The Mac Observer Spin:

We are happy to see Apple release an update of this nature so swiftly after the release of Jaguar. Some Mac users get tense with frequent updates, but we see them as a demonstration of Apple's commitment to dealing with issues that crop up in Mac OS X as they arrive. This is especially true with security related issues, such as the improvements to Kerberos.
