Apple lists bugs in Mac OS X 10.3.3 build 7F32Late Wednesday evening, Apple seeded its developers with a second pre-release of Mac OS X 10.3.3, which carries build number 7F32.
According to sources, Apple lists several areas of change in the Mac OS X 10.3.3 operating system, which include: Carbon, Cocoa, Core OS, Graphics and Imaging, High Level ToolBox, Printing, and USB. The company also has asked developers to focus their attention to Audio and Sound, USB, FireWire, and graphics that include OpenGL games.
While this most recent build lists only a single known issue pertaining to Java 1.4.2 installs, the seed notes accompanying the build reportedly list over two dozen developer bugs, broken down into component areas of the system update. Some of the effected component areas are Automounter, CoreFoundation, Disk Utility, High Level Toolbox (Carbon), Image Capture, Mail, Networking, NFS, NSL, Printing, Web Services Core and URL Access.
Apple previously seeded build 7F24 of Mac OS X 10.3.3 during the final week of January, but subsequently removed the build days later due to a critical issue that effected the company's 20-inch iMac computer. The latest build weighs in at just shy of 70MB, shedding about 5MB of size since the previous seeding.
In addition to the latest Mac OS X build, Apple has posted a developer document discussing bug fixes in the HIToolbox and NavigationServices frameworks for Mac OS X 10.3.3. Effective areas include Help Manager, Control Manger, Menu Manager, MLTE, Window Manager, and NavigationServices Framework.
Mac OS X 10.3.3 is rumored to include support for a number of new product offerings that the company is expected to debut between March and April, sources said.
