[Updated] Apple Releases Mac OS 9.2.1 Update

[Updated] Apple Releases Mac OS 9.2.1 Update

by , 9:00 PM EDT, August 21st, 2001

[Update: Observer David Nelson found a direct link for downloading the update. Those who have tried it are reporting MUCH faster downloads in our forums. Also, we have a list of changes in the update that will be published at 6:00 AM tomorrow morning.]

Apple has released a stealth update for Classic Mac OS. The company's Web site is now suggesting that users upgrade to version 9.2.1. Version 9.2 was only released in Apple's latest hardware revisions to its iMac and PowerMac lines. Version 9.2.1 apparently solves whatever issues were keeping Apple from releasing version 9.2 to the public at large.

As of this writing, the update is not available via the Classic Software Update Control panel, and we have had difficulty starting the download through Apple's Web site. The company has also not issued a list of changes in the new OS, but as soon we know more, we will post it.

You can find links to upgrading at Apple's new AppleCare section. Note that you may be required to sign up for an AppleCare account in order to access the download. AppleCare accounts are free, and most online tech support from Apple now requires an AppleCare account.
