Apple Computer has issued an update for its Mac OS X operating system. The update addresses issues related to reliability for built-in applications and services.
The Mac OS X update features improved functionality and reliability for Address Book, Classic compatibility, Finder, FireWire, graphics, OpenGL and Sherlock.
There are also improvements to AFP and Windows file service improvements have been made, along with audio, disc recording, graphics and printing improvements.
Apple has approximately 5,000 native Mac OS X applications available for the reported five million Mac OS X users who have switched to the operating system. Apple chief executive officer Steve Jobs said during last month's Macworld keynote that the company is hoping for nine to 10 million users by the end of the year.
Several applications have been recently released specifically for Mac OS X, including iLife, Keynote, Final Cut Express and the company's newest Web browser, Safari.
