While puttering about this morning, I noticed in the notes for Delicious Library 2 – yes, I use it, and yes, I know I don’t really need it – that it prefers 10.5.3.  ‘10.5.3?’ I asked myself.  ‘But that’s not out yet….’ Ah, but Software Update […]

While puttering about this morning, I noticed in the notes for Delicious Library 2 – yes, I use it, and yes, I know I don’t really need it – that it prefers 10.5.3.  ‘10.5.3?’ I asked myself.  ‘But that’s not out yet….’

Ah, but Software Update says it is!  Bringing a host of fixes, including the long- and impatiently-awaited fixes to NVidia graphics cards, it should be a very, very worthwhile bump indeed for many users of newer Macs.

For full info, see the Apple documentation here.  10.5.3 is available as a 420 mb update through Software Update, and (hopefully soon) as both a delta and a standalone update on Apple’s site.

Check back here for updates on any problems if you prefer to be cautious and let others try it out first.

  1. Appleníaco » Saiu o 10.5.3! Wednesday, May 28, 2008

    [...] indo à notícia, estava eu brincando com o meu recém-baixado NetNewsWire, quando vi um post no TUAW: 10.5.3 Drops! Quase morri do coração. Fui logo abrindo o Software Update, e tirei até uma ScreenShot para [...]

  2. Nice catch eagle eye! Man, that’s pretty crazy – I was just wondering when that was gonna be released.

  3. argh! I want it to test out the changes to dl2, but this initial mozy upload is taking FOREVERRRRRR, gonna be at least another day.

    so what are the changes with dl2 anyone?

  4. I’m having problems ever since I put 10.5.3 on, which is too bad, because I was looking forward to it FIXING problems!

  5. I don’t have any problems at all. It has fixed some of things that annoyed me most, the last weeks…

  6. Holy Schnauzer, 420Mb?

  7. BTW:

    “Fixes a font issue that could result in Helvetica Narrow being used in applications instead of Helvetica.”

    Good! iWeb and Pages were driving me crazy with this.

  8. seems to be working fine now. After the initial install and restart both Mail and Safari froze and had to be force quit multiple times. After one (or two?) reboots it seems to work fine.

  9. So far so good on my Quad Core hackintosh. Slightly higher (~3-5%) scores on Xbench too!

  10. I’ve seen a reintroduction of sleep problems with 10.5.3. The situation seemed to have improved in 10.5.2, but under 10.5.3 I’ve have just witnessed my Intel iMac waking up from sleep to run Time Machine.
