Mac OS X 10.3 Panter is upon us. There are upsides and downsides to any software update. Don’t get caught with incompatible software after you upgrade.
Though panthers aren’t much of a threat in New Zealand, the folks at SubRosasoft are ready. Their main software lines have all been updated for OS 10.3, making them the first disk utility to declare compatibility that I am aware of.
The makers of “haxies” have updated several of their popular OS tweaks for Panther, including SafariNoTimeout, Menu Extra Enabler and their Application Enhancer. These are must-downloads for anyone updating.
For the rest of you that can’t leave well enough alone, the hidden option enabler TinkerTool has been declared compatible with 10.3.
Keeping in the spirit of making Panther your own, CoolBackground is an OS 10.3 compatible application that turns your desktop background into a screensaver. Now you can show off that G5 and Quartz Extreme like never before.
Best of luck to those of you upgrading. Let’s hope Panther is a temperamental cat.
