Mac Updates: OS X Server 2.2.1, evasi0n 1.0.0, Pandora 2.0.7
What is the world coming to? Apple has released an OS X Server update that requires the user to be running OS X 10.8.2, but hasn’t managed to squeeze out the client Mac update — that’s putting 18-wheeler cart before the lipizzaner pony. Stranger still are the people rushing, lemming like, to jailbreak their iThings with the 1.0.0 release of a hacker utility.
Apple has released OS X Server 2.2.1 (Mac App Store), which comes to market with the following features, tweaks and fixes baked into its creamy filling:
• Caching Server to speed up download of software distributed by Apple through the Mac App Store
• Time Machine service monitoring of which computers have backed up, when they last backed up and size of backup
• Wiki Server support for MacBook Pro with Retina displays
• Fix for deleting apps uploaded to Profile Manager
• Ability to use Active Directory groups within Profile Manager
• Centralized Certificate management interface
• Fix for setup failures due to an SSL error
• Fixes for upgrading from Lion Server
To put this release into perspective… Apple has been stuffing developers with a steady stream of OS X 10.8.3 client betas over the course of months — think graphic driver issues — and then delivers the server version first.
It’s almost as if Apple’s making “developer foie gras” and those code monkey livers haven’t been fattened quite yet to perfection.

You know this is the real hacker iOS 6.x jailbreak deal because the evasi0n jailbreak substitutes a “zero” (0) for the letter “o” — you know that comes from someplace really deep, instant cred.
Mind you, no one here at the Fairer Platform is against jailbreaking and the freedom to deny jailbreaking isn’t about stealing software, but it might be better to wait until the 1.0.1 update, with the appropriate street savvy alpha-numeric substitutions, becomes available.
If you have an iThing, other than an Apple TV, running iOS 6.0 or later, as well as an Intel Mac running OS X 10.5 or later, plus a fatal need for speed, then have at it.
And, what’s new in Pandora 2.0.7? Apparently, Tim Westergren & Co. think anyone not enrolled in (i.e. paying for) their premium Pandora One service is unworthy of knowing — thanks, guys, you sure know how to make pay forever music look appealing.
