Mac OS X 10.4.10 Available Now

Big fixes ahead of Leopard.

While 3 per cent isn’t a big market share it still makes for a lot of Mac users, many of whom will be chuffed at Tiger’s latest update.

OS X 10.4.10 is officially out now and this one addresses a vast array of issues which Apple officially bullet points as:


*Addresses an issue in which a Bluetooth headset may show up as an available device for sound output in the Sound preference pane after it had been removed from Bluetooth preferences.


*Adds RAW image decoding support for the following cameras: Panasonic DMC-LX1, Panasonic DMC-LX2, Leica M8, Leica D-LUX 2, Leica D-LUX 3, Fuji S5 Pro, Nikon D40x, and Canon EOS 1D Mk III.

*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 dialogue.

*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.

*For Motion, addresses an issue on Intel-based Macs in which some texture corruption could appear in Motion if VRAM is full.

All seems fairly worthwhile to me so: On your marks… Get set… ”Software Update!”… three per cent of you that is.
