There are enhacements, but I don't think they will base on the old code very
It is more new new techniques developed by Apple, that improove the
client-speed. If I understood the developers right, the new
Multi-Processor-Library brings a lot of advantages for programming tasks
like the dnetc, even for single-processor Macs.

There _is_ a 459 beta. Today there was a new build for the "internal circle"
of betatesters.
By now there is no public beta, but developement goes on.
