Mac OS X 10.5.6
Apple has released Mac OS 10.5.6. In my opinion, it should really be 10.5.0, because it is the first version of Mac OS 10.5 that has worked correctly. For example, the new mail sound plays when I get mail. I hadn’t heard that sound regularly since the days of Mac OS 10.4.
Other huge improvements in this release:
- Does not crash constantly like 10.5.5 has on my Mac Mini.
- Reclaims unused memory and manages memory much better, like on Mac OS 10.4.
- Graphics performance is noticeably improved.
- There is no longer a Windows XP-like hang upon logging in where I can’t do anything over over a minute, as other items load in the background.
