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).
