Mac OS X 10.5.5 build 9F13
Just under a week after the last update, Apple has begun seeding a new build of Mac OS X 10.5.5 to developers, titled 9F13. Measuring 330MB, the software is said to have no changes to the core components of Leopard, but instead merely a collection of 10 bug fixes, bringing the total in v10.5.5 to 115. This number should continue to increase, as the public version of the update is only expected in October.
Fixes in 9F13 include tweaks to HFS+, the BSD kernel and Energy Saver and Power Management settings, as well as resolutions to issues like Mail and Preferences syncing, and multiple TCP connections through the Application Firewall. Some MobileMe users should notice that the preference pane no longer crashes, thanks to work on DMNotification.
