Apple posts MacBook Air, Java updates

Air update comes on launch of new hardware

Even though the 2010 MacBook Air has only just been released, Apple has already released a matching software update. The code fixes two graphics glitches: one in which a system freezes while playing iMovie trailers, and another in which a freeze is triggered by waking from sleep when an external display is connected. The file is 368KB, and applies only to the 2010 Air.

Two Java updates have meanwhile been posted for Leopard and Snow Leopard. The Snow Leopard update, Update 3, is a 78MB download that upgrades Jave SE 6 to v1.6.0_20. Aside from compatibility and reliability fixes, it also deals with multiple security holes, found in the Java sandbox, the handling of Mach RPC messages, and applet window bounds.

The Leopard patch is labeled Update 8, and pushes J2SE 5 to v1.5.0_26, and Java SE 6 to v1.6.0_22. Fixes are essentially identical to those in the equivalent Snow Leopard code. The file is 119MB, and requires Mac OS X 10.5.8.
