Apple fixes setup crash with AirPort Utility 5.5.3

Apple has released an update for its AirPort Utility, which addresses a potential crash situation for the program.

Apple has released an update to AirPort Utility, which is the tool used to configure AirPort Extreme base stations, AirPort Express units, and Time Capsule devices. The update addresses a problem where the previous version would quit unexpectedly during setup.

The update is a 10.8MB download that can be installed using Apple's Software Update utility, or via manual download from Apple's support Web site for both Mac OS and Windows clients.

As always, before installing this update or any software, be sure you have a backup of your system, but this should be a straightforward installation that has minimal potential to adversely affect your system. The update requires OS X 10.5.7 or later.
