New Mac OS X 10.5.7 dev seed brings minute fixes

updated 09:30 am EDT, Thu April 23, 2009

Mac OS X 10.5.7 9J56

Apple continues to seed developer versions of Mac OS X 10.5.7, in spite of recent signs that the update may be nearing completion. A new build, 9J56, is now available and said to fix problems with Bluetooth compatibility and stability. A number of Mac users have complained about inconsistent Bluetooth connections, on systems such as the new Mac mini; the problem may, however, extend as far back as the original MacBook.

The 9J56 build is also said to solve an issue with AFP and Personal File Sharing volumes, which may not always be properly identified as Time Machine shares. Three other fixes are present, but only solve comparatively minor issues such as absent information in crash logs. The total number of corrections in v10.5.7 to date is over 110; still unresolved is the lack of compatibility with the Safari 4 beta.

    This one's sure taking a while. A good sign, I hope.

    I hope they undo the "fix" from the last Airport update with 10.5.7. Ever since the most recent Airport update, my connection from my MBP C2D to my TimeCapsule has been horrible.

    Airport problem...

    Why didn't you create a clone first, so that if there was a problem, you just reload your clone?? That's what I always do. It's also recommended by APPLE....

    Cant really blame anyone for your problem, although I will agree that Apples quality of late has been pretty darn "SUCKY"!!!

    Where in the world does Apple recommend that one clone their hard drives before installing any and all updates posted by Apple. One would think if an update required a clone just in case, it would indicate the update perhaps shouldn't be released.

    Right, it's not Apple's fault they produced an update that screwed up the guy's airport, it's the guy's fault for trusting that Apple's updates would be a good thing, not a bad thing.

    Apple may not use the exact term 'clone', but I'd be suprised if they don't suggest you back up somewhere in the update preamble - though I haven't actually checked.

    Anyhow even if they don't it's good practice.
