Apple OS 10.5.6 OS update makes Leopard more stable, compatible and secure

mac_patchEarlier today Apple released update 10.5.6 for Mac OS X. The patch includes many a fix to problems that only mildly annoyed users, some that make us look forward to our future with the in-office MacBook, and others that land squarely in the “Eh” category. Still, improvements are fun and thanks to the now-revised Chess.app, I’ve discovered a new pastime. Other updates to make you hug your Mac even tighter include:

  • Automatic MobileMe syncing that begins within a minute of making changes to your contacts, calenders, or bookmarks.
  • Better performance for AT&T 3G cards
  • Ratcheted-up DVD player performance
  • Boosts AirPort reliability in large wireless networks
  • Fixes for fuzzy gaming playback with some ATI graphics card
  • Better Mail functionality
  • Removal of the iChat bug that boots you if you set your status as “invisible”

Check out Apple for more details. Hat Tip: Gizmodo
