It is! It is in the software update. It's a small download, and as mentioned in the page 2 posts I believe that it fixes most USB hub crashes.

Updates Everywhere with no Expo in sight

Apple sure is busy with updates today without the benefit of an Expo. Apple execs did say they were getting away from big Expo announcements and bringing out new products when they are ready.

And who said Apple would not address a specific game in an update?

"What's the difference between 10.2.5 and 10.2.6?"

"0.0.1"

Yeah that's what I was wondering, where is UT2K3, there is already an update for it and nobody has it. I guess they really want the demo to be the best it can be.

update??

At 6.1 MBs, this soon after 10.2.5, and looking at the "enhancments", it sounds more like a bug fixing patch than an "update". Not that I'm complaining, I was just hoping the next "update" would bring iChat into the world of decent chat apps.

Me too. I'm actually hoping the rumors of H.323 support are true -- while ohphoneX works, it's still somewhat buggy. Hopefully, the next (native) app in the XMeeting suite will be much better.

I don't know if I'll even install 10.2.6, since none of the addressed issues even remotely affect me.

So, does this mean that support for various phones is handled through the OS rather than iSync?

And, if so, why don't they add some more phones, dammit!

I was surprised when I saw that it had been released today. I just wasn't expecting it.

I have to say...

normally I would be downloading this update right this very minute, but I think I'm going to pass 10.2.6 by. It seems like a quick bug-fix rather than a real "enhancement" type update. I'm not really complaining or anything, 'cause this was pretty unexpected right now anyway. Heck, I JUST read on Railheaddesign.com that a build of 10.2.6 was released to developers not long ago. I see now why it came out so quick- being a bug-fix and all.

I'm going to pass, because OS X.2.5 works just fine by me at the moment, and I'm afraid this will only gum things up on my PM (Hey, it can happen!). So if it doesn't offer anything relevant to me, then why bother, right? :rolleyes:

I'm downloading it now, seeing as how I had a kernel panic about half an hour ago, and it took 10 MINUTES to reboot. Musta been somethin' nasty - fonts started acting screwy, then kaput. Hope this fixes it.

Absolutely.

I will refrain from installing this update, too. Why bother with it. I am still waiting for the overdue iSync update. If anyone of you has got a good idea how to backup data from my P800 phone - please speak out loud.

Problems are:
? No iSync functionality
? Adressbook doesn't work with it
? I cannot browse my P800 via bluetooth
? P800 cannot see my iBooks internet-connection via USB
? No nothing

The only thing that works is sending single (!) files via bluetooth - apart from an annoying error message.

In a nutshell, 10.2.6 is no good for me and I won't risk to harm my iBook in any way. Never change a running system, unless... yes, unless it supports my P800.

Later,
Greco
