Apple set to release Mac OS X 10.5.8 update?

updated 01:55 pm EDT, Tue July 28, 2009

OS X developer build

Apple has seeded Mac OS X 10.5.8 Build 9L30 to developers, following an earlier build released just a few days ago, according to MacRumors. The update is said to address an issue relating to external monitors waking from sleep mode. No other significant changes have been made, potentially indicating the company is ready to offer the final version to the public.

Mac OS X 10.5.8 is expected to be the final Leopard update before Apple launches version 10.6 in September. The Snow Leopard operating system will feature a variety of code optimizations, along with several tweaks and improvements to the interface.

Snow Leopard will carry a single-license upgrade price of $29, while a family pack will cost $49. Apple may continue to release Leopard updates to address compatibility issues or security vulnerabilities, even after OS X 10.6 ships.

    I thought this was a news site, not a rumor site?
    Is Apple set to release it or not? If you wannabe journo kids don't know, don't post it.

    ... how some read the site mentioned in the article and go off on here about MacNN being a rumors site!

    If you would read the article (and its supporting threads to date) one might realize that this article is merely pointing out that OS X 10.5.8 is winding down in the development cycle and is due for release soon. This is NOT a rumor, just an update and a validation of what has been said on other sites... for those who may have missed it!
