Kasper Jade reports for AppleInsider, “Those people familiar with the matter say the update, like those that came before it, will bundle a plethora of bug fixes spanning a wide range of system components and services. In its current pre-release form, the software reportedly boasts nearly six dozen code corrections and weighs a hefty 440 megabytes in barebones form.”

Jade reports, “Mac OS X 10.5.7 will represent the seventh incremental update to Leopard since the software hit the market in late October of 2007. It’s expected to be released sometime in the coming months. The last update of Leopard was Mac OS X 10.5.6, which arrived on December 15th.”
