Apple released Mac OS X 10.5.2 nearly two weeks ago, and it’s not your typical point-upgrade to the Mac OS. There are plenty of new features and refinements in this update, so in this Macworld Video, I’ll highlight some of the more interesting ones.

Specifically, I’ll look at changes to the interface of Leopard’s Time Machine back-up feature, OS X 10.5.2’s ability to remove the translucent menu bar and its reduced menu translucency, and the changes made to the Stacks feature.

Apple has provided a list of the changes introduced in OS X 10.5.2. My colleague Dan Frakes wrote a blog entry on how this release shows that Apple listens to its users—a point of view I also share.

Our review of Leopard last October serves as an excellent reminder of all the changes introduced in the initial 10.5 release. And be sure to visit our Leopard topic center for all the latest OS X tips, tricks, and news.
