Apple Releases Mac OS X 10.2.2: Updates iChat, Address Book, Mail, Print Center, & More. Mac OS

Apple has released Mac OS X 10.2.2, an update that includes several improvements. The update packs improvements for several of Appleis software offerings like iChat, Address Book, Mail, and printing services, but it also includes a walloping new feature called Journalling.

The upgrades to the applications include many bug fixes, as well as a couple of new features. Journalling is a feature being included with Mac OS X Server 10.2.2 that allows the user to recover lost data, or an entirely lost system, easily, or more easily, as the case may be. Journalling is not new to the computing world, but it is new to the Mac OS, and will be a good tool for Apple to further move into the corporate market.
