Mac OS X Apple has seeded the first build of Leopard 10.5.1. "Apple details a number of issues addressed in the seed. Specifically, there have been fixes to Mail Sync, Spotlight Index, Disk Management, DesktopServices and moving files across partitions, Text Drawing, iCal and CalDAV syncing, Keychain login, Read-Only Issue with SMB, AirPort 802.1X, Application Firewall, To-Do Notes, and Smart Mailboxes. This list of issues, however, is never exhaustive, so other bugs may have also been addressed in this seed."

It's interesting to note that of all the talk about Leopard, nobody points out that it comes a lot closer to "bringing teh snappy" than any previous release of OS X. The UI seems a lot faster than Tiger on my MacBook. Spotlight is way faster, and the Spotlight-powered search entries in the Finder are very usably fast, especially considering what they are. The Finder itself feels a lot more responsive than previous versions. And Quicklook is extremely snappy, even with large documents.

That said, Leopard is definitely a .0 release. I haven't encountered any instability or anything in more than a week of heavy use, but I have encountered "weird" behavior more than once. Eg: after 8 days of continuous running (since the upgrade), I had to reboot the machine because an FTP share wouldn't eject.

I was actually thinking this the other day. I think Leopard is the best OS I've used since BeOS. It feels to me like an amazing fusion of BeOS and BSD, and I love it.
