Developer Examples, API Docs, and Other Things Removed in Snow Leopard

mac os x We know that Snow Leopard added some features to Mac OS X, but what about the things that Snow Leopard took away? Waffle has an updated list of things known to be removed from Snow Leopard, and there’s some interesting stuff on there. Here’s what I found to be most interesting (and surprising) that was removed in Snow Leopard:

* AppleTalk Printing
* Project templates in XCode
* Preinstalled developer examples
* Preinstalled API documentation
* ZFS Support

Now obviously some of these things were removed to save disk space, but I’m actually really surprised by the XCode and developer examples/templates being removed. Many beginning developers lean heavily on examples and now it looks like you have to fish around on Apple’s Developer Connection website to find this information.

Other noteworthy things missing include PowerPC support (this was expected) and the QuickTime Pro for $29, but check out the full list here:
