Still no SSD TRIM

Still no implementation for SSD TRIM commands.. Shouldn't be too difficult. Windows 7 has had it from the start.

My 2006 iMac now shows the following though in system profiler for my Intel SSD (which supports TRIM):

TRIM Support: No

I can't remember seeing this before installing 10.6.4 so let's hope that's an indication of progress.

Edit: It also shows the following now:

Medium Type: Solid State

I am pretty sure this is new also. So it certainly appears there is some work being done for SSDs.

Just wanted to confirm that the "Medium Type" field is indeed new in 10.6.4, as per your suspicion. Traditions HDDs are listed as having a "Rotational" medium type.
