In what has become an almost-weekly event, Apple has seeded a new version of Mac OS X 10.5.7, known as Build 9J30, to developers. World of Apple publishes the seed notes, which reveal that the lack of Safari 4 beta support is the only remaining issue Apple has chosen to highlight.
One week after the previous seed of Mac OS X 10.5.7 Apple has given developers another build this time in the form of 9J30. The rapid development of Mac OS X 10.5.7 suggests a public release before the end of March.

Developers testing build 9J30 have been asked to focus on new areas such as Flash Player, USB and Flash Drives, iCal and Widgets.
Apple seeded Build 9J22 on February 25th and Build 9J27 on March 7th. The declining list of known issues, brief time intervals between seeds, and decreasing intervals of build numbers between those seeds suggest that Apple is wrapping up development on OS X 10.5.7 and should see a release in the near future.

Having such incremental updates like these (7 (after this releases) for Leopard in a year and a half are so refreshing compared to the few and very infrequent service packs for Windows OSes. I look forward to this release.

Service Packs for Windows come out infrequently because they simply combine hundreds of hotfixes into one installer. There are many incremental Windows updates released every Patch Tuesday, and thus updates work much the same vein as they do on Mac OS X.

Can I just ask. Is this Snow Leopard. I know it says 10.5.7 but i'm just wondering cus' its getting a bit confusing as sometimes there are posts saying 'Snow Leopard seeded to developers' and some that say '10.5.7 seeded to developers'. If not then does this include Quicktime X and the new Stacks features? Or is that 10.6. When will 10.6 be released?

SNOW Leopard is 10.6.xxxx

LEOPARD is anything with 10.5.xxxx

10.6 is assumed to come out in the summer or beyond.
10.5.7 will probably be out for free to all 10.5 owners by the end of the month.

I'm not a developer. Does anyone know where a list of what is still being worked on may be found? Just curious.

While I love an update to OS X how is everyone doing with 10.5.6?

Consider I've rarely had problems with updates like some poor users.

Compatibility with Safari 4 Beta has got to make it into 10.5.7 otherwise I don't want to update. :(
Safari 4 Beta is that good!

You dream of 10.5.7?

Well I planned to buy an unibody MacBook pro the same day apple changed the configuration bumping it to 2.66ghz and now I planned again and there's snow leopard peeking and that is just resisting my dream of buying a Macbook just flipped my fingers crossed to see what's the next surprise from Apple going to be.

Speaking of Safari being good, I know that Apple's putting in a new version of Flash into this update. Since Flash is such a unruly resource hog, I'm hoping they reined it in a bit. For example, Firefox will use about 40% of the CPU idle and in the background when some webpages are open. Disable Flash, and it goes down to almost zero.

So my question is this...

Just bought a RADEON HD 4870 not realizing it wouldn't work in my Mac Pro (dummy me).

Should I return it or wait for 10.5.7 which should run this card?

And anyone got any firm info on the Tuesday March 17 release?

Thanks

Patience since you already have the card.
