So, in my typical A.D.D. state of mind yesterday I totally neglected to tell my fellow ADC’ers out there… 10.5.2 has been reseeded as of 3/26/2008. Go check it out… (Select / Premier membership required, but you already knew that)

Hey, it could happen… (heheh)
Was about this time last year I installed Rails, Ruby, Gem and an updated MySQL on my development laptop (which was running 10.4). Since then I wiped it and installed Leopard. As infrequently as I do any development work… this hasn’t really been an issue until now.
So, I go back to square one and do my
And, to my very pleasant surprise… With the stock Leopard install I have 0.9.2 gem installed, Rails 1.2.3 and gcc is at 4.0.1. I’m tickled not to have to go through all that again.
Apple released 10.5.2 (client and server) into the wild today and immediately issued a graphics update to it. So, if you download 10.5.2 be sure to run Software Update once again after your restart to pick up this other updater as well.
The combo updater weighs in at 340 Mb.
Developers fire up your engines. 9C16 of both Leopard server and workstation are now seeded on the ADC.
It’s going to happen: iChat for Windows will be announced at Macworld Expo next week.
There’s just too much going on in that one app to remain bottled up for OSX alone. You wait and see. Next week. iChat for Windows. Oh, and one more thing (more…)
For those out there with ADC accounts… 10.5.2 is now posted for evaluation.
It’s tagged Seed# 9C7. Read the Seed note as there is some importanté stuff in there about the combo installer.
Be careful out there.
MBPro has been running Leopard for many moons as my main development machine. It was bought stock with 10.4.x and promptly wiped in favor of 9a### revs of Leopard until launch.
Not so with the PowerBook. It still has 10.4.11 and I’m contemplating the move to Leopard this week. I’ve heard some people had problems “upgrading”. Wonder what the groupthink is on this one…
Upgrade over Tiger? -or-
Fresh install and migrate stuff over?
Graydon Stoner had the fine idea to whip up a script to automatically accept screen-share requests via iChat (Leopard version only). Why would one wish to do this? Hmm?
Apple Remote Desktop, as much as I like it, has too much screen lag for my liking. Most of the time all I’m wanting to do is take remote control of the screen on the far end. For this, iChat is FAR more responsive and lithe at the task… to the point it all but dissolves the arguments MS remote control is vastly superior in the responsive dept. I don’t know how much more responsive Apple could make this.
Problem is, until Graydon’s script popped up on the interweb… there had to be two consenting peeps involved. No longer. Now, with this script installed and waiting for the proper Apple Event… I can now substitute ARD in favor of iChat if I really wanted (or needed) to.
Graydon, thanks for a cool solution. Hope you get lots of link love for your hard work.
