Apple releases Mac OS X 10.4.10

First palindromic version number?

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Apple has posted Mac OS X 10.4.10, the first palindromic - well, sort of - version number to be applied to its Unix-based operating system. The update includes fixes and tweaks for both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs.

What's it do? Apple is as terse as ever, but the patch incorporates bug fixes for the OS' Bluetooth software and improves the way the system software mounts and ejects USB devices, external hard drives in particular. It also adds support for RAW-format photos generated by a range of digital cameras.

Other tweaks centre on a range of individual apps. And of course all the most recent security updates have also been implemented in the new release. Apple's list of fixes can be found here.

The Mac OS X 10.4.10 patch is available through the OS' own software update system, or it can be downloaded in the usual varieties - client and server; PowerPC and Intel; full update and delta - at the Apple website.
