Apple has released the latest version of the classic Mac OS, 9.2.1, though as yet the company hasn't said in detail what the upgrade will do.

As per all classic Mac OS updates of late, 9.2.1 "improves Classic application compatibility in Mac OS X". It also provides "additional hardware support for Macs capable of running Mac OS X", which is pretty much all Apple is saying about the release for the moment.

Such a simple description of the update's additions would imply a pretty small download, yes? No. Mac OS 9.2.1 weighs in at between 82MB and 103.5MB, depending on which language you're after. Given it's focus on improving Mac OS X users' Classic compatibilty 9.2.1 update.

Mac users with broadband connections - or those who just can't wait - can get the update here.

The upgrade requires Mac OS 9.1 and a machine capable of running Mac OS X, which is pretty much all G3- and G4-class Macs. New machines are already shipping with 9.2.1, we hear. ®
