Mac Os 10.5.7 released

May 13, 2009 1 comment

Software UpdateApple has today released the latest update to its Mac OSX Leopard operating system. 10.5.7 offers the usual mix of bug fixes and security updates, and is available as an updater for 10.5.6 or a combo updater for any version of 10.5 Leopard.

Many components are updated in this release, including RAW image support, Nvidia graphic updates, Widgets, Finder network searches and printing. Knowledge base article HT3397 covers the update in greater depth. And for anyone wanting the last word in detail, Macworld has an article that lists just about everything updated.

My advice for anyone applying the update (hackintosh or macintosh) is make a backup before attempting. We all make regular backups though, don’t we? I’ve just had a 120Gb hard drive die that was fortunately used exlusively for playing games on Windows XP, but at just over three years old and light use it was certainly not an expected failure.
