Safari 5.0.5, Xcode 4.0.2, Mac OS X security updates released by Apple

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Apple on Thursday released a number of security and maintenance updates for its software, including Safari 5.0.5, Xcode 4.0.2, and Security Update 2011-002 for Mac OS X.

Safari 5.0.5 is available via Software Update or direct from Apple. It includes the latest security updates for the browser, which runs on Mac OS X 10.6.5, Mac OS X 10.5.8, Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.

A number of security updates for Snow Leopard and Leopard are also available. They are recommended for all users, and links to them are included below:
Snow Leopard Security Update 2011-002
Leopard - Client Security Update 2011-002
Leopard - Server Security Update 2011-002
Finally, along with the newly released iOS 4.3.2, which also arrived on Thursday, Apple has also issued an update for its Xcode development software. Users can download Xcode 4.0.2 through the Mac App Store, where it sells for $4.99.

Less than 35MB for Safari and Security Update. I wish they would do that for iOS, too.

The doc detailing security patch is not yet available on Apple's website.

Yes! What is it with those ios updates that require a full system download and re-install? With backups the whole process takes an eon.

I would *love* if they did that for Xcode. 4.0.1 was 4.5 GB, same size as original. Don't know about 4.0.2 yet, likely the same size.

I wish they would do that for Xcode. The 4.0.1 upgrade was a full 4.3gb download. 4.0.2 hasn't shown up on the App Store yet, but I suspect it will be an equally hefty download...

Im going to ignore the Xcode update for that very reason.

Great minds... and all that. Or do you guys sit next to each other?

The good is new software! Yippie.

The bad is 5GB of data to download.

I don't mind the iOS update as that is viable and avoids issues that have plaques other OSes over the years. But 4.5 GB fir every XCode update is crap.

Is it an indication of how secure Mac OS is that the security update is only 4MB!

Maybe it only gets tiny bugs

It looks like we will have to wait for a 5.5 or 6.0 before the official release of a Safari that is HTML 5 Parser complete.

I'm so tired of people bitching about "the size" of iOS updates.

They do it that way cause:

- it's easier
- it's less likely to go wrong
- it gives everyone the exact same OS
- it doesn't take that much longer

Seriously, it only takes ten minutes tops.

Most of that time is taken up by the same sort of processes that would have to run even if it was a smaller make-package. So it's like ten minutes versus 7 or 8 minutes, and the upside is huge both for Apple and for the users in general. Changing the process by making it more complicated and more error prone, just so a few antsy types won't get upset (and lets face it they will get upset anyway), would be foolish.

Not everybody has a super fast internet connection. It takes me six hours to download the iOS update and three days to download the Xcode update. As "green" as Apple likes to be, you would think they would try to minimize download sizes to save on the carbon footprint their network traffic generates. It isn't very hard to offer incremental updates.

It's getting ridiculous. A small point update keeps on requiring a 4GB download. Bandwidth doesn't grow on trees.

iOS updates I can handle, I understand that. Xcode updates, now that's harder to swallow.

Updated. Except for bloody Xcode.

Ever since the mac update, my iWork will not work. The program shows that it is running, but there is no window.

I'm sick of Xcode 4. I have downloaded prerelease, 4.0, 4.0.1 and now 4.0.2 and they all have the same bug which makes them crash instantly with my Core Data data model. Fix your sh*t Apple! And they're not small distros either. I'm not downloading a single 'nother Xcode till 4.1 at least.
