Apple Updates Panther To 10.3.1 To Fix FileVault, Printing, WebDAV, & FW 800 Issues

by , 4:15 PM EST, November 10th, 2003

Two and a half weeks after its initial release, Apple has updated Panther to version 10.3.1. The update is intended to address issues relating to FileVault, printing, WebDAV, and the persnickety FireWire 800 issues that were discussed last week. From the Software Update control panel:

The 10.3.1 Update delivers enhanced functionality and improved reliability for the following applications, services and technologies: FileVault, Printing, WebDAV, and FireWire 800 drives. This update also includes the latest Security Updates.

Important Note: Apple has identified an issue with external FireWire hard drives using the Oxford 922 bridge chip-set with firmware version 1.02 that can result in the loss of data stored on the disk drive. Even with the improvements available in this update, Apple recommends you update the firmware on your FireWire drive. Please contact your drive manufacturer for more information.

The update weighs in at a meager 1.3 MB, and can be found in Panther's Software Update control panel.
