Nice! I hope they fix the QT gamma issue on H.264 encodes. That's the biggest deal for me!

Urgh. Absolutely no mention on that page of any USB fixes (USB kernel panics forced me to ditch Tiger in favor of Panther again 6 weeks ago - Panther continues to be solid as a rock). Even so, I suppose I'll reboot to my Tiger disk when I get home and install the update. If my USB driver still shows the same March 26 date on the file, I'm not sure if I'll even bother to keep running Tiger as the inevitable panic would surely come. :(

Holding out some hope, but not much. This is getting irritating! :mad:

Wow. Everything feels a lot snappier. (no kidding)
Safari scrolls pages faster too. Weird but I'll take it. All in all kind of unspectacular besides the snappiness.

Exposé still is kinda slow.

Mail still doesn't auto-hide after startup.

No mention of proxy support working for iChat.

I guess it sucks for the time they took. Waiting for .3 I guess.

I'm liking the widget manager :D

Tick boxes down the left dictate wether they show in the bottom widget list

And the no entry sign sends the widget to the trash, only works with 3rd party widgets though


haven't noticed anything else yet...

Same here on my PowerBook. I'm not sure if the hard resets were required, or if it would have started up anyway had I left it long enough.

Mine took a little while to boot, not sure how long exactly, but it was long enough to see what dad was up to, and wander off for some bladder relief,
by the time i got back adium was just starting to load (first login app)
