Holding Your Breath? Apple is expected to announce this week that Copland (the codename for the next major version of the Mac OS) will not ship until mid-1997, some six months after the previous estimate. Apple also will not release Copland Developer Release 1 (DR1) to developers at the World Wide Developer's Conference (WWDC) next month. Although Copland DR0 has been available to selected developers since January, DR1 is to be a significantly wider release with a near-finalized API for managing backward compatibility with existing applications, a crucial component. Though this delay is not expected to impact third-party development significantly (it's too soon for products to be tied tightly to Copland), this is disappointing news. In the words of one Mac programmer, "Copland had better be cooler than hydrogen ice cubes if Apple expects me to wait any longer." For those keeping track, Apple originally announced plans in early 1994 to ship Copland at the end of 1995. [GD]
