Apple Inc. this week began testing Mac OS X 10.5.3 Update, a third maintenance and security update to its relatively new Leopard operating system that already bundles over 75 bug fixes and code corrections.

The Mac maker on Thursday informed its vast developer community of the availability of Mac OS X 10.5.3 Build 9D10, a pre-release copy of the software update featuring a core focus list spanning some two dozen core components.

Among those components in need of evaluation, people familiar with the matter tell AppleInsider, are AddressBook, AppleScript, Audio, Back To My Mac, Dashboard, the Dock, DVD Player, Finder, Graphics, iCal, Mail, Portable Home Directories, Printing, Rosetta, Spaces, Spotlight, Time Machine, and VoiceOver.

In a set of developer notes reported to have accommodated the update, Apple is also said to have listed 75 code corrections that have already been baked into the first external build, including two aimed at critical memory leaks within CoreAnimation and iCal.

Other fixes target Dashboard, iCal alarms and syncing, Installer App, Spotlight indexing, PDFs within the Preview App, Mail alarms, Spaces, Stacks and the Dock.

Mac OS X 10.5.3 is presumed for a release sometime in April or May.

If you look over on slashdot you'll see there is a security conference this week in Canada (I think). They have a contest to see which machine can be hacked into the fastest. The winner (or loser depending on how you look at it) was an Apple MacBook air. Going to 10.5.3 may or may not have anything to do with that. In fact, they say the culprit was Safari. Nevertheless even though Safari lets you in the kernel is still responsible for limiting the damage.

On the other hand it seems likely that 10.5.3 was on the drawing board before this week so maybe it's just a coincidence.

The prize is not just a MacBook Air, but 2 other computers (a choice of any of them) and $$$ money, see the news posted here: http://forum.insanel...showtopic=96121

They can choose from 3 laptops, but who wants to win any of the other 2, yuck

Actually a pretty decent prize. Beats a t-shirt. The Vista machine fell, too. The only one not successfully hacked into was running ubuntu linux.

that isn't a samba bug, that is a security feature.

but yes, that is annoying. There should be an option for using password instead of bullying the users to use it.
