Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is still fresh in our minds, for good and ill. Adam examines the revelation that Apple's software license agreement for Leopard Server now allows virtualization, a change that could save significant resources for those running Xserves. In less encouraging news, Rich Mogull finds Leopard's new firewall wanting in multiple ways, and a Trojan horse called OSX.RSPlug.A is in the wild and targeting Mac OS X (but there's an easy way to avoid it). Even after shipping Leopard, Apple has been busy, releasing minor updates to the MacBook and MacBook Pro, pushing out new versions of iTunes and QuickTime, and preparing for this week's launch of the iPhone in the UK. Elsewhere, Glenn Fleishman relates the (possibly momentary) availability of AppSnapp for installing applications onto the iPhone; Mark Anbinder ponders what IMAP access for Gmail means for Mac and iPhone users; Adam uses GrandPerspective and WhatSize to identify large files on our server and explains why we've had some downtime; and we give away copies of SmileOnMyMac's TextExpander 2. Finally, the jig is up! Crazy Apple Rumors discovered the TidBITS secret agenda, and, yes, it involves killer beavers.
