Mac OS X 10.5.4 reaches developers, fixes CS3 issue

Mac OS X 10.5.4 with devs

Developers are receiving the first preview versions of Mac OS X 10.5.4, reports indicate. The update is currently in build 9E6, and is said to be sized at only 55MB, radically smaller than the 420MB file provided for v10.5.3. The software correspondingly addresses a relative minority of changes, most notably an issue with Adobe's Creative Suite 3. Following the v10.5.3 patch, a number of people complained that they could no longer save CS3 files on remote servers, as they would inevitably become corrupt.

The v10.5.4 preview is also said to fix problems with iCal, digital camera decoding, LEAP connections over AirPort, and occasional missing HTTP headers. Apple though is said to be asking developers to focus on testing specific components, including AirPort, iChat, print, ruby and samba.

    Not only Adobe

    This not only affects Adobe CS3, it is also affecting Maxon's Cinema 4D 3D animation/rendering software. The files I worked on earlier in the week in both Photoshop and Cinema 4D became corrupt. I am now saving a copy locally for backup.

    Hopefully this fix will address the issue globally (all applications).

    Time Capsule

    How about the intolerable Airport scanning drop outs. How about wireless backups stalls and drop outs. Airport was great for seven years. Now this Time Capsule mess. Either they hide the antenna from the outside world or it is the new controlling software. Come on guys.

    Same Problem

    I discovered the same problem with VectorWorks files.

    If I open a file on the network server, then Save it or do a Save As... the file becomes invisible.

    I hope Apple fixes this one SOON!

    Maybe this release will actually be tested by the day shift. AFP's been unusable for how many months now?

    I use AFP on a daily basis and haven't seen any problems with it at all. What issues are you seeing?
