Before Copland, Harmony

Send Article to a Friend

Before Copland, Harmony -- Following Apple's announcement that Copland (now being referred to as "Mac OS 8") would not ship until mid-1997, Apple surprised no one at WWDC by speculating there would be a pre-Copland release of the Mac OS, currently codenamed "Harmony." Scheduled for release in roughly the first half of 1997, Harmony should wrap QuickDraw 3D, QuickTime 2.5, OpenDoc, Cyberdog, and some Copland technologies into the system. I've also heard Harmony will carry through on Apple's recently announced plans to build a Web server into the Mac OS, and incorporate Java support (last week, Apple licensed Natural Intelligence's Java implementation in an effort to get better performance and reduce dependencies on Sun).
