I haven't. Doesn't bother me, but what would have been the benefit of this upgrade
no. they were only security updates. i still have not found anything new, and most of the time with these updates you dont get 'new' features. just improved.
pre Unibody MacBook owners get back battery profiles in the Energy Saver preferences and menu mar icon.
This is the only thing I have noticed for now.
I noticed today that I have a new Energy Saver lightbulb icon. Other than that not much.
23inch HD Display Power Button - now limited use
Unless I'm a total idiot.... it seems 10.5.7 took away for the power button on the monitor to open a window for Sleep/Shutdown etc.... I'm pretty sure I know where to look for that choice.... but I digress.....
The main power button on my Mac Pro will sleep the computer.... but I really miss the use of the monitor's power button for shut down, sleep and log off choice....
Not the end of the world... but it is the only difference I have noted.... 99% of the time I never notice anything in an update....
I have a first gen Mac Pro (2.66Ghz) and itunes wouldnt play HD content using the previous version. I spent 3 days talking to apple to come up with the conclusion that the version of itunes and my video card have some kind of bug that wont allow HD content to play. It works fine with 10.5.7
Not sure if it's worth putting up a similar thread in the Mac Pro section -
hardmac is reporting possible changes when you compare quad core, vs octo core Mac Pros under 10.5.7 versus before.
Yeah, the weather gadget works (Jakarta, Indonesia.)
The Hackintosh community are reporting improved battery life. My Netbook (an MSI Wind) gets about 10 minutes or so more on its 3 cell battery. Not sure if that'll filter across to our "real" Macs though.
Improved fps playback in Color and RedCine. Color went from 8fps to 13/14fps. RedCine from 9fps to 13fps. Geekbench scores are averaging 100 points higher now than before with 10.5.6. These improvements are on the 2.93 8 core Nehalem.
Still works for me:
Haven't noticed anything.
I don't like 10.5.x updates!! Ha ha.
Still works for me too
Nothing noticed here either
I noticed the enhanced version number.
Well, since you asked...Hell YES I've noticed a difference!
Web browsing is slower indicated by the fact that the little spinning wheel next to the mouse/arrow is active MUCH more than ever before. From my perspective, 10.5.7 was a step BACKWARDS. I've tried with both Snafuari 4 beta and Firefox with the same results. Interestingly, Firefox inside of Windows 7 under Fusion is FASTER that Firefox native on the Mac.....go figure.
And I am not the only one seeing the phenomenon.
2008 2.6 ghz 17" MBP, 4 Gb ram, 30" ACD, 4 Tb external storage.
NSOperationQueue doesn't crash randomly anymore in 10.5.7.
Windows 7 partitions show up in Startup Disk now. That's pretty cool.
Just noticed that too one of the low voltage energy saving ones
im still on 10.5.5
It could be my imagination, but it feels like a couple of Flash-based games I play when I need to procrastinate are a little speedier.
The version number in the "About This Mac" screen has changed from saying 10.5.6 to 10.5.7.
