Fear not, Leopard users, Apple is still watching out for you. QuickTime 7.7 for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard closes quite a number of security holes. As is common, we have no sense of how worrying these vulnerabilities really are, but it’s probably worth updating if you use QuickTime in Leopard. And if you’re running Snow Leopard or Lion, move along, there’s nothing to see here. (Free, 68.85 MB)
Avoid Naming Pear Note Files
If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:
- Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
- Select a default save location.
- Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
- Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
- If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.

I downloaded from the link you provided. When trying to install, when I got to "Destination" a got a 'block' saying that I need to use the software update.
Okay, so I launched QT 7.6.6 hit the software update and it said I was up-to-date.
Okay, so I App Zapped it. Tried the QT 7.7 installer still at square one.
I keep playing around, but if anyone has any suggestions...mucho appreciato :)
using Mac OS X 10.6.8
http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/ still downloads the old 7.6.9 dmg. File size matches my existing 7.6.9 file, so it's not just a graphics glitch.
Hopefully, Apple's on top of this.
Matt described it the best: "Apple, whose attitude towards backwards compatibility ranges from somewhat cavalier to downright heartless."
