RailHeadDesign hints at soon to be released 10.1.5 update.

Again, these are just grumblings and snippets I’m hearing, but the POTENTIAL bottom line is this: OS X 10.1.5 is ready and the update to Internet Explorer is almost complete, too. Both could be available before the weekend is over — but the Office v10 update is still weeks away from release.

Absolutely.... :D

I'm really impressed so far with my first week as a native OSX user, Photoshop 7 that seemed to be buggy in OS9, runs much better too........ I'm finding it much more productive......... :) than OS9.......

Quite. Although 10.2 will be more than welcome too, despite the likelyhood of a fee ;)

Seems like it's another minor update, a lá .1.4. No doubt better than nothing though...

we've discussed this a lot in other threads... but apple wants to package the IE updates with the OS updates apparently. it's beginning to sound like IE is a part of the MacOS... :rolleyes: At least it's seperable :D

Already on Apple Store iMacs

Hey, I'm in the Apple Store in McLean, VA, and the LCD iMac I'm posting with is running 10.1.5 already, build number 5S55. Also shows the serial number with a second click on the version number in the About This Mac box.

A quick examination of the Finder reveals no 10.1.5 readme, so I don't know what's new other than that so far.

Cheers,

Daniel

Hey,

I saw Jaguar in action the other day, and it's quite impressive! And QuickTime 6 rocks (at least MPEG 4 does!).

Also, it's allready very stable i think, so it shouldn't take too long to have a Release Candidate... The only problem is QT6 i guess...

And it won't be 10.2. :cool:

New features

Apple don't change anything big in these minor updates. They should have been called "fixes" or "patches". But 10.2 - that is an update!

And where does everybody get Jaguar from?
Maybe I should contact Apple...

Whatever makes you think that? Microsoft are working on an update with a bunch of bug fixes and minor optimizations (i believe), but that's not to say that v.X isn't going to work with .1.5.

The Canon A40 works with 10.1.5

We've all read the 'updated note' but I just bought a Canon A40 today (not supported under 10.1.4) and tested it with 10.1.5 and it worked as it should. I'll be happy when they release the update.

To Download or not too download

Should I download 10.1.5, I have it, got it off Limewire, or do I wait, I am getting the new iMac, and I am wondering whether I should install it, and risk #%^ing it up. Also, in 10.1.5, there is a tab in System Preferences for Bluetooth, I saw it at the Apple Store.

It's always best to wait until Apple officially releases it. Unless you're the adventurous sort. :cool: Not a whole lot can happen, but sometimes it can be a bear to update the official update over the earlier build if what you got your mitts on wasn't the final build.

The impression i get from the article linked above is that the only difference between the version of .1.5 that's on limewire and the one that will be released on monday (according to rumours) is that tuesday's will have the IE update included in it. If that's the case, then you're not risking much by downloading it now. Apple obviously trust it, if they've got it on the macs in the apple stores, so it can't be all that bad.

I'm going to wait, but that's not to say that's it's a major risk for you to do so.

If I am not mistaken, DVD speeds run 8 times faster than CD speeds when listed. (Example: A DVD burning speed of 6x would be like a CD burning speed of 48x.) The iMac Superdrive burns DVDs at 2x, which is equivalent to 16x CD burning, which I think is equivalent to 2.4MB/s, or 144MB/m.

How large is the file you plan to burn to a DVD? Take that number (in MBs) and divide by 144. That is how many minutes the burning process will take. But, do not forget the software you use is going to take up some time to prepare. So the whole process will take longer. I am not too sure how much longer, but I would say a minimum of around 3 to 5 extra minutes.
