    Re: Mac Update leopard users rejoice

    Here are the details and it fixed my Razor mouse. Yahoo

    About the Mac OS X 10.5.1 Update
    The Mac OS X 10.5.1 Update updates Mac OS X Leopard version 10.5 to version 10.5.1

    The 10.5.1 Update is recommended for all users running Mac OS X Leopard and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility and security of your Mac.

    For detailed information on security updates, please visit this website.

    Important: Read before installing

    You may experience unexpected results if you have third-party system software modifications installed, or if you've modified the operating system through other means. (This does not apply to normal application software installation.)
    The installation process should not be interrupted. If a power outage or other interruption occurs during installation, use the standalone installer (see below) from Apple Support Downloads to update.
    It is recommended that you backup your system prior to installing any updates.
    If issues occur during installation--for example, Software Update quits unexpectedly--please see this article.
    Installation

    To update to Mac OS X 10.5.1, use Software Update or the standalone installer. You only need to use one of these methods to update your computer.

    Software Update

    Software Update, located in the Apple menu, will automatically check for the latest Apple software using the Internet. (Software Update might have linked you to this article to learn more about the update.) If your computer is not up to date, software updates for your computer will appear that you can install. Note that an update's size may vary from computer to computer when installed using Software Update. Also, some updates must be installed prior to others, so you should run Software Update more than once to make sure you have all available updates.

    Standalone installer

    Download the update installer and run it manually. This is a useful option when you need to update multiple computers but only want to download the update once. These versions of the standalone installer are available from Apple Support Downloads.

    Mac OS X 10.5.1 Update updates Mac OS X 10.5 to 10.5.1.
    What's included?

    The following improvements for both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs are included in this update

    AirPort

    Allows password-protected accounts on AirPort Disks to show up on in the Finder's Shared Sidebar.
    Resolves an issue with saved passwords for wireless networks.
    Back to My Mac

    Improves the reliability of Back to My Mac-enabled Macs appearing in the Finder's Shared Sidebar.
    Improves compatibility with D-Link NAT gateways.
    Disk utilities

    Restores the functionality of the progress bar during permission repairs in Disk Utility.
    Addresses an issue that could produce an alert when creating disk images using Disk Utility or Terminal.
    Improves disk partitioning when multiple RAID sets are created on the same disk.
    iCal

    iCal alarms are now more reliably delivered via email.
    Resolves an issue when inviting attendees via a CalDAV account.
    Mail

    Improves stability when resizing columns in the message viewer or switching between Stationery templates in email messages.
    Addresses an issue in which attachments enclosed inside an HTML link may not be clickable in email messages.
    Fixes an issue with email accounts added using the "Simple Setup" feature in which messages cannot be sent due to an SMTP connection failure.
    Improves Smart Mailboxes compatibility with .Mac Sync, and addresses an issue with To Do's disappearing when using Smart Mailboxes.
    Resolves an issue with syncing Mail accounts with .Mac in which multiple On My Mac folders appear in the Mailbox pane.
    Networking

    Addresses an issue in which Microsoft Windows shared folders may be read-only when connected via SMB.
    Printing

    Resolves an issue in which user-selected values on Paper Feed PDE are reset to default while saving a custom preset.
    Security, Firewall

    Addresses a code signing issue; third-party applications can now run when included in the Application Firewall or when whitelisted in Parental Controls.
    In Security preferences' Firewall tab, the "Block All" option is now called "Allow Only essential services"
    Includes recent Apple security updates.
    System and Finder

    Addresses a potential data loss issue when moving files across partitions in the Finder.
    Resolves an issue with login after turning off FileVault for a specific user account.
    Improves compatibility with Adobe Flash-based uploaders used by .Mac Web Gallery and certain other websites and applications.
    Resolves a potential text drawing issue with certain Adobe Flash-based websites and applications.
    Time Machine

    Addresses formatting issues with certain drives used with Time Machine (specifically, single-partition MBR drives greater than 512 GB in size as well as NTFS drives of any size and partition scheme).
    Resolves an issue in which files restored in Time Machine may be restored to the backup hierarchy rather than the folders to which they belong.

    Re: Mac Update leopard users rejoice

    I was having issues with my Logitech MX Laser mouse after upgrading to Leopard. The previous driver used the dreaded Application Enhancer. They just released new software which is Leopard compatible and does NOT use Application Enhancer. The downside is you need to re-boot after installing it - I had only rebooted once since installing Leopard and was hoping to go for a few months....

    Here's the link that worked for me:

    but you might want to follow their path to make sure it's the right one for your mouse.

    Re: Mac Update leopard users rejoice

    I am pretty happy with Leopard both 10.5 and 10.5.1.
    Time machine is the nicest re-presentation of an automated backup scheme that I have seen outside of a commercial datacenter. My only beef is that the time machine discs sem to not be bootable.

    I think I am lucky as far as printers are concerned. I use an Epson SP2400 and it works well with the driver posted more than a year ago. Profiles work well, except that they broke when using the Lightroom 1.3 print module.

    I see reports that epson will release new Leopard drivers for some of their printers in December and February an wonder how what is now available for the 3800 and 4880 fare under 10.5.1.
