On Friday, Apple seeded developers with Mac OS X 10.5.3 build 9D22. The latest build offers 15 new bug fixes to the latest version of Mac OS X Leopard. Apple has been aggressively seeded 10.5.3 seeds to developers. The previous seed (9d19) was released only 1 week earlier.

Once complete, the final Mac OS X 10.5.3 update will become available as a free update to existing Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) users via Software Update. No target date is set, but testing for a new version can extend over several months.

Can't wait. I've had a kung fu death-grip on 10.4.11 until now. Been waiting for a reason to upgrade to Leopard. I just ordered the 8800GT for my 1st Gen Mac Pro and it only works on 10.5.2 or higher so I will need to finally take the plunge to "Spots". Will be nice to get both 10.5.3 and a better GPU at the same time.

I think there pushing it quickly because its meant to fix the shutdown/restart problems that were introduced in 10.5.2, my 2 macs both regularly hang at this point since that last update.

Maybe this update they will fix the slow double mouse click speed setting. When the double click speed is set low the finder folders crawls to five seconds to open folders. Set it to high and no problems. Give it a try. I did for an apple store worker and they couldn't believe it.

I just tried that and it works fine for me. Strange. I'm on 10.5.2.

- Joining AirPort network after wake issue resolved

Hey hey! Maybe this'll finally fix my wake up from sleep issue where it'd occasionally take up to 2 minutes to wake up after opening my MBP lid, and the problem with not being connected, even though I've got an IP address and the little colored ball is green. The second problem is usually fixed with a restart though...

Are these particular to this seed only (cumulative of the last seeds, i.e. all of the 10.5.3 fixes or only this particular seed)?

Is there any mention of a fix for Samba/connecting to windows networks? There is a really nasty bug that makes it impossible to write to windows servers without reducing security settings on the server side. Its discussed here:

Just curious..

How many builds does apple usually go through? I am assuming as many as it takes, but has there been a pattern say with the other OS's with how many have been "seeded"

Leopard is getting more and more solid with each update. I'm looking forward to its release.

that's a huge list of fixes. Good to see a list of fixes too. I bet in software update the description it will just say it will improve stability and addresses a number of security issues.

Although it doesn't include the one I'd really like - The ability to make the Finder sidebar text large, like the option in Mail, iPhoto, iTunes etc.

Leopard was touted as great for accessibility, its crazy this is not possible.

Hopefully more phones will be added to iSync.
