Mac OS X Apple recently seeded developers with yet another build of Mac OS X 10.4.11, destined to be the final update to Tiger. Builds 8S155 (PowerPC) and 8S2155 (Intel) deliver an additional number of bug fixes, including remedies to issues with the BSD Kernel and interlock timeouts, ASR and scanning and restoring, CoreText Layout, and a bug with ImageCapture that creates problems downloading images from an iPhone when the phone has a large number of saved photos.

The other thing to bear in mind is usually Apple only annouces the major things when a product is close to release.

It's a method microsoft should adopt, as they start hyping straight away, making unrealistic expectations by the time of release. Look what happened to Vista, there was sooo much talk about it, starting in 2003. By 2007 there is no way any product could live up to that hype.

I am really looking forward to Leopard, but it's nice to know that apple are still activley support tiger, hopefully the support will last a while.

The main difference is that 10.1 through now are upgrades of the same version of the OS. XP to Vista is akin (rather, how MS hyped) to the switch between OS 9 and OS X.

I think the incremental hype between .X releases is the same as XP to SP1, SP2 and so on.

Had the XP to Vista switch panned out with all those promises, there's no doubt people would've been excited for Vista.
