Apple Releases Mac OS X 10.2.1 and iTunes 3.0.1 -- Apple pushed a trio of small upgrades out the door last week through Software Update and as separate downloads. The most significant was Mac OS X 10.2.1, which peppers the operating system with numerous small enhancements. Examples include improved compatibility between iMovie and media converters; the capability for CDs burned on a Mac to be read under Windows; improvements in Mail to avoid messages being lost when the connection is broken; resolved printing issues; and a handful of iBook fixes. Mac OS X 10.2.1 is a 17.1 MB download. Also released, but without details about what's changed, was iTunes 3.0.1, which offers unspecified performance enhancements and Jaguar compatibility; the update is a 5 MB download. Finally, Apple posted Security Update 2002-09-20, which replaces the Terminal application for an undisclosed reason; the download is 680K. [JLC]
