The Missing Seed: Mac OS X 10.5 GM

Steven Frank: “The third-party software that you’re paying for, depending on, and hoping to run on Leopard, we cannot test on the final release build until we can run down to the Apple Store and pick it up, hopefully at least a few minutes before you do.”

We want to ship as many 10.5 updates as we can before Leopard itself ships. However, we can’t be sure that our 10.5 updates are truly complete, because we won’t have Leopard until the same day as our customers. Although I don’t expect any major changes between the last seeded version of OS X 10.5 and the GM version that ships on Friday, the uncertaintly about it isn’t fun.
