If you’re still using the Leopard version of Mac OS X and Apple’s free Snow Leopard DVD offer didn’t tempted you to upgrade, it’s time to fire up the Software Update tool to get a security fix. Apple has released two pieces of software for users on 10.5.8 that are designed to combat the Flashback trojan that managed to infect a surprisingly large percentage of Macs before Apple patched it for more recent versions of OS X. The first is the “Flashback Removal Security Update” which will check your system for the trojan and remove it if found. It also disables the Java plug-in for Safari entirely, though users can re-enable it if they so choose. The second is the more straightforward “Leopard Security Update 2012-003″ which disables older,…
If you’re not already running on the developer build of iOS 5 (whether you’re an actual developer, or a cough-cough-yeah-for-sure-I’m-totally-a-”developer”-shut-up-and-give-me-iOS-5), tomorrow’s the big day. After roughly 4 months of Beta builds, iOS 5 is finally launching to everybody.
Before you can dive in, though, you’ll need iTunes 10.5 — anything less just won’t do the trick. Look to ensure that their servers don’t eat it too hard with tomorrow’s launch, Apple has opted to make the iTunes bit of the equation available this morning.
It’s been a while since 10.5 began rolling out in Beta capacity, so here’s a quick recap of the big new features:
- iTunes Match: For $ 25 a year, iTunes Match will give you legal digital access to any songs you own (be it through legal means or not). Match won’t actually launch until late October, but support is built into 10.5.
- Patches a number of Windows-specific security issues
- WiFi syncing support (when paired with iOS 5)
- Purchase history (for books, apps, etc) through iCloud
If you’ve got a beta build of iTunes 10.5 already up and running, you’ll need to delete and reinstall to move to the final release. Otherwise, you can update iTunes through the usual means, or by downloading it manually here.

Windows: As expected, Opera made version 10.5 of its browser official this morning, calling it “the fastest browser on Earth” and also touting its Windows 7 integration, HTML5 video support, better private browsing, and more.
In terms of HTML5 and video, Opera has gone the way of Firefox, supporting native, Flash-free streams of the Ogg Theora format, but not H.264. Apple’s Safari supports only H.264, and Google Chrome supports both. Opera has also added in extensive Windows 7 graphical look and taskbar support, as we’ve detailed, and also added the seemingly requisite “private browsing” option.
And in “cold” (right off a reboot) and “warm” (having previously opened) start-ups:
Opera’s certainly managed to get everyone’s attention with their new Carakan engine, that’s for sure. In our own tests, Opera 10.5 feels very snappy and lightweight when moving about the web, and that’s without the server-caching Turbo is turned on.
Opera 10.5 is a free download for Windows systems only; Mac and Linux users should expect their own versions to follow very soon.
