Apple has seeded developers with two updates tonight.

The first is the Mac OS X 10.5.2 (9C7) update which lists fixes to 76 distinct issues. Bug fixes range from memory leaks, various printing issues, SMB support and more. Apple issued Mac OS X 10.5.1 in November and has recently updated retail copies of Leopard to include the full 10.5.1 version. A Page 2 rumor pegs the Mac OS X 10.5.2 final release at Macworld Expo in January.

Next, Apple has finally seeded Java SE 6 Preview 8 for Leopard. Apple had been secretive about the Java 6 support for Leopard and the product launch was met with disappointment amongst Java developers hoping for support for the latest version. Tonight's release provides an implementation of Sun's Java SE 6 for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and includes Java SE 6 version 1.6.0_01. This latest seed requires a 64-bit capable Intel-powered Mac and is described as having received only limited testing thus far.

So does this mean java 6 will be 64bit only :\


if that's the case and apple is allready rejecting it's 32 bit user base... I dunno what to say.

iJawn108: No, I think they'll do a 32/64bit ub when they release it... they still have much work to do.

And J2SE6 DP8?! how the hell did I miss 1-7???

In any case, can anyone confirm if the java DP is available to all ADC members?

I must say that I feel pretty secure on Tiger right now, which seems to be comparatively rock solid. Obviously, it doesn't have the same features, but it's not like using Windows 3.1 or some such thing.

Everythings pretty good on my system, except mail.app which really really sucks. It badly needs an update. It's slow, it hangs, when I select a mail item or rss item, it often takes 3s+ to load it, despite it being stored locally.

Apple: please fix Mail.app. It's pretty buggy in Leopard.

I installed clean but brought in my mail from my OSX 10.4 tiger install. I have over 4gb of mail doing my personal and business mail. Mail.app has worked great for me.

No, its not just you.. depends on your configuration, but leopards wifi support is screwy as all hell.

All four machines I have access to have clean installs. All display varying degrees of bugginess with Mail.app.

I normally wait for .2 releases as a rule for Apple OSs but was drawn in by the new shiny tweaks. I still don't regret that.

76 bug fixes?

For Leopard?

At this rate, it may be 10.5.8 before Leopard gets to release quality.

Let's hope Apple has fixed many, many more bugs than 76 and Apple is just no disclosing the full list or full count.

Leopard is a total train wreck on the quality front. Such a shame since it is a great OS otherwise.

I also hope Apple took the opportunity to re-think how Spaces and Mail tasks work. The functional design seems like it is something born in Redmond, on a bad day. A very bad day.

Oh, and getting Back to Mac to actually work would be nice, because, you know, it's one of the core upgrade features and all.

Hopefully it fixes some finder issues where my finder crashes. Also, some firewall issues, especially the itunes sharing one...Or is that not a bug? Its annoying either way.

well, looks like 10.5.2 at macworld....

My Leopard is perfect, but I have a friend with a Samsung G600, and I recently switched him to the Mac...unfortunately the phone doesn't work with Leopard (unless someone can find me a driver) and I hope 10.5.2 will bring support :)

Well, you better call up Apple and tell them not to bother with 10.5.2 then. Silly Apple, thinking they've found and fixed bugs when you know there's no bugs at all. :)
I said My Leopard, meaning that I'm not personally desperate for 10.5.2, I'm by no means suggesting that there are no bugs at all...
