Magic Mouse update adds OS X Leopard support

Apple have released Magic Mouse drivers for Mac OS X 10.5.8, which will allow those still running OS X Leopard to use the multitouch functionality of the new peripheral.  The update is accompanied by the 10.6.1 Snow Leopard driver; however, the imminent OS X 10.6.2 release is expected to add native support for Magic Mouse to the Mac platform, which would mean that users could simply pair their mouse and begin using its multitouch capabilities.

The Magic Mouse uses a trackpad-style touch sensor across most of its upper surface to respond to one- and two-finger touch and gestures; that way, it can be used to quickly switch between pages, scroll more speedily and navigate between apps.  For more details, and our opinion on the Magic Mouse, check out our review here.  The Magic Mouse is included with all new iMac systems, or is available separately for $69.
