; however, many critics still claimed that significant user interface speed issues existed and that the operating system was still immature and awkward to use. Jaguar was the first Mac OS X release to publicly use its code name in marketing and advertisements, a practice that has continued in subsequent releases of the operating system. New and changed features End-user features Apple advertised that Mac OS v10.2 Jaguar had new features, such as Address Book – A system-wide repository for contact information in the updated Address Book. Bonjour – Bonjour (formerly Rendezvous) is Apple’s implementation of an IETF open protocol (Zeroconf) that allows devices over a network to essentially 'find each other' with a directory listing service. For example, a Bonjour enabled printer connected to a network, could 'find' and connect to a Bonjour enabled computer without any user configuration. This technology is used today in applications like iTunes music sharing and iChat Bonjour messaging. CUPS (Common Unix Printing System), the modular printing system for Unix-like operating systems. Finder – A revamped Finder with searching built directly into every window. Mail – An adaptive spam mail filter. Network support for Microsoft Windows networks – Increased support for networks in Jaguar. Apple added much more support for Microsoft Windows networks, and Microsoft Windows sharing protocols. Most of the changes were added behind the scenes, which included new Samba tools, and new printing protocols. Quartz Extreme – Quartz Extreme was added for compositing graphics directly on the video card, without the use of software to composite windows. The technology allotted the task of drawing the 3D surface of windows to the generally idle graphics processing unit, rather than to the central processing unit. Overall, the technology benefited the areas of user interface responsiveness and general speed enhancements throughout. Sherlock 3 – Web services (See Watson) Universal Access – Dozens of new features here. Increased speed across the entire system Journaled file system (first introduced in 10.2.3 Server, later made available to 10.2.x clients) iTunes logo was changed. New applications in Jaguar iChat – An Apple-branded, officially-supported third party AOL Instant Messenger client. Inkwell, for handwriting recognition. Marketing Jaguar marked the first Mac OS X release which publicly used its code name as both a marketing ploy and as an actual official reference to the operating system. To that effect, Apple replaced their standard Mac OS X box with a new Jaguar-themed box. Mac OS X v10.2 was never officially referred to as Jaguar in the United Kingdom due to an agreement with the car manufacturer Jaguar, although boxes and CDs still bore the Jaguar-skin logo. Today, all Mac OS X releases are given a feline-related name upon announcement, and Mac OS X releases are now referred to by their code name, in addition to version numbers.
