Although the unveiling of
the new iBook
was the highlight of a special Apple event held today at the company’s corporate headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., Apple CEO Steve Jobs kicked things off by announcing a much-anticipated update to Mac OS X. Apple is also simultaneously releasing an update to the OS X version of iTunes to allow it to burn CDs.
“I’m pleased to report that the update went golden master a few days ago and is going to be posted today at noon,” said Jobs.
In addition to CD burning, Mac OS X 10.0.2 also features improvements in overall application stability and the latest version of ftpd, the Internet file transfer service.
Apple released OS X 10.0.1 earlier in April to provide users with improved support for third-party USB devices, improved Classic compatibility, increased application stability and provided support for the popular open source Secure Shell service.
The 10.0.2 update will be made available by automatic software update to all Mac OS X users for free.
