AppleInsider reports that Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard will be seeded to developers this week.
Citing people familiar with the release, Apple Developer Connection members and other high-profile software makers could receive the first test builds of the software prior to the start of the weekend, though the first seedings will almost certainly arrive by the middle of next week.
AppleInsider speculates that OS X 10.5.5 will include support for updated MacBooks and MacBook Pros, which are expected before the end of the quarter if not sooner.
Although there's no additional information yet about what we'll find inside (when it ships), ITWire says that Apple's to-do list likely includes the 10 vulnerabilities enumerated by Zero Day Initiative, the oldest of which goes back to December of last year.
[u] According to AppleInsider, the first seed (9F5) of OS X 10.5.5 has been made available to developers, but with the following warning:
Do not install on the following machines: MacBook Air, MacBook, Mac Mini, iMac (with Intel integrated graphics)
Apple doesn't specify the underlying problem or when it will be fixed. [u]
Editor's note: Aside from a sometimes sticky trackpad cursor, I don't have any complaints about OS X 10.5.4.
