Apple Release New Point Release

Many people expected Apple to stop releasing point releases for OS X 10.4 (Tiger) after they released OS X 10.4.9 earlier this year, especially with OS X 10.5 (Leopard) due for release later this year.

Apple's recent release of OS X 10.4.10 has come as a pleasant surprise, providing new security fixes for networking problems (see associated Security entry), and general system improvements. Amongst the improvements for the system are improved support for RAW cameras, better handling of external USB devices, and improved handling and support of third party software.

Due to the bundled security fix for IPv6 networking support, it is imperative that administrators and users apply the update at the earliest opportunity.

The 25 MB update is available through the Software Update option under the Apple Menu, or from the Apple downloads site.
