Apple on Monday announced a "Developer Preview" of Mac OS X Server Snow Leopard, a new version of its server software based on the same underpinnings as its next-version Mac operating system release. Snow Leopard Server, like its client counterpart, is expected to be released in September, and comes with a $499 price tag.
Mac OS X Server Snow Leopard runs up to twice as fast as the Leopard version of Mac OS X Server, according to Apple. It's a full 64-bit UNIX server that sports a number of new features, including Podcast Producer 2 (see image above), which helps to automate the creation and publishing of podcasts in conjunction with the Podcast Composer application, and Mobile Access Server, which provides secure access to firewall-protected network services for the Mac and the iPhone.
