It isnt working.... When i click install it stays in the "Software Update" app, the window with the updates becomes unselected, and nothing starts downloading. If i select "Install Checked" from the menu bar the same thing happens.

It's a UNIX file system of sorts. It keeps logs in great detail about EVERYTHING that happens on a machine. I believe this is supposed to allow you to restore the machine to a given state after any sort of crash, etc. Word is that it reduces disk/system speed in the area of (I think) 15%. Not something the average user is likely to be very interested in.

You'll have to download the 10.2.2 installer from here, it's not there just yet but no doubt it will be soon enough.

how did u test it?
Just feeling that the overall 2D graphics performance has significantly improved. In the Finder, in Chimera, in Mail...

And it's not even mentioned in the kb doc!

Every time you install something big it always boosts speed because of the optimisations it does at the end of the install. If you do not install things on a regular basis, you will feel it more than others. I don't see that they did anything to improve the finder, so I don't think I will see anything drastic from this update as far as the finder goes.

Damn, was hoping for a 1.1 version of iChat.

So does it actually work now?

OK, that was a bit harsh.

Nice try. Journaling has nothing to do, intrinsically, with UNIX "file systems". Also, a journaling file system will not help you recover from "any" sort of crash. It might help avoid extended disk constistency checks under certain circumstances but it is not foolproof.

iChat... bad news

I was looking forward to having multiple lines in iChat, but alas there is still only one input line. How hard is it to make an option to have more than one input line visible? I actually don't see any differences in iChat (preferences are exactly the same, from what I remember), and the KB document doesn't mention iChat, even though the Software Update summary does. Weird. Tomorrow, I'll see if they fixed the weird problem I get at work where I can type to other people, but their messages never get to me (might be a firewall issue, except that it doesn't happen on the regular aol client).

Ain't the optimization just update the prebindings? This shouldn't have much an effect on the overall system performance alone. Besides, Jaguar does this automatically anyway. Correct me if I am wrong....

From Apple:
Reduces the time required for switching between Sherlock channels when using a low-bandwidth connection.

Does what it says it's supposed to, granted my Powerbook 667 with 1024 Mb and 17 kbs iDSL connection. Sherlock works like a charm...
