Apple has released Mac OS X 10.5.3, fixing a wide variety of problems and addressing numerous security vulnerabilities. Figuring out exactly what has changed is nearly impossible, but Adam looks at what Apple claims (along with a report of a troubling Photoshop problem under 10.5.3), and Glenn focuses in on a notable improvement to Back to My Mac. Moving from news to rumor, we announce the release of the second edition of “Take Control of .Mac,” after which author Joe Kissell contemplates the rumors that Apple will be renaming the online service shortly. Adam also shares a useful tip for seeing dictionary definitions for words in documents as you point at them, and looks in detail at the TomTom Go 720 car navigation GPS. In the TidBITS Watchlist this week, we cover the releases of Delicious Library 2.0, Logic Express Update 8.0.2, the Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 2.1, and Keyboard Maestro 3.1.
