Is that because existing ObjC developers are *real* developers who don't _need_ any fancy garbage collection or fast enumeration? ;-) IMO, the new features look useful[*]...take-up of course depends on how quickly and how many developers are willing to leave OS X 10.<=4 behind. Which if Core Data on 10.4 was anything to go by, is quite a number and quite soon.


[*]in different contexts of course...garbage collection probably wouldn't be too attractive on existing code unless you know you've got a retaincount bug *glares at Cocoa Bindings*
