    After seeding Leopard 9A528d just yesterday, Apple has released 9A559 to ADC members tonight. Yesterday's update appears to have been primarily testing Leopard's Software Update mechanism.

    The 6.55GB download lists only two known issues for Leopard. The two issues described involve upgrading from Tiger to Leopard on PowerPC systems in certain scenarios, and HP printer drivers.

    As mentioned yesterday, Apple will need to finalize Leopard soon in order to meet their October shipping deadline. Apple had originally slated Leopard for earlier this year, but announced in April that it would be delayed until October.

    Apple has detailed many of the features of Leopard on their website.

    Am I the only one starting to think that Leopard is going to be pushed back again??? I know Apple still has a little bit of time, but I am starting to think it might not be released til November or even early next year.

    My only question is if Leopard will run on a clamshell dual display Apple Tablet Not Nano. Full iPhone interface options. Full Leopard capabilities including multi-homing. HD.

    Kudos to the guy in the last thread who insisted this update was on the way. I'm too lazy to look up your name, but you know who you are! :)

    Hopefully it's ready by October...the Vista fanboys will start trolling here like crazy if it's not:eek:

    I'm sure we'll have Leopard ready by the 23rd...hey, that's Mol Day(yes, I remember Chemistry:p). The only thing I care about is a good .1 or .2 release so I can go buy it around December.

    To brag about how their OS was delayed by a decade in comparison?

    Why do you think that? It is common for Apple to release a developer build about a month before the boxed product is released ... with that "last" developer build basically matching what goes in the box. Also sometimes we will get a little burst of builds near they end as the close out show stoppers that are found.

    Remember, they are fanboys;) To be fair though, it wasn't a full decade...sure, six or seven years, but not a decade:p

    Likely shouldn't count the last update... it was primarily a test of the software update system. They did this once before with Leopard... release a software update followed a few days later by a much later build.

    So, is this new version also available through the updater, or do I nee to download the big-ass DMG?

    Previous update was incredibly minor, only updated the Dictionary.app.

    OffT: XP was only released 6 years ago…

    OnT: Come hell or highwater Leopard will be released in Oct.

    Treat 10.5.0 a paid beta if you've never seen how awesome Apple's 10.x.0's are. Now you can't say you weren't warned.

    It's a new build. Go grab it off the Leopard Dev Center website. (And if you don't have access to the Leopard Dev Center, you shouldn't be running it!)

    Didn't Microsoft begin Vista's development once XP was released? Either way, the point is, Apple won't delay Leopard anymore; it's time has come.

    Which is why I plan on buying in December.

    if PPC upgrade compatibility takes until 10.5.1, that's fine. They really must get Leopard for Intels out by the 31st though.
