Surprise, Mac users — Apple released an update to OS X this afternoon and it is now available for download via Software Update. The update to Leopard, 10.5.8, seems to be a relatively minor one with the following changes listed in the updater:

  • compatibility and reliability issues when joining AirPort networks.
  • an issue that could cause some monitor resolutions to no longer appear in Displays System Preferences.
  • issues that may affect Bluetooth reliability.

The install will also upgrade users to Safari 4.0.2. Woo hoo. Apple listed two new support entries related to the update for those looking for more details. They can be found here and here. Get a move on, Apple fans.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
