More than three months after it last updated Mac OS X, Apple released 10.5.3, an upgrade for its Leopard operating system that boasts nearly 70 stability, compatibility and security improvements and fixes.

Apple did not include patches for several iCal vulnerabilities in the update, however.

Mac OS X 10.5.3, the third upgrade to Leopard since Apple launched it back in October 2007, addresses issues in several components and bundled applications, ranging from the Address Book and Automator to Time Machine and VoiceOver.

Apple also listed a baker's dozen under a "General" category that included a fix for hard drives that wouldn't show in the Finder; an improvement in Spotlight, the OS's built-in search tool, for searches done on AFP volumes; and a patch for stuttering audio and video playback from certain USB-based hardware.

AirPort, Apple's label for its wireless technology, got a pair of fixes: one to improve wireless reliability in general, the other to boost reliability when used with the company's relatively new Time Capsule router-cum-backup-device that debuted earlier this year.
