Apple Mac OS X Leopard update to fix almost 100 bugs

Apple rumour sites claim Apple will fix nearly 100 bugs with the upcoming Mac OS X "Leopard" 10.5.2 update that will be released in February.
Among them are twenty new fixes that turned up as part of Mac OS X 10.5.2 build 9C16, which was released privately to developers during last week's Macworld Expo. Some of the more prominent fixes in that build target problems with resuming Time Machine backups and previewing PDF, image and mail attachments.

Since seeding the first pre-release copies of the Leopard update in mid-December, Apple has asked that its developer community test the release quite broadly. The latest build arrived without exception, maintaining a list of thirty seven core focus areas that swapped out an emphasis on 802.11 wireless testing for that of Active Directory.

Mac OS X 10.5.2, which in its current incarnation includes just two known issues, will also deliver support for Apple's just-announced Time Capsule backup appliance and include a revised version of the company's "Stacks" desktop feature.
The site says the bare bone version of the update will weigh in about 450MB.
