Apple manages to surprise the world quite regularly, whether it's with amazing computers and the iPod, or with software. Often, their competition just has to wait in fear and trembling to see what the designers in Cupertino have come up with next.

Other improvements concern the rather underestimated loupe function, better colour control, saving changes and integrating the iLife '06 and iWork '06 packages.
