    saw it floating around.. whould would have thought apple would hit 10.2.6.. After 10.2.5 I would figure apple would have their people working on 10.3 for the preview at WWDC..

    Well, on the server I saw it, the copy they had was 3.2 megs. And they test the files, this wasn't in the uploads folder.

    rumored to fix:

    Improved reliability for the following applications, services, and technologies: Address Book, Graphics, Printing, OpenGL, and PC Card and USB Hub compatibility.

    USB kernal panic fixed, Unreal Tournament 2003 GeForce video improved compatibility and other minor fixes.

    I hope that they do not hold off UT2K3 until the update. :(

    Improved printing will be awesome! I'm having some insane wait times to spool documents. As always, OpenGL and graphics improvements are most appreciated. I saw HUGE improvements in QE performance with 10.2.5, and I'm hoping for the same leap with 10.2.6. Let's hope this one cleans up the remaining bugs so that Panther can bring some real performance! :D

    you know whenever an update occurs i never really feel that much of a difference...unless there is something SPECIFIC being implemented... but i never really notice my comptuer is faster or slower.

    Ah yes! I knew Jaguar would have a 10.2.6 update!

    I seem to recall a great amount of doubt from people when I mentioned the possibility of a 10.2.6 update in an earlier thread....

    Victory is mine! Ha ha ha!

    Anyway, I'm going to assume this will be the final update before Panther's release. Does anyone think we will see a 10.2.7 update? Right now, I'm betting that September will be the Panther release month, and 10.2.6 will be available in June. Any takers?

    Me neither. I think it's either hope and expectation causing an effect of a speed up or the fact that the installer rebinds everything. I keep my system extremely clean and have never seen a speedup from an update other then 10.1->10.2.

    Nah, the way I see (read: make up) things, the 10.2.x series will end at 10.2.6, but 10.3 will make it up to 10.3.7. Observe:

    10.0.0 --> 10.0.4
    10.1.0 --> 10.1.5
    10.2.0 --> 10.2.6
    so...
    10.3.0 --> 10.3.7

    Eh? Eh? :D

    Yeah, so, it's nutty. Sorry, I just finished my last grad school exam ever (most likely)!!! Woo. :) :cool:

    uh.... wtf?

    Where are you getting this? ;) :D

    Anyway, Another OpenGL update?? We are getting a little hasty aren't we?

    I guess it fixes some UT2K3 problem or something, BTW, They NEED to release it!

    You obviously don't drink the official MacRumors brand of Kool-Aid! - j

    :D

    Besides, my system would speed up more if Adobe optimized their apps better. Have they lost the ability to make responsive applications? I've seen fewer dogs in a kennel...

    What's with this UT2K3 talk? Sounds really strange to me. I doubt Apple would actually cite a specific game in an update.

    Re: 10.2.6

    Maybe something to do with the audio bug crash and a few other USB problems. I don't think Apple intended a x.x.6 update.

    I hear 10.2.6 will remove even more debug code and make everyone's system a lot snappier.

    Kernal panic, eh

    Kernal panics sure are nasty.

    The update description is Apple-like, but the typo makes the description sound dubious. Hoax-y, even.

    No sh*t. It's killing me. The prime reason I am forced to upgrade my system is friggin' Adobe. It also doesn't help that I've got a minute and a half lag when typing more than one sentence of text into a template in Dreamweaver. No matter, though. Macromedia would have a hard time releasing software that's as pitiful as Adobe's latest efforts in terms of performance. :rolleyes:

    It would not be the first time they have mentioned a specific game or program.

    About typos, search through apples support site they are all over in these update texts.

    I hope 10.2.6 is true and that it fixes what is stated in the rumor.

    10.2.5 made my system slower. However I just tried System Optimizer X 4.0.1 and it sped things up considerably. BTW, and off topic?: Has anybody noticed the .mac service being up and down today? Extra slow for me... also there are periods while connecting times out.

    .mac has always been as slow as heck, or at least that's what i remember from iTools.

    I wonder if this will address the problem I get with sleeping the comp with a 3.5" floppy drive (I know, I know......school requirement....) attached.

    It sleeps, but cannot be woken, even though the little LED pulses normally. A hard reset is the only way to get it started.

    This also happens with my Powermate.....
