Apple Releases Mac OS X 10.4.10 and Mac OS X Server 10.4.10 Update

It has finally arrived, the much-talked-about 10.4.10 update. People were wondering which would be first, 10.5 or 10.4.10, over a year ago, but with the Leopard delay announced earlier this year, there was no longer any real doubt. Other than being the tenth update to Tiger, there is nothing of particular interest about this update. […]

It has finally arrived, the much-talked-about 10.4.10 update. People were wondering which would be first, 10.5 or 10.4.10, over a year ago, but with the Leopard delay announced earlier this year, there was no longer any real doubt. Other than being the tenth update to Tiger, there is nothing of particular interest about this update.

The Mac OS X 10.4.10 Update is recommended for PowerPC and Intel-based Mac computers currently running 
Mac OS X Tiger. This update  includes general operating system fixes, as well as specific fixes or compatibility
updates for the following applications and technologies:

  • RAW camera support
  • Mounting and unmounting external USB devices
  • Support for 3rd party software applications
  • Security updates

Apple also released About Mac OS X Server 10.4.10 Update which is recommended for all servers currently running Mac OS X Tiger. This update includes general operating system fixes, as well as specific fixes or compatibility updates for the following applications and technologies:

  • Mounting and unmounting external USB devices
  • Support for 3rd party software applications
  • Security updates

Amusingly enough, the 10.4.10 update has stirred a lot of comments on the Internet from people claiming that Apple is ripping people off because there is no such thing as 10.4.10, as the ‘number’ 10.5 naturally follows after the ‘number’ 10.4.9. One has to wonder what math these people were taught where numbers can have two decimal points. Maybe Apple should start calling the updates Service Packs to make things easier, or perhaps start counting in hexadecimal.

With Leopard still some time away and Apple releasing updates rather quickly, we may even see 10.4.11 and 10.4.12 before October and the big 10.5 comes around.

Mac OS X 10.4.10 Update is available via Software Update and also as standalone delta and combo installers.
