Apple did not release the Mac OS X 10.5.7 update on Friday, as it was rumored, but it did so yesterday, Tuesday the 12th of May, the same day that Adobe issued a security patch for its Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader software applications. Alongside Mac OS X 10.5.7, Apple release several other updates: security update 2009-002 for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, Safari 3.2.3 for Mac, Windows and a Safari 4 Beta security update.

Before we get into some technical details regarding these updates, I have to say one thing: what an interesting first half of May this has been. We saw Windows 7 Release Candidate be released to the general public, and after some testing the first bug showed its ugly head, we saw the release of Linux 7 Mint Release Candidate, and now we see the release of Mac OS X 10.5.7. An offering from every OS (operating system) camp: Microsoft, Apple, and Linux.


Mac OS X 10.5.7 highlights:
- Enhanced security, stability and performance.
- Additional RAW image support for 3rd party cameras.
- Macs with Nvidia graphics have improved video playback performance.
- Enhanced reliability and accuracy of Unit Converter, Stocks, Weather and Movies Dashboard widgets.
- Solved issues for: logging into Gmail, syncing contacts with Yahoo!, Expansion Slot Utility for Mac Pro correctly reports PCIe slot config.
- Improved network performance and stability.
- Improved Finder search results for network volumes.
- Directory Service and Client Management improvements.
- Enhanced Parental Controls consistency and app restrictions.

Security Update 2009-002 for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, as the name so adequately points out, is a security-only update meant to keep you safe from all the various dangers you can encounter in your day-to-day computer usage. The Safari Beta 4 and Safari 3.2.3 updates are security-only updates as well and address a few vulnerabilities within the software.
