The update is now available in Software Update, and weighs in at 27.7 MB.

[Update] The 10.3.8 Update took 10 minutes to install on a 1.42GHz Mini with 256MB RAM. We have a DSL line that averages 1.2Mbps. The Update does require a system restart. No problems with Mini after update. We did notice a slight performance increase with Mail. [/Update]

Wonder if that video update addresses the lines that some folks are having on LCD's on their minis?

Improves DVD Player compatibility when playing a movie (using certain ATI Radeon cards) to an external widescreen TV with a 16:9 aspect ratio


EDIT: Word is that this update didn't fix anything.

I worry more and more about Tiger everyday. 32MB what was I thinking! Rolling Eyes JK!

Update went smooth Mail seems faster.

The way I look at it... Panther should be as fast as it was on my PB 1.5, and supposedly Tiger is supposed to be faster. I'm not worried about these frilly effects that everyone is bitching about not working. When the price of the G5's comes down, I'll buy, but for now, I'll make due...

STILL waiting for my mini to ship....
