If I buy from apple, will they send a 10.5.2 disc or earlier version?

    I'm about to buy Leopard, but given that the 10.5.2 update was announced only 10 days or so, I'm wondering if Apple would ship any remaining 10.5.1 discs instead of a 10.5.2 disc.

    I obviously would prefer to get an installer that upgrades me to the latest version, rather than upgrading to lepard and then having to upgrade to 10.5.2.


    UPDATE: I chatted with an Applestore sales rep and she said they're not shipping 10.5.2 discs yet.

    Apple do not update retail disks for every point version - they tend only to do it when a large number of important bugfixes have been rolled in. If I recall correctly, there were only 4 updates of the Tiger retail disk - the interim updates had to be downloaded even if you'd just bought a brand new copy.

    Given that Apple updated for 10.5.1, it wouldn't surprise me if we don't see another updated retail disk until 10.5.4 or later.
