Mac OS X 10.5.7 Update - Now Available!

Yep, as of yesterday the OS X 10.5.7 update is now available for all you Mac users out there. It doesn't do a whole lot more, seeing as Snow Leopard (10.6.x) is going to be discussed at WWDC '09 in San Francisco is less than 3 weeks and probably released, but it does fix a lot of annoying little bugs we've had to put up with in the past. I installed it this morning, didn't notice much of a difference, but I've only used my MBP for the web a little today, so I wouldn't notice...

Anyway, here is a list of things the update brings us that Apple released along with the update:
