“A list of bugs accompanying the latest pre-release build of Apple Inc.’s Leopard operating system appears to have swelled somewhat since the Cupertino-based company last seeded the software to developers in early March,” Prince McLean reports for AppleInsider.
McLean reports, “According to reports already plastered on Apple-related web sites, Mac OS X Leopard (Client) Build 9A410, which was released to thousands of Mac OS X developers this week, still carries with it a laundry list of nearly three dozen known issues.”
“The 5.3-gigabyte Leopard build release this week, unlike the seeds that preceded it, is said to contain only a handful of notable changes, most pertaining to updates to the software’s various underlying frameworks,” McLean reports.
McLean reports, “Despite the outstanding issues with Leopard, the growing consensus amongst insiders and industry analysts is that Apple anticipates a release of the software around the time its World Wide Developers Conference rolls around in mid-June… [Apple] has yet to reveal or broadly test a number of “top secret” features said to be lingering in builds of the software held down closely at its Cupertino-based headquarters.”
