Apple Seeds Mac OS X 10.6.4 Build 10F37 to Developers






As predicted last week, Apple has seeded the first developer version of Mac OS X 10.6.4, termed Build 10F37, to developers today. iPhoneinCanada as usual is on top of the details, noting improvements to a handful of areas.
Quote:
According to reports, the current build focuses on Graphics Drivers, SMB, Time Machine backups, USB, and VoiceOver. The build does not include any further updates or enhancements.
Documentation accompanying the seed reportedly notes one outstanding known issue involving iChat requesting password entry upon launch.

Mac OS X 10.6.3 was released to the public on March 29th, but Apple's variable development and seeding cycles offer little indication of when 10.6.4 might be ready for a final release.

Please!

Can a late 08 MBP get some inertial scrolling in this piece?

I'm hoping for the same thing, but I don't see it happening.

I knew it. I bet 10.6.5 comes after this.

I think they should add this with 10.6.4 also. I'll give it a 50-50 chance. If it doesn't happen, the guy who makes Better Touch Tool (a must have productivity app BTW) said he will add it to his app.

I am hoping they fix the problems with a really slow magic mouse. Even at the highest settings, it is slow. Apple only makes one mouse; how hard can it be to get it right?

Just to be clear, we mean the MBP trackpad and not the Magic Mouse, right? Because the Magic Mouse already has inertial scrolling in 10.6.

See my posts on mouse tracking and acceleration in the OS X forum.

I've been having random, horrible graphics glitches ever since I updated to the most recent build. I hope this resolves that.

The seeds starting maybe, but 10.6.2 to 10.6.3 was I believe the longest time between revisions in OS X's lifetime.

Having said that, 10.5.2 to 10.5.3 was also about 3 months and 10.5.3 was called 'imminent' as early as March 17, eventually coming out early May.

It's a hardware issue.

The hardware isn't capable of this feature.

Nope. The last 10.6.3 update was nearly the longest wait since OS X. You are confusing seeds with updates, the seeds is on par with Leopard or any other major OS release. There are some months where we'll begin to see seeds weekly or biweekly. It doesn't mean anything.

It'd be sweet to get inertial scrolling.

It would be cool if they could fix the Finder's exceedingly slow SMB browsing. Navigating my Solaris system's CIFS shares is an exercise in frustration, hair-pulling, and a terribly large amount of swearing.

I find Samba in general to be immensely slow, sometimes failing to work at all on Linux.

SMB?!?!?!?!?! Finally. Hopefully this fixes the wireless file transfer issues that 10.6.3 did not. .3 did fix wired issues, I just need the wireless to work.

27 inch iMac Sleep Issues

I hope this fixes the problems I've been having with my 27 inch iMac. Since I bought it in November it has been refusing to go to sleep on its own, with random times when it does.

I've sent in bug reports and all of that, and I know others are having the same problems. I just can't seem to find a permanent solution.

That being said, good to see Apple is continuing to fix the bugs and keep Mac OS X great.

Me three! Leopard was much faster accessing SMB drives than Snow Leopard. I hope Apple is addressing this issue, but if we haven't seen a fix yet they probably won't fix it.

Glad the updates are coming quick.. could this mean that 10.7 will be released earlier then expected?

The rate of updates have nothing to do with development of the main OS X.x.
