OS X 10.5.7 Due for Release on Friday?

Mac|Life claims that OS X 10.5.7, the next update to Leopard, will be released on Friday.

If you've been champing at the bit for the magic of 10.5.7, according to a super-secret Apple source, your champing can cease on Friday. The newest version of Leopard is slated to fix a slew of networking, syncing and bluetooth issues.

Mac|Life also reports that there is speculation that this will be the final update to Leopard before the launch of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, which appears to be slated for a release later this year.

Development on Mac OS X 10.5.7 has appeared to be winding down for quite some time now as Apple has made very few changes in each incremental build released to developers for testing purposes. The most recent seed was released to developers in the middle of last week.
