10.4.8, 10.4.9, 10.5???

apple updateSince Tiger 10.4.0 was released, there have now officially been 9 updates to the OS. By my math the next update to the OS will be Leopard, aka 10.5.

Apple last night released 10.4.9 with a bunch of updates. This will probably be the final update to Tiger, so make sure to update to this patch if you aren’t planning on buying Leopard when it is launched.

Updates include:

  • RAW camera support
  • Handling of large or malformed images that could cause crashes
  • Image capture performance
  • Mouse scrolling and keyboard shortcuts
  • Font handling
  • Playback quality, and bookmarks in DVD Player
  • USB video conferencing cameras for use with iChat
  • Bluetooth devices
  • Browsing AFP servers
  • Apple USB Modem
  • Windows-created digital certificates
  • Open and Print dialogs in applications that use Rosetta on Intel-based Macs
  • Time zone and daylight saving for 2006 and 2007
  • Security updates

Be sure to check out all of the new features, and update via Software Update

  1. Sorry Nick but I’m not sure about that, we could see 10.4.10, as Leopard seems not to be ready. Anyways, for the record, Panther went also 10.3.9, but Jaguar only 10.2.8, so you might see 10.4.10, who knows ? 😉 Anwswer : only Steve.
