Apple's System 7.5.4 update for the MacOS has been scrapped in favour of System 7.5.5, a rebuilt version which fixes a couple of glitches. The switch will delay the update until around September 20.
The original update got to gold master before small problems with remote controls on TV-equipped Macs and an installer which wiped desktop pattern and virtual memory settings on 5400 and 6400 models. The major features of the update--including crucial enhancements to virtual memory performance--are unchanged.
Meanwhile, the final version OpenTransport 1.1.1 will ship separately, as early as Monday. @IDG tests with later beta versions tend to bear out Apple's claims of much better TCP/IP performance.
