Apple has released Mac OS X 10.3.7, the latest version of its Panther operating system.

The 26MB upgrade to version 10.3.6 is available now via the OS' Software Update control panel and from Apple's support web site. A separate installer, designed to take any previous Panther release up to the new version is also available here. This one weighs in at 97MB.

Version 10.3.7 is a relatively small-scale tweak, focusing on resolving a number of issues that emerged with the release of 10.3.6 last month and various security updates that Apple has rolled out recently. Those protective patches are also included in each of the installers listed above.

Another area of update activity centres on Apple's Nvidia and ATI OpenGL graphics drivers, which have been tweaked to improve compatibility with a number of recent graphics and games releases, most notably World of Warcraft.

Apple also said it had improved the OS' compatibility with external Firewire audio and storage devices.

The upgrade is also available for Mac OS X Server, as both a update from 10.3.6 and as a full installer for any version of the OS from 10.3 upwards.

Apple also updated its calendar application, iCal, this week, to version 1.5.5. Again, it is available via Software Update or as a download here. ®
