Thread Starter 
Apple on Monday afternoon release iTunes 7.5, which includes bug fixes and support for Phase, a new interactive music game. Meanwhile, the company also released QuickTime 7.3 distributions for Leopard, Tiger, Panther, and Windows.

iTunes 7.5

iTunes 7.5 [41.1MB for Mac, 51.8MB for Windows] features the ability to activate iPhone wherever service is offered and support for Phase, a new interactive music game designed exclusively for iPod nano (third generation), iPod classic, and iPod (fifth generation).

Apple also said that iTunes 7.5 "includes bug fixes to improve stability and performance," but did not specify what those fixes address.

QuickTime 7.3

QuickTime 7.3 addresses seven critical security issues and delivers:
Support for iTunes 7.5Updated support for creating iPhone-compatible web contentUpdated JavaScript support in the QuickTime Web Plug-inNumerous bug fixes
The update, which is recommended for all QuickTime 7.x users, is available as a 52.6MB download for users of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, a 49.3MB download for users of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, and a 51.5MB download for users of Mac OS X 10.3 Panther.

QuickTime 7.3 for Windows is also available [20.3MB].

But.....Where is Mac OS X 10.4.11 ???

I want the final version of Safari 3.0 as well as the updates and fixes to the core system. Seemed like all work (or published seeds) have stopped on it.

Perhaps Safari 3.0 is a Leopard only feature....

Anyone know the status???

Something makes me wonder whether 7.5 is a precursor to iPhone firmware 1.1.2 as well...

Hooray for breaking the unlocks and giving consumers less choice.

Quicktime 7.3 does that too, if it didn't already, and I don't know if it did or not.

I hate that. Our eyes are attracted to light not darkness. when you select a window it darkens, and other windows brighten (to lighter shades) this is very counter intuitive.

The window you select to be at the forefront seems to blend into the mess of windows behind as it is darker. Bad design IMHO.

Rant over

I hope this update doesn't dash my hopes for a a Jailbroken CDN iPhone...

Although Leopard is Cool, i would have preferred that killer app. Spaces is very cool, but not Killer. Hugely improved speech commands would have been such an app. Commands to easily search local, network, and the web. Dictate memos, iCals, e-mails, and more.

Yes, that would have stood the world on end...

Safari 3 is in 10.4.11 and will soon be finalised for Windows.

...Why am I not seeing this new game anywhere? It's not showing up in the iPod Games section of the iTunes store, and no new iPod software update that might carry it... what gives here?

I have to say that I too am tapping my foot waiting impatiently for 10.4.11. I just hope that they don't delay it so long that they change their minds about releasing it. That would be crazy.
AppleInsider = Apple-in-cider. It's a joke!

I've used macs since 1985 when I typed up my first research paper. Never used anything else never wanted to.

I would disagree with your rant. I think that apple have got it right, as when a window is inactive it looks washed out but when you select a window it darkens which I think gives the window presence. In the sense that it is bolder. Its like read text on a white piece of paper you're not attracted to the white paper but to the dark text.

Did anybody else notice a 'Windows-like' message after the update saying 'In order to complete the installation, your computer will need to restart'? I guess this is a major update and hence a restart may be necessary, but still shouldn't Leopard (being Unix-based and all) be able to handle it without the need for a restart?

I never saw a message like that.

QuickTime updates have allways required a restart. Most likely because they modify system level frameworks.
