Apple releases last pre-Leopard update for Mac OS X

Tiger hits 10.4.9

Apple has updated Mac OS X to version 10.4.9, offering patches for both Intel and PowerPC versions of the operating system, taking in its server and client forms. The company has also updated its iPhoto application, and beefed up the security of Mac OS X 10.3.9.

The operating system updates apply fixes to a wide array of components, including graphics drivers, Bluetooth, networking, image handling, font management, sync services, Dashboard widgets and Rosetta, Intel-based Macs' PowerPC compatibility mechanism.

Apple also claimed the update speeds application launch times.

The iPhoto patch simply "addresses issues associated with EXIF data compatibility and Photocasting", Apple said.

Finally, Security Update 2007-003 blocks a number of holes in a variety of system components for Mac OS X 10.3.9. It also contains fixes previously applied by Security Update 2006-007.

All the updates can be downloaded from Apple's support website here.
