build one week after the previous Leopard seed (9J27
), World of Apple is reporting. As usual, the Mac-focused site also got hold of the seed notes for the latest developer build of Leopard. Those can be found below.
According to the reporting site, “the rapid development of Mac OS X 10.5.7 suggests a public release before the end of March.” The fixed issues seem to have piled up nicely. The seed notes list around 80 fixes spanning the entire development of OS X 10.5.7, six of which have been fixed in the current build (9J30). One issue still haunts 10.5.7, namely the unsupported Safari 4 Beta. As for the focus areas, this time around developers are required to use their testing skills on Flash Player, USB and Flash Drives, iCal, Widgets, and more.
