Mac OS X 10.3.4 could come as early as this week

“Apple Computer seeded developers on Monday with yet another external build of Mac OS X 10.3.4 Panther, which carries build number 7H63,” AppleInsider reports. “According to sources, the most recent set of developer notes no longer cite any know issues with the system update… sources said that the Mac OS X 10.3.4 quality assurance testing is near complete and the system update could be released as early as this week.”

  1. Hmmm, I am pretty pleased with things as they are. More speed would be nice and fixing the remaining security holes would be cool but the holes will probably be another security update in a few weeks.

  2. directly from 10.3.4 to 10.4 🙁
    I knew it 🙁
    Now everybody starts whining that they have to pay $128 of the mere 0.0.6 upgrade.

  3. I am a devoted Mac user (and Windows teacher, ugh), but the only pass I can give Apple for not responding (even a press release acknowledgement) about the current open security holes is if this OS X update patches those holes. Otherwise, I am pissed. Even if a patch comes next to follow, they should be talking about it now, warning Mac users what to do, what NOT to do, etc. Anything else is irresponsible.


  4. Wow, if we were using Windows it would be equivalent to Service Pack 4. But, since we know we’re not Windows users and Redmond can’t even come up with Service Pack 2 it just reiterates why Apple is so much better.

  5. In addition to Safari and Mail bugs, they really need to fix file sharing and VPN access on Windows Server. If DAVE can make this work (for a steep fee), there’s absolutely no reason OS X can’t do it on its own. Unfortunately, a lot of business users are stuck using M$ servers, and Apple needs to continue to refine access to these networks.

  6. OSX can’t see when a shared windows folder’s content changes…. i always had to re-open the folder…. hope they fix this….

    windows on its part can automatically updates the changes made in shared mac folders…. if they can do it, osx should be able to do it too… this seems to be such a simple thing.

  7. Umm, ToeKnee Apple addressed your security holes with Security Update 2004-05-24 released on Monday. What more do you want than a 3 working day response time?
