I have upgraded my system last week from Leopard 1.5.4 to 1.5.5 and did not notice anything unusual since then (no crash nor freeze). For instance, the large Monte Carlo simulations I am running day and night for now several weeks have ran correctly since the Mac OS X upgrade. Nothing special to report either when dealing with symbolic computations. > i've also been getting a lot of spinning color wheels of death? i > really hope wolfram people are getting crash reports from apple. Some of the features as use the less are dynamic interactivity (say, Manipulate and the like). If I remember correctly, I had some crashes when reading the online help on functions such as Manipulate (page with a lot of examples), but that was before Mac OS X 1.5.5 anyway. Do you use this kind of features? > is 6.0.3 the most recent mac os x version? i couldn't find that > information on the wolfram website. As of today, I am not aware of any version beyond 6.0.3 for Mac OS X. Regards, -- Jean-Marc
