I cn see why these additional OSX Leopard imporovements were not touted in the WWDC keynote. They would have bored every lay person to tears. That said, these are quite subtle yet fundamental tweaks. Gmail showed us the possible alternative uses of RSS by making your inbox an RSS feed, so embedding RSS features into the OS is a neat move. Same with iCal and addressbook. And enhancing the script-to-framework programming to Ruby and Python is excellent future-proofing - it means that whatever language or script you prefer, you can still use OSX natively. That said, it could also be a virus writer's heaven..!
