Apple preps OS X 10.5.2

Apple has begun distributing to developers a massive 362MB update for Leopard. OS X 10.5.2 build 9C7 includes over 70 fixes for problems related to the OS. According to Apple insider, developers have been told to, “focus their testing efforts on an expansive list of components running some 37 items long. Among them were Data Detectors, the Mac OS X Dock, the Finder, grammar checking, iCal, iChat, Mail, Parental Controls, Quick Look, Rosetta, Safari, Time Machine, and Leopard’s 802.11 AirPort implementation.”

Build 9C7 resolves many printing problems such as modular printing and AirPort shared printing. It also fixes a number of issues related to iMail. There is no definite date as to when this update will be released, but speculation points toward sometime around Macworld in Jan.
