    With Mac OS X Leopard a little over a week old, Apple has already begun making preparations for seeding the next revision of Mac OS X (10.5.1) to testers.

    No details on the revision are yet available, but Apple has traditionally pushed out updates quickly after initial release. Apple released the first .1 update to Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) less than three weeks after its initial release.

    Meanwhile, we are still waiting for the Mac OS X 10.4.11 update which has been expected any day now. Apple even references the unreleased update in a number of technotes.

    I want some LDAP fixes.

    NFS works great though! For once...

    cool, probably the TM-airdisk thing will be sorted out, and maybe we'll get back the star wars hologram effect (even though we can already sorta get it...). Truth is I'm hoping that they'll sort out some of the interface sluggishnesses.

    I've done an archive-install and then clean install and I still have major issues with freezing and horizontal banding (lines of random pixels). Aperture is all jacked up with the thumbnail previews not always displaying the correct image (to say nothing its problems with Time Machine)

    I really hope this comes out soon, I feel like I should have waited...

    Any updates are appreciated, although I have to say (*knocks on the wood*) that I don't have any major problems after doing a regular upgrade! And minor troubles just come and go every now and then, but nothing that would make me wanna throw the computer out of the window =).

    What airport issues are people having? I have an Airport Extreme Base Station and haven't had any problems.

    I HAVE had my bluetooth mouse and keyboard suddenly lose connection a few times since my Leopard install, but this may just be a coincidence.

    Apple Preparing for Mac OS X 10.5.1

    Hum,

    I'm having problems with Mail.

    Mailboxes disappearing.

    And 3 copies, in Mail, of "On My Mac" In the main screen left hand column.

    Why 3 copies of the same mailboxes?

    And if I delete 1 of the multiple "On My Mac" all of them disappear, I then have to go back to import mailboxes.


    Anyone else with this problem?

    What's wrong with it? It looks nice from my brief dabble.

    You and I are in the same boat my friend. :(

    Surprised how long it take the postal service to deliver anything these days.

    Not remembering the connection upon waking and then the dreaded "connection timeout"

    Oddly enough, my Airport has worked twice as good since upgrading to Leopard.

    It was shotty before and now works much better

    So far I'm favorably impressed with Leopard. Not bad at all for a new OS.

    But I have run into a few minor problems too.

    As IEatApples pointed out, Disk Utility won't repair permissions.

    And the Dock won't redraw properly after running a graphics intensive game. I keep my dock at the bottom, and after running Jinni Zeala, the Dock icons are covered with green blobs. Moving the Dock to the side and then back to the bottom clears it up.

    The Leopard installer did not retain my mail SMTP settings. I tried to send an email and the send button was grayed-out. After a little searching around I discovered that my outgoing server settings were blank.

    Of course, Finder no longer automatically remembers window settings - it applies one setting globally, unless you goto info and check a button to always use a setting for a particular window. This isn't really a bug, but a feature loss.

    Time Machine could use a few more user options, such as choosing the frequency of backups, having a backup now button, etc. Again, it's not a bug but a feature nice to have.

    Overall though I really like Leopard. Can't wait to see what's in this first revision.

    Please Apple hurry! I'm reluctant to start reinstalling all my apps in my clean install of Leopard. Because if this next release doesn't sort out a lot of my issues I'm going back to Tiger until Leopard runs as good.

    Why is it that when i want to rename a file it doesn't select the file extension??? This is almost as frustrating as when finder is in cover flow view and holding down the arrow key to move to a certain character while renaming a file and having cover flow scroll to a different file in the direction that is pressed. WHERE ARE MY OPTIONS TO TURN THIS KIND OF STUFF ON/OFF?

    ...but all in all i am a very happy customer.

    I really hope they fix the Timemachine issues regarding SMB, AFP (non-leopard) and serving off Airdisks.

    Flash is also really unstable, 99% of my Firefox or Safari crashes are due to it.

    Mail.app stops checking new mail every once in a while, the worst then about it is you don't realize it until you restart.

    Would be nice if 10.5.1 restored the functionality that Stacks had in the earlier developer builds.
