    Arrow OSX 10.5.7 Finally Out, Last Stop to Snow Leopard!


    Apple has finally release the much awaited and the last major update for leopard, till their next OSX release- Snow Leopard! Apple has been busy, constantly updating 10.5.7 and seeding it to developers in short periods for the past few weeks and now it's here.

    The update of course is a big leap for Leopard over 10.5.6 which was released few months ago. As usual, the update comes in two flavors - combo (729 MB) for updating from any version of OSX 10.5 and the delta version (442 MB) to upgrade from 10.5.6.

    The list of changes is quite huge.

    General

    * Includes latest security fixes.
    * Includes additional RAW image support for several third-party cameras.
    * Improves performance of video playback and cursor movements for recent Macs with NVIDIA graphics.
    * Resolves an issue with Dvorak keyboard layout in Mac OS X 10.5.6.
    * Improves the reliability and accuracy of Unit Converter, Stocks, Weather and Movies Dashboard widgets.
    * Addresses a situation that may cause issues when logging into Gmail.
    * Improves reliability when syncing contacts with Yahoo!.
    * Expansion Slot Utility for Mac Pro now reports the correct PCIe slot configuration.
    * Improves network performance when connected to certain Ethernet switches that have Flow Control enabled.
    * Improves stability for network home directories hosted by Mac OS X Server v10.4.
    * Improves Finder search results for network volumes that may not support Spotlight searching, such as Mac OS X Server v10.4, Time Capsule, and third-party AFP servers.
    * Includes several improvements to Directory Service and Client Management, which are described in the About Mac OS X Server 10.5.7 Update article.

    iCal

    * Improves overall reliability with CalDav.
    * Improves reliability when automatically syncing with MobileMe.

    Mail

    * Addresses reliability and sync issues with Notes.
    * Addresses an issue that may cause the BCC field to populate incorrectly when redirecting a message from the Sent mailbox.

    Parental Controls

    * Improves consistency with Parental Controls and application restrictions.
    * Addresses an issue in which time limits may not work properly with full-screen games and Fast User Switching.

    Printing

    * Resolves an issue that may cause certain third-party printers to print to the incorrect paper tray.
    * Non-admin user accounts can now be allowed to add and remove printers by enabling Parental Controls and selecting "Can administer printers".
    * Includes other printing reliability and stability improvements.
    This version greatly increases the stability as well as security of the OS. You can get it from your familiar Software Update window

    apple doesn't want to release a new OS leaving a laggy one behind for users unwilling to update.

    I'm downloading now. Should take 20-30 minutes on my connection.

    I'll test after it downloads and installs, but I doubt that Apple is going to ever fix that. In their eyes, its a feature, not a bug.

    I got this little never ending event after the install. After about 5 minutes I just hard restarted and all is well so far. Any idea as to what it was? Video driver glitch?

    I only got about 10mb into the download and it kicked up an error saying that the signature could not be verified and that it may have been corrupted since Apple signed it? Any ideas?

    Plus the download is only showing as 264mb or so?

    Maybe my question was misunderstood. I am currently on 10.5.6 with the DFU mode fixed by the Apple script program. What I'm wondering is if this update undoes that fix.

    On the Apple website it says to do a backup before any updates. Are we all expected to have an ex hd or is there an easier way? New to all this

    I downloaded the combo update from the original post since I have speed download and I knew it would download a lot faster. It took about 10 minutes total to download. I then went and installed it, and about 15 minutes after installing, almost everything froze. I was talking to a friend on Skype and I could still talk to him and hear him, but I couldn't move the mouse, the keyboard didn't work at all, and the counter on Skype that says who long you've been in a conversation had frozen. I gave it about another 10 minutes but it didn't appear to do anything. Then I held down the power button and did a forced shutdown and turned my MacBook back on. It booted right up and the "About This Mac" page under the Apple menu said I was running 10.5.7. Interestingly, my external 1TB hard drive was mounted 4 times and my Windows partition was mounted twice:



    I figured having Skype running during the update messed something up, so I ran it again and it finished in about 15 minutes with no problems. After rebooting, I noticed that my external hard drive and my Windows partition where mounted only once each. Then I opened up iTunes to check DFU mode. I plugged in my iTouch and put it into DFU mode. Shockingly, iTunes told me an iPod was discovered in recovery mode! Previous to updating, if I connected my iTouch in DFU mode, iTunes would freeze on the screen saying "Waiting on iPod". I haven't attempted to actually use DFU mode yet because I don't want to restore my iTouch right now, but it would seem that DFU might work now.

    Try downloading the update from the link in the original post. That's what I did and I had no problem downloading it.
