Apple announced the release of iWork ’09 including Keynote ’09, the presentation component of the iWork suite. iWork ’09 also includes Pages ’09 and Numbers ’09.

There are plenty of changes in Keynote ’09, but the most noticeable of these is the new Magic Move option that allows you to add an across-the-slides animation to a single slide object. To do that, you select Magic Move as the transition between consecutive slides with a repeated slide object that could be a logo, a picture, some text, etc — and then watch as that object changes location, scale, opacity, and rotation automatically across successive slides. There’s a demo of how Magic Move works on the Keynote page of Apple’s site.

Other new features include a Theme Chooser, more transitions, chart animation improvements, the ability to use an iPhone or iPod touch as a presentation remote, and better PDF and PowerPoint sharing capabilities.

Pricing for iWork ’09 is $79 for the single pack, and $99 for the 5 computer family pack. No upgrade pricing seems to be available to users of existing iWork products.
