At WWDC 2003, Apple announced Mac OS X 10.3 Panther. Panther introduced lots of new features such as new window management Exposé, improved Finder, AES-128 encryption for personal files, enhanced version of Preview, faxing, faster Mail, and Font Book; a font management tool. Also, the iDisk access and synchronization was significantly improved. However, two new features got most attention: Fast User Switching and Xcode. Fast User Switching was one of the most eagerly awaited features that enabled users who shared a Mac to switch between accounts without quitting applications and logging out. Because of the graphic power of Mac OS X, the switching between users was animated by transforming the current desktop to a 3D Cube and rotating it to the new account. Xcode was a new development tool for Mac OS X applications. It improved the speed of compiling applications significantly, for instance by distributing compile workload across idle computers on a network. Panther was sold for $129 U.S.
