Apple releases OS X 10.4.7

Posted by Dr. Macenstein

Apple today released yet another “dot� update to Mac OS X 10.4, taking us to 10.4.7. There are separate versions for both PPC and Intel Macs, but the features and addressed issues appear to be identical. Most notable among the new features are a slew of audio enhancements across Apple’s wide range of audio and pro editing apps including iTunes, Final Cut and Soundtrack. Some AFP networking issues and Bluetooth file transfer issues have also been resolved. The update is available via software update or as a standalone download. We have installed the PPC version on our dual 2GHz G5, and so far so good.

The complete list of fixes/enhancements is as follows:

– The 10.4.7 Update is recommended for all users and includes general operating system fixes, as well as specific fixes for the following applications and technologies.
It includes fixes for:
– preventing AFP deadlocks and dropped connections
– saving Adobe and Quark documents to AFP mounted volumes
– Bluetooth file transfers, pairing and connecting to a Bluetooth mouse, and syncing to mobile phones
– audio playback in QuickTime, iTunes, Final Cut Pro, and Soundtrack applications
– ensuring icons are spaced correctly when viewed on desktop
– determining the space required to burn folders
– iChat audio and video connectivity, creating chat rooms when using AIM
– importing files into Keynote 3
– PDF workflows when using iCal and iPhoto
– reliable use of Automator actions within workflows
– importing and removing fonts in Font Book
– syncing addresses, bookmarks, calendar events and files to .Mac
– compatibility with third party applications and devices
– previous standalone security updates
