Apple updates Leopard

Apple on Saturday released a quick update to its next-generation operating system: the Login & Keychain Update 1.0 for Mac OS X 10.5, which was only released yesterday, is 10MB and brings fixes for upgrades from Mac OS X 10.1, Wifi users, and FileVault, Apple's optional security for users' documents. Apple's documentation says that the free update fixes logging in with an account originally created in Mac OS X 10.1 or earlier that has a password of 8 or more characters and also issues when connecting to some 802.11b/g wireless networks. The company also said it fixes issues when changing the password of a FileVault-protected account. The software update has changed with the release of Leopard with the updates installed just before the computer is restart or shutdown (rather than right away in Tiger).

Earlier this week the company also released GarageBand 3.05, which brings compatibility with Leopard and several other updates: Aperture 1.5.6 and Backup 3.1.2 and iLife Support 8.1.1 and iDVD 6.0.4.

    too much info

    Apple's new update scheme is annoying. It installs as normal through software update. I was reading up on some stuff online, so I selected 'restart: not now' Sometime later I restart, screen goes blue and all of a sudden my Mac tells me there is new software for me to install, and do I want to do this now or just restart. what? I already told it to install, why is it bothering me with this again? I click install, it does its thing and it pops up another message, telling me it will be updating boot caches now. sigh, would you just restart already? what is this, Windows? Leopard is nice so far, esthetic issues aside, but this did not impress me.

    GlowWorm Conflict!!!

    Folks, don't know if you covered this yet, but after installing, I experienced a HUGE conflict with a trial-version of GlowWorm I'd forgotten about. GlowWorm was literally using up 99.9 percent of my CPU power (YIKES). As you can imagine, things were crawling. It was a bear to uninstall, but after I got some help from a friend with miles of Apple experience, it was removed it and the Leopard has been roaring happily on my MBP ever since.

    Let me state for the record that I do NOT blame Apple for this. It's still early and I expected such bumps. I hope others understand this as well. Once you start using it, you WILL be impressed. ;)

    Yup. Had Leopard going great on my 1.8mHz G5 for a whole Day And A Half, then this upgrade appeared that software update downloaded. No problem, right? WRONG. Now I'm stuck with an 18 pound boat anchor. As soon as the restart, my hard drive became LOST IN SPACE. I had a similar nightmare with lovely system 8 back in the day....I don't think I'm EVER going to buy another upgrade. I'll just buy new computers. SIGH. As much as I love Mac, I've a very frustrated customer, with little money left.....

    similar nightmare w/ Sys8

    System 8! Wow, that hits the nail on the head. Upgrading to System 8 was actually disappointing for me too...unfortunately, this experience surpasses that.
