Apple has just released 10.5.2 via Software Update.

There are a slew of changes/fixes, some of which are:

  • Improved Airport connection reliability and stability
  • Improved Dashboard widget performance
  • Updated Stacks with a List view option, a Folder view option, and an updated background for Grid view
  • Ability to turn off transparency of menu bar
  • Reduction in overall menu transparency
  • Adds a menu bar option for accessing Time Machine features

The big one that most people will be excited about is the ability to turn off transparency in the menu bar.

Post in the comments if you have any issues with this upgrade.

    Well it is not all happy days after i Updatede to 10.5.2, now my Caps Lock and Num Lock bottoms are broken. By broken I mean that when they are deactived the light is on and when I turn off the light well then the bottoms are activated. Does anyone else got this error ? and if so … anyone know how to fix it ?? ;-)

  2. The Mail.app SMTP bug still exists, despite Apple addressing the issue.

    Mail v3.2(919/919.2)

  3. It looks like network drives can be used for Time Machine backups now. Is this new, or am I missing something?

  5. So far no issues. Good to have a solid menu bar again.

    @Ocellnurl Glad to hear that network drives are working for Time Machine, that confirms the thought most had that this would be resolved.

  6. All updates loaded. No ill effects. Am digging the normal menubar again. Going to try EVE with the graphics update loaded.

  7. PathFinder 4.8.3 (414) crashes repeatedly on 10.5.2 on my MBP.

  8. On my iBook G4, I don’t have the option to turn the transparency off, only on my iMac. Is this an intel specific feature? Anyone else with Power PC notice this?

  9. Some MacFUSE-related software is not looking so good after 10.5.2 update. Intermittent success getting stuff to show in /Volumes and ExpanDrive just seems to churn with no positive outcome.

  10. @Steve, I didn’t know the G4 machines supported transparency, I know my G4 mini doesn’t. Anyway, isn’t it something to do with QE, rather than the CPU you’re using?
