Mac OS X 10.2.6 Fixes USB-related Kernel Panics


As has been discussed in TidBITS Talk, Mac OS X 10.2.5 had some troubles with certain USB hubs, with kernel panics being increasingly common. Today may bring relief from those crashes for many with Apple releasing Mac OS X 10.2.6. Foremost among the changes is a fix for the USB bug, along with better printing compatibility for PostScript OpenType fonts, fixes for certain Maya features and better compatibility for MacSoft Unreal Tournament 2003, a problem related to Asian language scripts not appearing when English was the default language, and support for the Sony Ericsson T610 phone in Address Book. It’s a 6.1 MB download via Software Update.
