New seeds...

Apple has seeded Mac OS X 10.3.3 7F24 (75.5 MB, so it's quite a biggie...). Also, Safari 1.2 has been seeded to developers.

Seed note contains the following info:

The following is information on Mac OS X Update 10.3.3 build 7F24. Mac OS X update 10.3.3 is an update to Mac OS X v10.3. Please test against these major areas of changes in this update: Graphics, OpenGL games, USB devices, printing, browsing networks, Cocoa applications.

Known Issues:
- On some machines with BlueTooth support, menu bar items may not appear (e.g. clock, airport status, bluetooth status, etc.)
- On some machines with BlueTooth support, peripherals may fail to mount. If this happens, try removing the BlueTooth status icon in the menu bar (hold down Command key, click and drag off menu bar.)
- Power Mac G4 500 MHz Dual Processor machines may fail to wake up from sleep
- Slower bootup time may occur
- Installer read me currently only has placeholder text
- Some relocated applications may not get up
- Timezone may be reset to Pacific Time Zone

Our take: These issues will most probably be solved in a newer build, which is expected to be seeded next week. As Mac OS X 10.3.2 is quite stable, Apple is in no rush bringing out 10.3.3 - unless this build has support for new hardware, which is expected in February.

AirPort update message:

Apparently, a simple reset of the base station solves the aforementioned problem. Thanks to the ones who were writing in!
