The code name for 10.2.7 was Smeagol. As PGant said, Jaguar fine tuned to work on the G5 (and most likely has a few enablers or something built in). 10.2.7 (the one on the G5s) won't run on any other computer however as far as I've heard.

The new (10.2.7) version of Jaguar has got some 64-bit code so that the memory manager can access all the memory you can stuff into that computer.

That's about it FAIK.

I'm a little puzzled by suggestions that 10.2.7 won't run on non-G5 machines. Since these are the same machines that will run Panther, and Panther's specs go back as far as G3s, then it seems like a reasonable deduction that the next upgrade for 10.2 will serve all platforms.

Then again, this is all idle speculation on a Friday afternoon.

To clarify what I said, it was that 10.2.7 was the only version of Jaguar that would have some special libraries and files for the G5 to run it. So in essense, 10.2.7 is 10.2.6 with G5 support.
