Mac OS X 10.5.6 is available via Software Update

Apple's support page and Software Update appear to be a little bit hammered --- you know what that means: A new OS update!

Mac OS X 10.5.6 has just been released to Software Update. The ~190 MB update (assuming you are already running the latest version of OS X) offers up the following, according to Apple's Support Page:

  • Various improvements to performance and stability in Mail.app, iCal, Airport and Safari
  • Graphical improvements
  • DVD player performance improvements
  • A new Trackpad panel in System Preferences for portable Macs
  • Time Machine and MobileMe improvements
  • Other various fixes.

The whole support page lays out the improvements with more accuracy than we often see from Apple and there are security updates too.

My download has just finished and my dock is bouncing, so I'm off to update my system. Post your results in the comments!

Thanks Tyler and Mike!
