    I'm still "optimizing"... fortunately I have a Windows maching (did I just say that?!) so if my OS X box goes down I have a backup... :)

    I'm trying to XBench each version on my machine... granted I only started on 10.3.4... but you have to start somewhere right?

    OMG I'm so happy, I can't wait to go home and install it. I hope that it fixes (edit: enhances) display drivers and optimizes OpenGL *crosses fingers*

    I do remember it saying it had some stuff for ATI and NVidia... so you might be in luck... I didn't read it all that much...

    Also iPhoto 2.0.1, apparently it now has AAC support and that ever-important update feature. I don't actually use iPhoto, but there it is.

    Same here. Hm, also an iPhoto Update 2.0.1 showed up as well for those of us not using v4, I guess. Let's hope these updates are a bit more stable. :eek:

    Well, I haven't seen any improvements (yet) but I can verify that my G5 rebooted and all seems well. I'll look into the changes now... as my iMac is loading the update.

    So why does it say "Build 7M34" instead of 10.3.5?

    It says both. You click on the 10.3.5 and it changes to the build.

    My XBench score went down 5 points... :( I'll rerun it though.

    I thought it was hovering around 40mb? Software update says its only 22. Did something get chopped out for a later release?
