Apple releases OS 10.5.2

Published by • February 12th, 2008 RSS News Feed

Apple released a bevy of improvements to its Leopard operating system earlier this week. Coming in at over 300 mb, the 10.5.2 is one of the largest OS updates ever issued by Apple. The bulk of the update is geared towards fixing minor quirks in some of the Mac’s most used applications such as improved Airport connectivity, and more stable versions of iChat and Mail. One of the most popular updates is undoubtedly the Dock update, which updates the Stacks icon with a List view option, a Folder view option, and an updated background for Grid view. Not only that, but the dock now has a nifty translucent racing stripe. Check it out below.

One of the sexier updates is the option to turn off the translucent menu bar, a point of contention among Mac users since it was first announced. Menus have also become less transparent allowing for easier viewing. A complete listing of all the 10.5.2 fixes and updates can be found here on Apple’s website.
