Mac Rumour Roundup The release of Apple's next upgrade to the classic Mac OS is imminent, insiders cited by both Think Secret and MacOS Rumors have claimed.

Mac OS 9.2, codenamed Moonlight, is at the final release candidate stage, the latest build being the fourth to be marked as such. Another build should see the code reach Golden Master status, at which point Apple will release it to the public.

Moonlight is believed to be primarily aimed at owners of the latest iMac, iBook and PowerBook Macs. It also incorporates various bug fixes and improves Mac OS X's Classic environment - such as cut-and-paste between Classic and MacOS X apps - so it will be of benefit to owners of other machines.

The update takes CarbonLib to version 1.3, say reports on both sites, but given the problems that release seems to be causing, having been released separately, Moonlight may contain a more up-to-date version.

Mac OS 9.2's final release is expected to include updated drivers for Apple-shipped graphics cards and new drivers for third-party CD-RW units, the sites reiterate.

If the source are correct, Mac OS 9.2 could be released early to mid June. ®
