Mac OS X Apple on Tuesday afternoon began informing a select group of developers that it plans at least one more maintenance update to its Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger operating system ahead of October's planned release of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Since developers have yet to received the first pre-release seeds of the software update, details outside of the version numbering - Mac OS X 10.4.11 - are few and far between.

it's nice to see that apple cares about his customers

As a customer having waited 8 weeks for a new MacBook Pro, with still no computer in sight, I'd say that they could care quite a bit more about their customers.

Good to see that they'll push out another update before Leopart, though.

*shrugs* for me, I'm waiting till next year when the new Intel GPU's and processors come out - so I'm stick with my HP laptop for now running Solaris :-)

True - but it could ne a bad sign - backwards compatibility for some applications is being dropped - hence the need to support it longer than required. So it could be a double edge sword.
