    According to AI, Apple has begun working on 10.3.6. Among other things, it will feature new versions of Safari (1.2.4) and Calculator (3.2). Also, the handling of optical media will be changed.

    What's interesting is the version number of Safari. What happened to rumoured 1.3 version? We'll probably be stuck with 1.2.X until Tiger moves in.

    Well, as we've decided to skip on 10.3.5 this is welcome news...

    What do think changing 'handling optical media' means?

    Actually, I was asking myself the same question when I first read the article. Apparently, Apple is working on Panther's burning capabilities. They're might be adding support for external CD-R(W)/DVD-R(W) drives.

    Oh.

    I never use the finder to burn discs – that's what's Toast 6 is for.

    Mind you, had to do it on a friend's machine once and it was sloooooowww.

    My guess is Apple's making several improvements to DiscBurner, including support for additional media types (probably getting DVD+R and DVD+RW support fixed, and adding Dual-layer DVD/HD-DVD/Blu-Ray support?) and making burning sessions to CD easier.

    And maybe Finder won't copy files to a temp folder when it burns the disk? Thus speeding up burning by removing this step.

    Where to download?

    Sorry, I'm still new. So when you say it has been seeded to developers, where can I get it? I'm a member of ADC and I checked the downloads page and found nothing. Isn't that how the new developer stuff is normally seeded to us? Thanks.

    Apple seems to be pretty busy with 10.3.6 as the current build is 7R10. That's quite a difference to the official build of 10.3.5 which 7M34.

    Well, they need to update 10.3 becuase the last G4 revisions of the powerbooks are coming out, say October November.

    Right?

    I wouldn't bet on the last revision of G4 notebooks anytime soon, I would bet more of a dual core G4 or something.

    Yes, they have to update Panther for the new PBs. But the releases of 10.3.6 and the PBs don't have coincide. It's possible that the PBs will ship with interim build of 10.3.5 same as with the new iMac.

    Presumably you're using the free ADC membership. Only the paid memberships include OS X updates.

    No, I paid my dues and joined, it's not cheap, but I did it. I just started programming for Mac and thought it would be helpful having all of the Developer CD's that they keep sending me. But that does not help me find where I can download this seeded 10.3.6.

    Wonder if it will include Safari??

    AppleInsider says it will improve web browsing. maybe another 1.2.x, but hopefully 1.3.


    Any ADC members have samples (betas) of Safari 1.3 that they tried??

    Yeah, Safari 1.3 totally sucked. It broke a lot of things (including the MacRumors tabs). Now, 1.2.4 (v125.10) is included with 10.3.6, and is pretty nice (no major changes).
