Panther 10.3.9 is out the door. Tiger, here we come...

Well, 10.3.9 is out as promised. I upgraded and encountered no real issues other than one. Safari 1.3 apparenly is not very compatible with browser add-ins like AcidSearch. Sure enough, I had it already installed and after doing the upgrade, Safari wouldn't launch. Actually, it crashed immediately after launch. I figured I would rule out any prefs problems and add-ins, and sure enough, removing AcidSearch did the trick. I also did some searching around on Macintouch and MacNN and found a supporting post from Jason Overby on Macintouch.
"After installing the 10.3.9 update, Safari crashed repeatedly. Only after some poking around, I found that AcidSearch was the culprit. This normally resides in the SIMBL folder created in ~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL. I also have Safari Source installed there but there appear to no problems with that. So, if others are having trouble with Safari crashes, check to see what, if any, third party add-ons you have."

I recommend that you check out the Apple Tech article on 10.3.9 before installing About the Mac OS X 10.3.9 Update (Delta).

Also, we got updates for iMovie, iDVD, iPhoto and the iSight cam. I am especially fond of the iPhoto update, as that baby launches like ten times faster now! Thanks Apple. Can't wait to get my greasy little mitts on Tiger. Just 12 more days...
