Apple has denied reports that it has delayed the release of Mac OS X 10.5 'Leopard'.

Jupiter Research analyst Michael Gartenberg claims Apple has said Leopard is still scheduled to ship this spring "as they previously announced."

The denial follows a DigiTimes report last week which claimed the release of the new OS to have been delayed while the company applies support for Windows Vista to Mac OS X's Boot Camp feature, currently available in beta.

DigiTimes cited local sources who claimed the release of the OS to have beeen delayed until October.
