Apple Releases Mac OS X 10.4.5
As Microsoft heralded the arrival of February's Patch Tuesday, Apple had its own Valentine's Day present for loyal users: the fifth update for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. The release tackles a number of minor issues in the operating system, including bugs in Safari and networking, along with a slew of Intel-related fixes.
With the first Intel iMacs already in customers' hands and Apple's MacBook Pro shipping this week, Apple has used Mac OS X 10.4.5 to correct small problems across a variety of applications, including Dashboard, QuickTime, Front Row, and with streaming media. All Mac OS X users can upgrade to the new version through the system's built-in Software Update mechanism.
