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.
