Apple today released some server side updates to the MobileMe platform as well as a 10.5.6 Mail.app fix.  The MobileMe Serverside updates include:

Contacts

  • Searching for contacts in a large address book (more than 1000 contacts) is faster and no longer results in a "slow script" browser alert message

  • Exported vCards with multi-line addresses or notes can now be imported into the Mac OS X Address Book

  • Adds keyboard shortcut to create a new contact

  • Additional formatting options for European phone numbers are now supported

Calendar

  • Adds sorting of To Do items by calendar or title

  • Long event titles now appear properly in Month view

Gallery

  • Updated "Tell a friend" email message

  • Resolves an issue related to setting a new album’s key photo

iDisk

  • Files and folder names that contain Japanese language characters now display properly on the web

Account

  • Hosting of iWeb pages can be configured for personal domains ending in ".eu", ".ax", ".tl", ".gw", ".kp", ".rs" or ".su"

  • Family Member accounts now display the accurate renewal/expiration date

  • Resolves an issue that prevented some members from using an activation key (MobileMe box) to renew a subscription

Login

  • "Keep me logged in for two weeks" checkbox now works reliably

On the Mail.app update, some users may experience issues with Mail after updating to 10.5.6.  If so, run Software Update and you should see the fix.  Otherwise, you can download it directly from Apple.
