    As of this posting, the title is:

    Mac OS X 10.2.6 Monday/Tuesday?

    Yet the thread is about 10.2.5.

    I doubt there will be a 10.2.6, though. There have been plenty of "seeds" for 10.2.5, so a lot of preperation went into 10.2.5. I suspect the rest will go towards 10.3.
  3. macrumors 6502a

    AFAIK 10.2.5 has not been out yet for normal users.

    10.2.6 will exist, if before that the battery killer and some other issues will not be resolved.

    10.2.6 will exist That's rather bold for something that isn't known to exist and may not be possible. Are you creating it?
  5. macrumors 68030


    Yeah, even with the conditional "if" it's still possible that they hold off fixing it until 10.3...
  6. macrumors 603


    if we aren't going to see panther till september, i think chances are OK for a 10.2.6.

    OS updates have been showing up about every two months, so this would put 10.2.6 in June, and if issues crop up, 10.2.7 could possibly be in late July or early August. Of course, since 10.0 went to 10.0.4 and 10.1 went to 10.1.5, perhaps 10.2 will stop at 10.2.6? But I doubt that by the time 10.6 comes around, there would be a 10.6.10.

    i'm gonna be pretty pissed if this next update doesn't fix my battery. this kind of thing should happen!!...an update that actually makes your machine peform worse
  9. macrumors 68000


    Is this battery problem on all Apple laptops, or specifically one type, like the iBooks? I am scared about my new 12" Powerbook, and am secretly hoping it ships with 10.2.3 instead. :rolleyes:

    Hopefull 10.2.5 resolves all battery issues so there will be no more problems.
  10. macrumors 68040


    I think your OK. I thought most apple products shipped iwht 10.2.1 and gave u the option to upgrade.
  11. macrumors 68040


    I jsut repaired all my permissions and I'm ready for the update. Maybe we will have a SUPERTUESDAY. Who knows but heres hoping.

    Just changing the subject a bit, do we have any proof that Panther is actually going to be 10.3? Apple's site just says it's the next version of OS X, and I'm reminded of OS 7 and 8, which skipped straight up to 7.5 and 8.5 without having a .3 or .4 in either case (or a .2 for that matter IIRC).
  13. macrumors member

    Jaguar was 10.2. Apple wants to stick with the "X" naming scheme (since X = 10). It's only logical that Panther will be 10.3.

    But there is a chance otherwise.
  14. macrumors 6502a

    I agree 1000%

    Apple has a really good OS and the name brand "X" isn't gonna be given up so quickly. Apple never really had this kinda problem before (not really a problem but you know what I mean).

    10.3 = 2003
    10.4 = 2004
    10.5 = 2005
    10.6 = 2006
    10.7 = 2007
    10.8 = 2008
    10.9 = 2009 = The year of debate: 'now what do we call it'

    Apple is gonna wanna hold on to X for as long as it can. In fact, I wouldn't be shocked to start hearing about 'X v11.0' in another 6 or so years. :D

  15. macrumors 603


    what's wrong with OS XI? it's less confusing than X, if not as cool-looking.
  16. macrumors 6502

    But do we really want to confuse our OS with the SuperBowl? ;)

    Coming to a city near you!!! SuperMac XXXIV (v 34.1.4)

    The 1970 Mac

    I hope OS X.2.5 fixes that damned date bug introduced in the last version. Nearly every time I boot up the date is the 1st of January, 1970!!

    Anyway, apart from that I am very happy with OS X.2 on my dual 800 MHz QuickSilver. I do not have a laptop but those people complaining about their batteries should double check what their Energy Saver settings are, as well as minimize usage of the optical drive and turn down their screen brightness. Oh, and they should also use an AC adaptor when in-doors.
  18. macrumors 6502

    You're computer boots to Jan 1, 1970. That's funny. That means instead of saving the date they initialize to the epoch time (initializing the time variable to 0). Oh well, sorry for the lame post. I've been researching computer time the day for my little programming endeavor. For anyone who doesn't know, time is stored in this signed double which is the number of seconds since the aforementioned date. Interesting...

    Re: The 1970 Mac

    Have no fear! The first seed of 10.2.5 fixed the date bugs, so no more playing around with network time I'm afraid...:(

    What about iChat and Mail?

    Ah, but will the suggestions I've been sending repeatedly to Apple be incorperated? iChat should send my Away message when someone sends me an IM. And attachments in Mail are always a problem for me when I send files to my friends on AOL. If these two things could be fixed, I can start to mend the poor opinion my friends have of Macs (given that I've had to explain these two faults to my PC friends with the "I guess it's because I'm on a Mac" response).
  21. macrumors 6502a

    i said 10.2.6 to exist if the battery issue won't be solved before. (it does affect even some powerbooks).

    any of the releases so far hasn't have any note it to have been resolved.

    it makes no sense to leave that issue open and to "force" the users that otherwise like X.2 (and e.g. have a G3) to migrate to panther. so just invent the battery fix and release that before. if it so far isn't in any release note, it hasnt' been solved.

    or in alternative, give me just a new battery and i'll stuck on 10.2.5. ~ 40 minutes of battery life sucks.

    unless panther will be faster even on a G3 probably on my 'book i'll stay with jag.

    Version Numbers

    10.8 = 2008
    10.9 = 2009...

    I'm seems like the next steps would be:

    10.10 = 2010
    10.11 = 2011 etc.

    I doubt in ten years anyone will confuse 10.1.0
    and 10.10.0
  23. macrumors 6502a

    nope. what happened after 9.1 or 9.2? 9.3?? or X?

    so why 10. would have e.g. 10.9 ?
  24. macrumors 68020

    And then later on Mac OS L (v.50.0.0)
    And Mac OS C (v.100.0.0)

    In Mac OS XI we go from brushed metal to frosted glass. By Mac OS XIV we should be going to oiled teakwood.

    If I remember correctly, Steve Jobs did say that OS X will last Apple for the next 15 or so years when it was introduced, so I have reason to believe that when the next generation OS comes along, it'll be renamed.
