Mozilla.org has been forced by Apple to release yet another release candidate of its next-generation Firefox 3 browser. Firefox 3.0RC3, released on Wednesday for all operating systems, offers a single bug fix, a workaround for a bug introduced in the Apple's latest Mac OS X 10.5.3 update, released a few weeks ago. First noted by MacNN, the bug, which causes some systems to hang or crash at start-up or shutdown, has been tracked to changes Apple made to "VerifiedDownloadPlugin" in Mac OS X 10.5.3. While available for all systems, the workaround for the Mac OS X 10.5.3 bug is the only change each release and may affect the release date of the browser, which is set for middle of this month.
Apple on Wednesday seeded a sixth beta version to its iPhone Software Development Kit, entitled 9M2192 beta 6. According to iLounge, the release requires developers to upgrade to the latest version of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard – 10.5.3, released earlier on in the day – in order to use the new seed. Developers can find the update at the iPhone Dev Center, with the download weighing in at 1.19GB. Release notes were not made public, but are available for developers to view.
