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.

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?

As of today, I am not aware of any version beyond 6.0.3 for Mac OS X.
