  • Mac OSX 10.5.7 seeded to developers, Major Bugs resolved!

    Yesterday, Apple seeded its new beta for OSX 10.5.7 to the developers. This is the 7th major update (as compared to 11 in Tiger) and it seems that Apple is planning to make Leopard a bit more stable before releasing the new Snow Leopard. The build number for this beta of Leopard is 9J22. In the current form it is a 440 MB file.

    Apple has requested that developers test twenty areas of this particular build. People familiar with build number 9J22 say it has about 70 changes, mostly based on syncing issues related to Mail, Address Book etc. and networking improvements. Quite a few preferences and widgets have been updated as well to boost the performance. A big issue that seems to have been solved is the rejection of a few file types by Safari. This build also improves the way OS X handles the RAW image files.

    A negative part of this update is that you can't use the new Safari 4 Beta. Other updates involve graphics drivers, Time Machine, printing services, screen sharing services, MobileMe syncing, AirPort services, text services, and iCal.

    These betas are available for download and testing by Apple Developer Center Premier and Select Members.

      New graphic drivers? Crap... I hope they don't screw up alot of the drivers on hackintoshs like 10.5.5 did.. =/

      And if you can't install Safari 4 Beta with the system reading 10.5.7, you can change the SystemVersion.plist in System > Library > Core services, to 10.5.6 or anything and the install should work fine (if it works on 10.5.6, but I don't see why ut wouldn't.)

      Great... ProTools users will have to wait at least 6 months after this comes out for compatibility.... not to mention another wait for snow leopard

      all these updates are odd imho. my mac has never had a problem and if it did, i surely was not aware of it. Macs rule!

      i installed it yesterday and the first problem i had was my usb to dvi adapter. there wasnt any way to install the drivers for it so i had to revert back to .6 and now i hear you guys talking about changing some file to make it think you are on .6 vs .7..... is this hard to do? worth it?

      Sounds good. Will try it when it comes. Don;t have to worry about them trying to lock me out of jailbreaking. If they succeed I can laugh and hop over to my PC... LOL
