Apple Releases Mac OS X 10.4.10
With Leopard pushed off until October, Apple is continuing to update Mac OS 10.4, with its tenth update to the operating system being released Thursday, including fixes for Bluetooth and USB issues, among others.
The patch is generally smaller than previous ones, with only 13 issues fixed. It also follows an unusual naming convention -- 10.4.10: typically the 10.x.9 upgrade heralded the imminent release of the next version of the OS, which would be 10.5 in this case.
Issues with how Mac OS X handles Bluetooth headsets were fixed, as well as issues with the TomTom GO 910 on Intel-based Macs. USB reliability issues with the IR remote after sleep, and the mounting of external hard drives have also been fixed.
Apple has added native RAW image decoding support for Panasonic DMC-LX1, Panasonic DMC-LX2, Leica M8, Leica D-LUX 2, Leica D-LUX 3, Fuji S5 Pro, Nikon D40x, and Canon EOS 1D Mk III cameras, as well as resolving DNG image issues.
Compatibility with Mathematica 6 on 64-bit Macs has additionally been improved, the company said.
Other fixes include: the responsiveness of the shutdown dialog using Control-Eject; issues with importing video from a DV camera; calendar calculation issues; decimal rounding issues; and issues in Motion that would cause texture corruption if the VRAM is full.
All recent security updates for Mac OS X are also be included with the 10.4.10 release.
