OSX 10.1.5 beta leaked to the MacWeb

The latest update for OSX (10.1.5) was leaked today and distibuted wildly on the mac web. Although Apple pulled the initial download site from its itools homepages, numerous mirror sites were soon found. On close inspection the update does not seem to add any speed increases, but rather stability and hardware updates and support. The installer lists these changes upon installation of the patch.


Mac OS X Update 10.1.5 delivers enhancements which improve the reliability of Mac OS X applications, delivers improved networking, security, and expanded peripheral device support. Specific improvements include:

Peripheral Device Support:
-Expanded support for new Canon digital cameras
-Improved support for Nikon FireWire cameras
-Expanded support for SmartDisk, EZQuest, and LaCie disc recording devices
-Improved support for MO drives


Application Improvements:
-Increased stability of Mail and Sherlock
-Emails are properly retained when rebuilding the Draft mailbox
-Updated Carbon applications can use Quartz anti-aliasing technology for
high quality text display

Networking and Security Improvements:
-Improves networking via AFP when accessing multi-level directories on
Windows NT file servers
-Significant improvement to file searching on local and remote volumes
-Mail accounts go off-line to indicate that SSL encryption settings are not
supported by the mail server

WebDAV Improvements:
-More efficient iDisk mounting and file navigation
-Added support for connecting to iDisk using default DNS settings of AirPort
-Support for mounting a WebDAV volume from a non-standard http port

Asian Language Improvements:
-Significant updates to the Korean Input Method, especially important when
using AppleWorks
-Internet Connect and Airport applications updated with Chinese and Korean
localized content


Send us some email if you find anything strange about this update. It should me noted that there is no way to verify that this is a new update. This very well could be a hoax and users should proceed with caution.
