AppleInsider says the 10.5.1 release will correct several bugs that were reported in the early days of Leopard's life on the planet, including problems with Leopard's firewall , Time Machine, and the Finder flaw related to moving files between different volumes. It's expected in a couple of weeks, which would be roughly the same amount of time that elapsed between the initial launch of Tiger and the first update released for that operating system.

If you were one of the Leopard early adopters, you'll be able to download the update when it arrives. We'll let you know when it's ready.
