10.4.9, we seem to be getting to the end of Tiger. Does this mean Leopard is right around the corner?

I would assume that means the end of the external iSights for good.

No problems with the update so far. Time to bring on Leopard!

All good here!

I'm glad to see that Apple enabled USB webcams in iChat. That seems long overdue.

Many people have noticed that Panther was released 21 days after the 10.2.9 update and that Tiger was released a short 14 days after the 10.3.9 update....

Looks like Leopard is getting ready to pounce (corny, I know) Razz

Definitely. Hopefully this will encourage companies that make webcams to offer drivers for OS X. I'm just happy that I bought an iSight before Apple discontinued them.

My birthday is the first week of April. That would make a nice present Apple. Very Happy

Doubtful. The nature of the numbering scheme is 10.4.x So we can have 10.4.9 or 10.4.999 or, well you get the idea..

10.5 Will be here when it's ready.

Party pooper! Wink

I really think Leopard will end up being released at the WWDC. This update was just Apple's little 99MB (in my case) teaser.

Don't ask me why, but for some reason Word and Excel are launching a lot slower for me now.

Other than that, everything seems fine.

Same here, Devo. It took 5-6 bounces before the dialogue even came up for Word....

Everything worked fine during install. No problems unlike the last security update. It hasn't made any effect on Shapeshifter, usually 10.4.x increments have some sort of issue, but not this time.

I agree. Apple likely wants to make those who decide to run Tiger happy and those who want to run Leopard even happier Smile The .9 could be coincidence or planning. Who knows (other than Apple)?

The end is near my friends! Laughing

Well the long wait will soon be over, Leopard should be around the corner quite soon now. So how long do you think it'll be? Within this month or the beginning of April?

I'm guessing June 19th. It's the last Tuesday that Apple could still say is Spring 2007.
