Just a note for all the Macbook folks. There is a new update out for Leopard which carries some improvements for the Mac. This may also effect those who sync the iPhone with the Mac. Just FYI! A great improvement for the Macworld. Hopefully we will see another iPhone update soon..

So has anyone noticed any major changes with the 10.5.2 update?

Also, what was the graphics update for? Apple wasn't exactly forthcoming on the details for it.

I have noticed on the display settings there are a couple more options for your LCD configurations that weren't there previously.

I have the update installed on my PC, but I haven't had much time to play around with it. I know that stacks is enhanced, though.

I haven't had my MB long enough (under 2 weeks) to know whether there are any improvements or not.

Quite a few things I've noticed (I've been using Leopard since October):

Stacks now have Folder and List view option as well as new background.
You can disable the menubar's transparency. (I like it.)
Several bugs I was having are gone.
Menu bar icon for Time Machine. (Very helpful)
Adds an application to the Utilities folder that lets you install Mac OS X on your MacBook Air.

It's not a new OS version, but it's very helpful.

I'm updating my MacBook Pro right now. Looking forward to the improvements in Stacks...among other things. If all goes well, I'll update my girl's MacBook tonight.

My World of Warcraft framerate increased significantly. I'm hovering around 60 frames per second, which looks great compared to my previous 40 fps.

Safari seems to be a tad more reliable for me, it was choking up quite frequently on sites with a lot of flash banners like Tuaw and Kotaku. My Safari would just quit, now I get the rainbow spinner for a second and then everything goes back to normal once the page is parsed.

As an owner of a previously "freezy" iMac 24" Aluminum model, I am extremely pleased with these updates. I thought my Maccy was perfect a day ago, now its even "perfecter" after the patch.

If anyone else like me was having issues with wireless after the 10.5.2 update and is using a draft-n wireless router, drop your router back to wireless-G 54mbps and it seems to cut out the issue of your wireless connection dropping. hopefully the next update will fix this. Sucks to have a wireless N router and not be able to take advantage of it.
