    10.3.6 Panther Update Available
    Just noticed it in Software Update. Haven't upgraded yet, but I'll let everyone know if I experience any problems once I do.

    The 10.3.6 Update delivers enhanced functionality and improved reliability for Mac OS X v10.3 "Panther" and is recommended for all users.

    Key enhancements include:
    - improved file sharing for Mac (AFP), UNIX (NFS) and PC (SMB/CIFS) networks
    - more reliable network automounts and launch of network applications
    - improved OpenGL technology and updated ATI and NVIDIA graphic drivers
    - additional FireWire audio and USB device compatibility
    - updated Calculator, DVD Player, Image Capture, and Safari applications
    - improved compatibility for third party applications
    - previous standalone security updates

    I updated both my iBook and my Beige G3 AIO this evening, and so far no problems to report. I haven't really noticed any improvements to Safari, though it's now at version 1.2.4.

    Ah, this seems nice...I check Software Update every day (and right afterwards, I check MacUpdate), and I just noticed it. I'm downloading it right now, although I've already changed my Mac's Specs in my profile just in case I forget to do it later. But technically, even though they say 10.3.6, I have 10.3.5 as I'm typing this message.

    So, now we're up to 10.3.6. This really means that Tiger (10.4) is coming up! Because, I don't think ANYthing in computer history as ever receieved a version that extends to the fourth "decimal place". So, Apple can only release a maximum of three more updates before Tiger, but I don't even know if they'll get 10.3.9 before 10.4 is released. It's supposed to be released in early 2005, right? Well, 2004 is very close to being over, and seeing as how these updates get released every...two and a half months or so, 10.3.9 would normally get released at around mid-June! And of course, Tiger will be released before then. Even so, though, I think I remember somewhere someone saying that 10.3.5 (or was it 10.3.3?) would be the last version of Panther. Now it seems they were wrong.

    So, I wonder what updates 10.3.6 brings? I want details...Saying that it brings a new version of Safari wouldn't be enough. I would want to know what this new version of Safari brings too.

    And I hope this update doesn't somehow decrease my computer's speed....

    I updated, and now safari doesnt work, Ive repaired permissions several times, delete safaris
    prefs, and nothing. it starts opening, then quits and I get the error message saying safari has unexpectedly quit. previous to this update, I was running safari 1.3, could this have caused a problem? Ive now reinstalled 1.3 and it still isnt working, Im in omniweb now.

    I would suspect that running 1.3 is the problem. This update includes an update for Safari to 1.2.4, so running 1.3 is most likely causing a problem.

    Hi,
    Seems to be a few having problems with the 1.3 Safari Developer build not working after the 3.6 update.

    so if I delete safari 1.3 and manually update the os again, all should be fine?

    Just installed it. Ran repair permission (nothing to repair). No problems with Safari or Change Desktop.

    All good. Will let you know if any problems occur.
