    Cool
    With the release of this update, it appears that 10.5 will not be released this month.

    Also an update to iPhoto is available.

    I don't thing 10.4.9 implicates anything about 10.5 release date. It's been seeded to developers for a while now and I think it's just a way Apple is bringin Tiger to a definitive end. The changes aren't major, just long-pending bug-fixes, and hardly any new code was written for this update.

    I don't think we'll see Leopard by March 31st either, but I don't base it on this fact. I feel Apple will come about around Easter. I could be wrong, of course. Who knows what'll happen next Tuesday.

    Just installed it along with some other updates that I hadn't gotten around to.

    None of the listed things really affected anything I do in particular, but I figured it was a good excuse to restart the computer after having it running for 11 days straight :black:

    I am glad to see the .Mac sync issues were fixed.

    Also not really related but, iBank received an update today, supposed to fix the performance and crashing issues, but it has already crashed once for me.

    edit: Also, is Google Personalized home displaying funning in Safari now for anyone else?

    OS X 10.4.9 Update not found by Sofware Update
    I'm currently on 10.4.8, but when I run Software Update it says I'm up to date and that no updates are available. Why does it not detect the OS X 10.4.9 Update?

    Sounds like some sort of "pilot error" to me. Worked fine here!

    try restarting your mac then running software update, sometimes i have noticed that helps. i found updates that have been out for a week or so i wasnt detecting, but once i restart and run software update then it finds them for me.

    I just installed it on both, my MacBook and my Mac Pro. And like I expect it from Apple everything went through without any problems.
