notes:

Windows on external displays connected to some PowerBook computers are drawn better.

The Bluetooth menu bar item works better when a Bluetooth USB adapter is disconnected and reconnected.

Addresses a situation in which an external FireWire storage device would not become available (mount) and this message would appear: "A disk attempting to mount as 'unknown' has failed. Please use Disk Utility to check the disk."

Addresses an issue in which some Bluetooth devices may not be available after the computer wakes from sleep.

Addresses an issue in which some Bluetooth keyboards may show a delayed response when you press a key after the computer wakes from sleep.

Addresses an issue in which some iBook computers could make a clicking sound when using Mac OS X 10.2.5 or 10.2.6.Reduces a potential delay when removing some devices from the Bluetooth pairing list.

Addresses a potential issue in which an audio application can unexpectedly quit when a USB- or FireWire-based audio device is disconnected.

Bluetooth preferences correctly displays the Bluetooth menu bar item's status if the item was enabled elsewhere.

Includes several enhancements for Safari.

Includes support for USB 2.0 devices, including PCI and PC cards for computers that do not include USB 2.0 hardware.

Mine came back up very quickly.

It fixed a few issues I was having with the Apple Menu.

I even left all my haxies in my preference panel (Default Folder, iKey, Detour, More Internet, TinkerTool).

So far so good. . .

FWIIW, the build number is 6R65.
post #12 of 92
if you have a G5 *don not* update. see the notes. 10.2.8 is good for G3/G4 only.
post #13 of 92
Funny... my G5/1.8 arrived two weeks ago with 10.2.7 build 6S80 on it. Why is 10.2.8 a step back to 6R?

People on other sites (such as MacRumors) are saying that the update includes a patch for the SSH problem found last week. If so, where does that leave us G5 owners?

How would I find out what version of SSH I have on a G5 with 10.2.7 to see if it is a newer version than the afflicted SSH? UNIX gurus?

In the terminal type:

ssh -V

Ho, hum. My guess is due to the size of this update Panther is not coming soon.

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but us G5ers are still waiting for a patch. The curse of being on the bleeding edge
post #19 of 92
I'm trying to figure out if its just me... but the brushed metal looks like crap in this build. Its far more...i dunno, textured! like, speckled sort of, and not the nice smooth look that it had before. Also, for some reason, the quicktime file on my desktop got changed to an OLD SKOOL quicktime movie icon! like, all pixelated with the top corner turned down, and a pixelated blue "Q" in the middle of a peice of film...with MOVIE written across the bottom!!! what gives!


i'm gonna reboot and see if its still messed up

Hmm, check to see if your screen has reverted from Millions to Thousands of colors?

Yup. the display colours had been shifted from millions to thousands during the install. I switched it back, and it made no difference, so restarted and now everything is pretty again. the old skool quicktime icon has changed back to normal now too.. weird. someone on another board noted that their powerpoint icons on the desktop turned all pixelated and ugly as well... but, everything is peachy on this powerbook now no word yet on snappiness.... but i'm sure CNN will cut away from regularly scheduled programs to let us know when the verdict is in....

FWIW, Quicktime launched in a single bounce for me on a lowly 700 MHz G4 iMac.

There is no correlation with this update and the forthcoming release of Panther. By all accounts, Panther is coming late next month. Ho hum to you!

Same here, same computer.

This update seems to have provided a nice little speed boost.

No one has mentioned yet that the Keyboard and Mouse pref panes have been consolidated into a single pane, which has a Bluetooth tab as well. I thought that was pretty cool.

i used to have this "problem" in Safari, where pages that specified Verdana as the font, in smaller sizes, appeared aliased. and i even tried changing the default sizes in preferences. it all seems to be fixed now; all fonts are nice and smooth and readable.

Finally downloaded 10.2.8... I was on a 56k modem!
I wonder if Safari is faster in build 85.5?

Wow! Nice update. I mean REALLY nice. Tons of added features and even a little speed boost for my Pismo ... at least it "feels" faster.

Panther better be AMAZING, or I'm going to stick with 10.2.8 for a while until the first few bugs are worked out of Panther ... maybe 10.3.2 or later.

I just hope this Jaguar update is a good sign for how incredible Panther will be ... and not a reminder of how great Jaguar is and how Panther will need to have the usual bugs worked out like Jaguar has needed over the past year.

I don't want to purchase a new OS if the benefits don't STRONGLY outweigh the frustration caused by the bugs that creep in before the second or third update.

I haven't seen too much of a difference in it. But maybe I'll stumble across something...

I think the 20% speed increase I've seen on two computers installed with panther is worth it at least.
