Apple Seeds Another Mac OS X 10.5.3 (9D11)

Hot on the heels of the 9D10 seed, Apple appears to be working aggressively on the next version of Mac OS X with a new developer release (9D11) only days after the first.

Apple has detailed 19 more fixes in the latest seed and has asked developers to focus testing on a broad range of features including AirPort, Dashboard, Back To My Mac, Automator, iCal, Printing, Time Machine and many others.

The rapid development release is curious at this early stage of seeding. Typically, Apple starts frequent seeding to developers when preparing for final release. As of build 9D11, there are no known issues -- suggesting Apple may be targeting a quick release. Apple last updated Mac OS X to version 10.5.2 in February.
