Hurray For New Drivers and battery performance upgrades. It is suggested you recalibrate your battery after installing the battery upgrade to be on the safe side. Those who found their times to decrease had them increase a good half hour after calibration (minimum, seen several reports of one hour also).
To recablibrate the battery run it down to where the computer goes to sleep automatically and then charge it right back up. (Use the computer as you would do so normally, so the time shown in the battery bar is as accurate as possible, since its only a pretty good estimate.)
Run it down (by unplugging the AC adaptor) until you've 5 min or so left then reconnect the AC adaptor and fully recharge. My batteries seem fine after the Battery Update 1.1.
I've noticed one odd behaviour in 10.3.2 in that the new version of Mail (1.3.2 v610/609) seems to register mail filtered as Junk as being new in the little red sticker on the Dock Mail icon. Apparently, the new ATI drivers work much better with Halo too.
Hmmm, users on MacRumor's are reporting an increase in how long it takes their Macs to boot after the 10.3.2 update and slightly more sluggish. Now I'm not sure I want to run Software Update... (although chances are I will regardless )
Lars - People are also reporting their computers are running more snappy. I know the iBook I updated was slower to start up at first, but got snappier. eg. iTunes normally took 2 to 3 bounces is down to 1 or 2.
I've installed 3-5 of this weeks updates on three machines (desktop and laptop which is why not all updates on all machines) and run Repair Permissions on each after the installs. None had any permissions to repair. Methinks Apple has instigated some sort of fix for permission errors (which is good - since when is such esoterica "Mac-like"?).
Actually when I ran the permissions repair before & after the upgrade, there were no corrections reported. It's just a habit of mine, running Disk Utility like that when there's an upgrade released. I started doing it after seeing the practise recommended by Helpers on the Apple Discussion Boards a while back.
Since upgrading to Panther in November, my weekly-run Repairs have reported few, if any corrections - less than I've ever seen before. Interesting. Maybe Panther isn't as prone to permissions problems as Jaguar & earlier versions of OS X?
I noticed the same, Doug. I installed the 10.3.2 update along with Java 3D, iTunes 4.2, Quicktime 6.5 and when I ran repair permissions, it only corrected two items and those two items seem to always be there.
