Tiger’s evolution continues: Apple preps Mac OS X 10.4.10 update

Apple Store“With the release of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard pushed back to October, Apple has bought itself more time to tie loose ends in the current Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger operating system and will put forth those fixes via its first ‘dot ten’ software update in quite some time, AppleInsider has learned,” Kasper Jade and Katie Marsal report for AppleInsider.

The Mac maker hopes to stabilize the software to the point where it can begin seeding copies of the software update externally to its thousands of Apple Developer Connection members as early as next week,” Jade and Marsal report. “Apple may also tap the impending Tiger update to lend software support to an upcoming series of Mac hardware updates that will include refreshed MacBook Pro notebooks and redesigned 20- and 24-inch iMac all-in-one desktop systems.”

“Apple last updated Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger in March, when it released Mac OS X 10.4.9 ,” Jade and Marsal report.

  1. A LOT MORE SECURITY FIXES TO COME

    Apple should be ashamed of itself for the rather high level of potential exploits (70 something?) since this version debuted.

    Yea sure little resulted in little malware, just because of the low market share and virtually no Mac’s in the more corrupt areas of the world.

  2. Thank God we won’t have to hear any more morons claiming that the next version of Tiger is going to be 10.4.9.1 or something idiotic like that. Software doesn’t use the decimal system, so 10.4.10 is correct…

  3. @SecretlyStupid

    LOL, what a troll. And you complain about Apple being pro-active about security?

    That is 70 TIMES APPLE BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF FUCKING LOSER VIRUS WRITERS

    Apple 70
    Fucking Loser virus writers 0

  4. 10.4.10 has a nice ring to it, as the last version of Tiger. The Leopard delay has benefited users of older systems that may not be supported by Leopard. This is one final release of Tiger that may not have been released if Leopard was already out there. Since it is likely all G3 systems will be left behind with Leopard, this release is welcome.
