These are some of the enhancements delivered with the Mac OS X 10.3.8 Update:

Addresses an issue with Mac OS X 10.3.7 in which iChat, Mail, or other network-based applications could take a long time to open.

Addresses an issue in which a computer wouldn't always restart automatically after a power failure, even when the Energy Saver preference option "Restart automatically after a power failure" was selected.

Improves the performance of Blizzard World of Warcraft's "Full Screen Glow" video feature.

Improves DVD Player compatibility when playing a movie (using certain ATI Radeon cards) to an external widescreen TV with a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Resolves an issue in which a "flicker" could be seen when navigating DVD menus in DVD Player on certain PowerBook G4 computers.

Addresses an issue in which a PowerBook G4 computer would, on rare occasion, wake from sleep with a black screen and not respond to any keyboard, mouse, or trackpad input.

Addresses "jumping cursor" issues that might occur when using your portable computer's trackpad with your thumb, side of thumb, or a "flat" finger.

Resolves an issue on certain Power Mac G5 computers where a fan cycles erratically at unexpected times, such as when [email protected] software is running.

Speeds up Address Book and Mail LDAP lookups that are performed by a Cisco DistributedDirector DNS server.

Addresses an issue that could prevent clients using the Active Directory plugin from binding to their Active Directory server.

I know you like to be first, but this is crazy--it's not even listed on their support page yet!

well it's up on my software update already.

I'm getting a new machine tomorrow and I need to transfer all of my files over...I hate when they release an upgrade right when I'm switching over!

I wish they had just moved to Tiger! Then I'd have a free copy of it coming to me with my new powerbook! GEEZ!! When are they going to release this thing!!

Excuse my ignorance... But I'd want to install this on a Mac Mini too right? I assume they're shipping with 10.3.7?

They are currently, but new orders placed for the Mac mini (and other Macs) will probably start shipping with 10.3.8 within 3 weeks or less from today's release.

And yes, if your Mac mini doesn't have it, download it!

thanks for the love, iLabmAn but if it wasn't me I'm sure there were 5 ehMac users lined up to post the news (I'm sure Lars was one of them)

Good luck with the installs, everybody.

About the update:

http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=300569

This software updates Mac OS X 10.3.7 to version 10.3.8. If you have version
10.3, 10.3.1, 10.3.2, 10.3.3, 10.3.4, 10.3.5, or 10.3.6, update your software
with the Combo Update instead.
