AppleInsider writes that Apple has already begun seeding OS X 10.5.2 Leopard to developers.
10.5.2 is described as one of the most 'hefty' maintenance updates Apple has released in some years, already weighing in at 354MB for build 9C7.
The build deals with a raft of issues and apps, including the Dock, the Finder, grammar checking, iCal, iChat, Mail, Parental Controls, Quick Look, Rosetta, Safari, Time Machine, and Leopard's 802.11 AirPort implementation.
AI also notes that there are already some 76 bug fixes and code corrections to Leopard. Rosetta has also come in for some attention, due to memory leaks.
A release is expected early 2008, but could be timed to coincide with new hardware expected at MWSF.
Analysis: Is this just Apple's way of implicitly acknowledging there were some flaws with the original Leopard release? The stories that 10.5 was released to hit a product deadline, not a quality control benchmark, are beginning to make sense.
