Send Article to a Friend

Mac OS X 10.1.5 Released -- Apple has released Mac OS X 10.1.5, bringing incremental improvements to applications, networking, and third party peripherals. Adding more spokes to the digital hub concept, Mac OS X 10.1.5 adds support for new Canon digital cameras, Nikon FireWire cameras, and external disc recorders from SmartDisk, EZQuest, and LaCie, as well as magneto-optical (MO) drives. Mail and Sherlock have received stability tweaks, and Quartz anti-aliasing of text is now offered for applications that support it (such as the recently released Microsoft Office X Service Release 1). In terms of networking, iDisk access has been improved, as has file searching on local and remote volumes, and navigating Windows NT file servers via AFP (Apple Filing Protocol). Mac OS X 10.1.5 is available through Software Update, or as a stand-alone 21.4 MB download for users of Mac OS X 10.1.3 or 10.1.4; a separate 45.1 MB Mac OS X Update Combo 10.1.5 should be used to update versions 10.1 through 10.1.2.
