Apple’s forthcoming Mac OS X 10.5.6 update shows progress

“Apple seems to be making a fair bit of progress on the upcoming Mac OS X 10.5.6 update,” Justin Berka reports for Ars Technica.

“This week, the company released a new test build of the package to its update testers. This time around, Italian site HMBT is defying Apple’s customary NDA, and has kindly posted the full set of build notes for the 9G35 seed, which includes a lot of fixes, as well as a request for extra MobileMe, AFP, and Mail testing,” Berka reports.

“When the first test build of 10.5.6 was released a few weeks ago, it came with a fairly large list of components that needed testing, and the latest build is no different. The notes ask developers to test 80 components of 10.5.6, a slight increase from the previous build, but the good news is that the current seed contains almost 90 bug fixes, a substantial increase from the 50 or so in the last seed,” Berka reports.

  1. As more and more people casually break their NDAs, the NDA is worth less and less.

    I find it astonishing how many people have simply thrown the idea of honesty, honour and justice out the window nowadays.

  2. i won’t comment on your horrible sentence structure, but i must ask one question.

    who the hell pissed in your wheaties today?

    “That used to repeat a joke someone just told and laughing – like they were actually funny and not the unoriginal moron repeating shit that they are?

    Yea- that’s who you emulate when you say snappy.

    it was funny the first few times years ago..”
