New Apple System Software Components

Send Article to a Friend

New Apple System Software Components -- In addition to the release of the System 7.5 Update 1.0 last week (see article below), Apple also released QuickDraw GX 1.1.1, LaserWriter 8.2.2, new PowerTalk gateways, and an international version of the network software installer that's potentially useful to a variety of Mac owners. Unfortunately, it seems these updates are only available on the same sites as System 7.5 Update 1.0, which means getting your hands on them can be difficult. Just for kicks, I wrote a script that repeatedly attempted to connect to Apple's update sites using a variety of methods during the wee hours of the morning. It ran for more than six hours without a single successful connection. So, we'll bring you more on these updates as soon as we can. [GD]
