    Apple updated iWork and iWeb for "OS compatibility" issues, supposedly getting ready for 10.5.2. The question is why? Does it mean 10.5.2 is going to have compatibility issues for some Applications?

    We know 10.5.2 is the biggest OSX update ever, it covers almost the entire OS, these updates may change the way Leopard operates in some aspects, which may be enough to break some Apps that are compatible with Leopard right now.

    Maybe that is the reason 10.5.2 is being delayed?

    Um, possibly. I think though that Apple's release of the recent updates indicates that they are
    trying to stay ahead of that so they can release 10.5.2 with the least amount of problems.

    10.5.2 is going to be like El Nino... doesn't matter what the problem will be after the upgrade (related or not)... it will get blamed for everything.

    Hah, I like that.

    As for me, if it fixes all of my Leopard woes, it can break as many third-party apps as it wants. They'll be fixed in due time, and they are a less pressing matter to me.

    Updates to apps are not b/c the OS update will break them, it is to fix issues that they are already having in general or with 10.5.x to begin with, not a future update.

    Just unleash the beast - release 10.5.2 and the apps will deal with it, or die!

    i doubt the update will break many, if any apps. the reason being that apple updates their own apps is because they are so integrated with the system, if other apps are similarly integrated there might be some issues, but most arent and should be just fine.

    I see it the other way round. A program is least likely to work with 10.5.0, more likely to work with 5.1 and probably even more likely to work with 5.2.

    Remember devs with an Apple Developer membership get the builds of 10.5.2 and onwards before release to prepare their apps for Apple's updates :)

    We don't know, but past experience indicates it will be Pro apps...
