    ThinkSecret believes that Apple is about ready to release the first update to Mac OS X Leopard.

    Mac OS X 10.5.1 has been undergoing testing by developers over the past two weeks, and ThinkSecret claims that it has been finalized at build 9B18. The last build made available to developers was 9B16 and was released seeded earlier this week. There were no known issues at that time.

    The update is expected to simply provide stability, compatibility, and security improvements for Leopard.

    Looks like I'll be buying Leopard sooner than I thought.

    Yippee

    So, any word on 10.4.11 yet? I'm thinking of upgrading my work computer from Panther to Tiger, but not before 10.4.11 :p

    Hopefully it fixes the problem with waking up, eliminates the problem with Airport scanning after waking up which causes the choppy mouse movement and the only thing to repair it is to restart, patches the bug with mosaic wallpaper which shows white center image or even cannot be launch (sometimes), improves the firewall, fixes the choppiness of genie effect, adds functionality back to Time machine, reduces the "greediness" of Time Machine in sucking all spaces available in our HD, brings back hierarchy function in stack, doesn't let the dock minimize when Stack is opened, lets the each folder remembers their "View" mode, doesn't make the icon grows to gargantuan size when we resize the folder, and improves the overall performance...

    I'm sure that many of the fixes were made after Leopard went GM, but before it hit the shelves; that's the joy of having the internet. Ten years ago things had to be right before they shipped; I recall receiving a free Office update on multiple floppies :eek:

    My iMac is working so well with 10.5 that I think I too will let others try the update before I do.:)

    I haven't installed 10.5 yet. I have Leopard but I'm awaiting my back-up portable hard drive to arrive ( and back up with Superduper!); then install 10.5.

    Now, with this announcement, I'll probably wait until 10.5.1 arrives.

    Hot dog!

    I hope they release it soon; there are some nasty bugs that need squashing.

    Hopefully it will fix a few inconsistencies with the Finder and the Dock, like moving icons around on the dock they don't "move" aside all the time, also the time on iCal doesn't change automatically unless the computer's restarted...and other few things here and there.
    I'm looking forward to it! :)

    Meh... Don't get too excited for this... it's not like it's gonna make any feature changes... just bug fixes.

    I heard that Safari is snappier though.

    I'm hoping the following will be fixed:

    • Aperture & Time machine issue
    • Spell checker in Safari
    • Safari 3 stability - seems to crash more often than 10.4 did. Not a big deal but still annoying when it happens.
    • Fix already identified security flaws (i.e. firewall etc.)

    uuuuuhhh...

    An aversion to odd numbers?
    An objection to the fact that an update is even needed?
    Biblically-inspired bigotry toward "alternative" operating systems that represent 10% of the population?
    Sheer bloody-mindedness?
    Lord Patton is Grumpy Smurf's love child?
    To demonstrate the sheer futility of the rating system?

    (between you and me, I read on 9to5mac that it's the Grumpy Smurf thing...)

    Im starting to think the 10.4.11 update has been scraped. There has been no word on it for weeks. Certainly no more developer releases anyway. Plus Apple never released an update for an OS that has been superseded. Security updates excepted.
    Anyway, Why hold of on Tiger altogether just because of this small update!? 10.4.10 is a big step forward over any release of 10.3

    As for you guys that are clearly getting all moist about 10.5.1.. Seriously guys, get a grip of yourselves.

    The one thing...

    I can "live" a bit longer with many of the problems, but there is one that is just driving me completely nuts...where did my battery go????

    I hope they fix this issue. My MBP was getting around 3 hrs of battery time on 10.4.10, but once on 10.5, I barely get 90 minutes!

    not to mention the Time Machine bug, when you go to the menu item 'open with...' over a document you get every single backup application show up. Also, I agree with the Safari stability, it crashes way more often.

    1) yes
    2) no
    3) Only if you're referring to the Old Testament
    4) Always
    5) I don't think so, but not ruling it out
    6) finger to nose

    I hate hate hate 9to5mac (see reason 1 above)
