Mac OS X 10.0.3 Released


Just days after the release of Mac OS X 10.0.2 (see "TenBITS/07-May-01" in TidBITS 579), Apple is offering an update to version 10.0.3. Apple says the Mac OS X 10.0.3 update fixes a problem in the Mac OS X Finder in which folders containing unusually large numbers of items don’t display all their contents. Installing Mac OS X 10.0.3 on a Mac running 10.0.1 also provides all of 10.0.2’s fixes, such as CD burning, better stability, and a newer FTP server. You can use the Software Update control panel in System Preferences to download the update (automatic checks aren’t working for a number of people; if this is true for you, just click the Software Update control panel’s Update Now button). If a firewall or other situation prevents you from using Software Update, you can also download and manually install a 14.9 MB updater disk image. The manual approach requires that you already have 10.0.1 or later installed; if that’s not true, you’ll need to install the Mac OS X 10.0.1 updater first.
