Apple today announced its second software update for Mac OS X, adding the capability
to burn custom music CDs using its most recent Macintosh operating
system. At the same time, the company released a free update to iTunes for Mac OS X that enables
the feature. The new iTunes also enables the full-screen graphics
display feature that previously only worked in Mac OS 9.
Apple says Mac OS X 10.0.2 also features improvements in overall
application stability and a newer version of the ftpd FTP file transfer
server software – Apple’s not saying, but it’s possible this new FTP
daemon addresses security issues covered in a recent CERT
advisory (see "TenBITS/23-Apr-01"
577 for more information). The Mac OS X 10.0.2 update is available
for free; the built-in Software Update feature of Mac OS X will
automatically notify users of the update’s availability, and offer to
download and install it. As always, it’s a good idea to back up your
data before upgrading your system software.
