What works

So far I haven't found anything that didn't work. Wasn't able to test SuperSearch as I am not a user of their newsserver. Downloading, stopping, pausing, auto-start NZB dropped in drop-directory.

What does not

Not yet encountered.


What was not tested

Supersearch. No account for that.

Additional Comments

It loads slowly and graphics are updated slowly if you don't alter the Leopard's X11. You can download patches to Apple's X11 from The new X11 in Leopard is based on Xorg, not Xfree86. That's why there's a lot of bug still. Even after applying the patches. It remains buggy, but at least there are less bugs and it is (though still slow) a lot faster than before the patches.
