Apple Releases OS X 10.2.5
7:56 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Late Thursday afternoon, Apple Computer, Inc. released their latest update to the OS X operating system, upgrading the Unix-based system software to version 10.2.5.

The upgrade, which can be installed either through OS X's Software Update control panel, downloaded straight from the Apple Support website, or ordered on CD directly from Apple, provides additional reliability to many of OS X's technologies, including AirPort and Bluetooth technologies, FireWire support for a long list of external Firewire devices, and improved networking support in cross-platform environments.

Along with improved support for a greater number of third-party hardware, perhaps the greatest news for Mac gamers is the updating and optimization of OS X's OpenGL implementation. Although information regarding the enhancements of the graphics software is scarce, unofficial reports from users who have installed the update report a dramatic improvement in frame rates on certain graphics cards. Also of note, there have been no reports yet of the system update "breaking" any existing game software, as was the case with some previous system software updates.

Stay tuned to IMG as additional information regarding this latest upgrade gets uncovered. In the meantime, head over to the IMG forums and take part in the growing thread regarding the 10.2.5 upgrade.
