Mac OS X 10.5.4 Fixes File Saving Issues, More

by , 4:40 PM EDT, June 30th, 2008

Apple released Mac OS X 10.5.4 on Monday afternoon. The Leopard update fixes an issue that corrupted Adobe CS3 documents saved to remote servers, and improved reliability when connecting to 5GHz AirPort Extreme networks.

The update also addressed a long list of issues including:

  • Includes additional RAW image support for several cameras.
  • Addresses an issue that may result in a partially installed X11 application.
  • Improves L2TP VPN client reliability.
  • Addresses AirPort issues that may result in slower performance in Logic Studio or MainStage.
  • Improves overall iCal reliability for meeting requests, cancellation notices, delegation, and syncing with iPhone.
  • Resolves an issue that prevents deleting an iCal event without notifying the creator.
  • Addresses an issue in which events in all calendars affect availability. A checkbox now enables information-only calendars to be transparent from free/busy lookups.
  • Resolves a UI issue preventing delegated calendars from showing up as a separate window.
  • Addresses an issue with copying and pasting attendees from one event to another.
  • Resolves an issue in which iCal may not delete events after a specified time interval, even when set to do so in iCal preferences.
  • Addresses an issue in which To Dos cannot be marked private.
  • Addresses a potential performance issue when loading secure web pages.
  • Resolves issues that may be encountered when accessing secure web pages with client certificates that reside on a smart card.
  • Addresses an issue in which switching from a space with a Finder window keeps the Finder as the active application instead of the application residing in the destination space.
  • Fixes an issue in which dragging an application from the list of application assignments in Spaces System Preferences does not assign the application to the desired space.
  • Resolves an Exposé issue that may result in only a subset of windows being shown.

Mac OS X 10.5.4 is a free update for Leopard users. It is available via the Software Update application, but is not yet available as a downloadable installer from the Apple Support Web site.
