10.5.3? Where's my 10.6?

(I think I'll now take the leap to Leopard from Tiger for all my pre-Leopard machines).

It's smoother than before but it now starts up 2 seconds startup and slower GeekBench speeds. Hmmm.

That's not too bad considering all of the fixes. It could be worse. Just think if we all still had to contend with dial up. Heh heh heh!!

i am NOT happy with this update so far. First off... after the 2nd restart it had a kernel panic (2.33 mbp). Second off the menu lost it's Anti-alias text somewhere. The menus are less transluscent (something I liked), It doesn't feel as snappy as 10.5.1.

Can someone tell me where you toggle the menubar being transluscent vs solid?

Got a good laugh at that. Great to see some humour around here.

I had some problems restarting after it downloaded but once I got by that it installed and rebooted okay.
post #20 of 198
Hooray!!! Stacks has been fixed! Yes I said "fixed", because before it was seriously crippled. Thank you Apple for listening and not waiting for 10.6 to fix this!

There is now an option in System Preferences => Desktop for turning Menu bar translucency on and off, but that won't affect the drop-down and contextual menus. They do seem less "translucency" than before. No way to change that until a hack comes around.

My Menu Bar text looks the same. It does seem less snappier than 10.5.1 and programs are taking much longer to open. I've open up everything in my Applications folder and I'm now going to restart. Perhaps it will feel the same after that.

UPDATE:

I found the menubar translucent toggle in Desktop / Screen Saver prefs. I disabled translucent and the menubar AA text is fixed... however the AA text in the menus is still messed up. Gonna try the graphics update and see if that helps. When you disable the translucent menubar, the dropshadow stands out more. Makes it very UGLY and distracting imo. I tried the graphics update, didn't fix it. How did apple miss something like this? I've had multiple problems in 20 minutes with this update. /shakes head.

Heh you beat me

After updating to 10.5.2 can't launch iSync anymore... Does anyone have this problem?
post #24 of 198
iSync seems to launch for me.

I can't believe apple missed this many things. I smell an incremental update coming very quickly.

You can never know if the problems people cite are due to the Apple update or to some system modification by the end user. But in any case, this is the biggest in complexity Mac OS X point update so far, so there may be indeed many missed things. I will wait anyway before updating.

why do u guys have a probelm with it being translucent? looks fine to me.

After installing the Graphics update and doing a soft reboot from the desktop it no longer seems to be sluggish. I can't say it's faster than, but the UI feels 'as' fast as 10.5.1.

Will do another GeekBench and Xbench test.

downloading update as I type this.. will repost anything I find that is weird after I install it...
post #30 of 198
I don't know if this is new or not... but I just discovered that command-clicking on a "stack" opens the Finder window. Thank god!!! So annoying always having to open the stack and then click the "show in finder" button.
post #31 of 198
It's always been that way. Lots of new Stacks options though.

ok. cool. still... very glad I discovered that. oh... and I LOVE the new "view as folder" option. I find it a lot easier to recognize at a glance which stack is my apps and which is downloads and which is docs... etc. I could never keep them straight before. Usually had to roll-over first to see which stack was which.

i have no idea why anyone was complaining about the translucent bar??? i have the desktop set to change every minute and i think it looks cool that it shows through the bar. no visibility problems what-so-ever... some of you guys need to lay off the meds!

also, stacks worked fine for me! was never crippled. i like the fan view.

i just don't get some people, they whine about anything and everything, lol...

I never had that problem. Did you know if you right click a stack it gives options for sorting, etc... I was able to always keep mine organized and use stacks all the time, its become an indespensible part of my daily life just like expose. I never saw a problem there, in fact I am still going to use it as a fan, and its gonna be organized regardless...

Installed. Did the full combo update.

Wireless issues appear fixed!
No iSync problems (I don't use iDisk so can't comment.. but sync is fine)
post #39 of 198
Installed updates so far so good! WoW! All the drop-down menu bars are less transparent! Nice!

Not me. But I bet it's fairly easy to do through the command line if you Google it,

Edit: I misread the question. Thought you wanted to change the degree of transparency, not just have it "on" or "off".
