Mac OS X 10.5.7 on verge of release?

Mac OS X 10.5.7 near done?

Apple is nearly finished with work on the Mac OS X 10.5.7 update, seeding efforts indicate. Developers are said to have received build 9J47 on Friday, only four days after 9J44. This Tuesday is said to have seen the release of build 9J50, a sign that Apple may have a rapidly diminishing number of fixes to test and implement. Most developer builds of v10.5.7 have been issued only on a weekly basis.

The 9J47 distribution is said to have fixed just three signficant problems, such as the handling of login item preferences and Ethernet performance on Mac Pros. 9J50 addresses only one, that being a difficulty with Bluetooth networking. A total of 108 fixes have so far been recorded for v10.5.7, producing a 443MB download for computers running v10.5.6, and a 730MB file for all other Leopard owners.

    guinea pigs

    I think I'll let the guinea pigs play with this one before I (potentially) repeat the mistake of upgrading to 10.5.6. Do the 108 fixes relate to things they broke in that update?

    hope its soon

    I am sick of restarting Mail every hour to kill the Zombie processes it creates with each new message since 10.5.6 was released. You'd think this would have been an intermediate fix, but Cupertino apparently doesn't find this to be a 'major' problem. :(
