New iWork applications with multitasking/AirPrint support (Keynote presenter too)

Choosing a page range in Pages

It looks like Macworld got a sneak peak at the upcoming iWork updates which allow you to print from Pages, Numbers and Keynote.

All three apps now support iOS 4.2’s multitasking features, so when a user switches away from them, their state is saved, then immediately restored when the user switches back. They also now support wireless printing via AirPrint, including page- or slide-range selection, setting the number of copies, and duplex printing. The Tools menus of all the apps have been simplified, with printing placed at the top level and more esoteric settings moved into a Settings submenu. Perhaps the biggest single other feature addition to the suite is the addition of presenter-display support in Keynote 1.3. When an iPad is connected to an external display for presentations, Keynote will now display the current slide, the next side, or your presenter notes on the iPad’s own display. (Sadly, you can’t use an Apple TV and AirPlay to present wirelessly.)
