Apple's latest update to Mac OS X 10.4.10 (PPC, Intel, Server PPC, Server Universal) contains enhancements to Bluetooth, support for third-party applications, USB connectivity, and minor issues like responsiveness when using the Control-Eject key combination to display a shutdown dialog. The update is recommended for all PowerPC and Intel-based Mac computers currently running Mac OS X Tiger.

    Resolves an issue in which some DNG images may appear tinted or distorted.
  • Improves compatibility of Mathematica 6 with 64-bit Macs.

  • Improves reliability when using the IR remote control after waking from sleep.
  • Improves reliability when mounting external USB hard drives.
  • Resolves an issue in which a TomTom GO 910 may not be recognized when connected via USB to an Intel-based Mac.

  • Improves responsiveness when using the Control-Eject key combination to display a shutdown dialog.
  • Addresses a specific issue in which users importing video from a DV camera may experience dropped frames.
  • Includes recent Apple security updates.
  • Addresses issues with calendar calculations in certain applications.
  • Addresses issues when rounding decimal numbers for display in certain applications.

      The question is answered!

      No more guessing about what this update would be called. Tiger 10.4.10 it is then!

      I complained about the ctrl-eject response time, but never really expected them to address it... very cool.

      Unable to install update

      I have tried to install the update on my 17" Macbook pro but all I get is that there were errors and the update was not installed. No other information. I then tried via the package that was moved to the trash, same deal, a vague error message with no indication as to how to fault find the errors. I wonder wheteher others will see this problem as well.

      I wonder

      if this is it till Leopard? They still could pump out another update or so. If they did, what are they going to call it? 10.4.11? Matters not, as I'm very thankful for all I get, as I doubt I will be going forward to Leopard for quite some time.

      What to call it

      I'd bet they call it 10.4.11 the numbering convention doesn't just change on the fly. I'm sure they have versioning controlled in their Software Development Plans. How does that work for major developers, do they go with J-STD-016, or a 1498 IEEE standard for development? I'm sure someone here knows.

      Who cares

      Who cares what they call long as they keep the goodies coming.

      is it snappy?

      Haven't seen it in a while. Sorry.

      looks like a pretty minor list of changes, for most people, forcing them to do the security updates would be the main reason for updating.

      I guess they are saving all the snap for leopard.

      > is it snappy?

      Actually, on my Intel iMac at work, it seems really very sluggish. Opening apps seems slower and much less responsive than under 10.4.9.

      Oh, didn't know that one

      "Improves responsiveness when using the Control-Eject key combination to display a shutdown dialog."

      Didn't even know about that one... then again, I'm on a MacBook Pro, so just pressing the Power button to get the same effect was good enough for me so far.
