Still here.
Installed nicely. No problems whatsoever, although I can't really say that I notice any difference in either direction, to be honest.

Dashboard was cool for 5 minutes after I loaded Tiger. Then I realized how much CPU those little buggers use...

Needless to say, I will not be loading these new widgets on.

Widgets take up memory, but unless I'm mistaken they only use CPU cycles when the Dashboard layer is invoked. Recent updates have fixed a number of memory leak problems I used to see with some widgets. Nowadays I have no issues with Dashboard.

New Feature

The "Architecture" has gone from the Info page on Applications, replaced by a line that states either:

Kind: Application (PowerPC) or
Kind: Application (Universal)

I guess this is better than the Architecture: PowerPC, Intel we had before.

just wanted to let y'all know - I dont have this.
Hmmm... I'll reboot again to see if it goes away. Very odd. I don't remember if I had UNO installed or not on this machine.

Mine's not like that either.

Nor for me. So far, all I've noticed is that the Architecture line has gone (as mentioned above), there are new widgets as Steve announced this morning, and there is now a message about licensing in Software Update.

works great on my ibook 12" 1.33 GHz. Installed smoothly, rebooted, repaired permissions, and everything seems to be working great.


May I ask why you repaired the permissions?

Well, it works ok on my mac. After restarting, I got a question whether I wanted systemuiserver to update something- I answered 'change all'. First thing I did was to disable a ton of widgets. But I can't notice any difference in performance etc.

It doesn't say on any of the info sheets, so does anyone know if this fixes the fan problems on PM G5's? MAJOR annoyance for me with 10.4.3...
I hope it fixes that chirping problem, although I haven't heard that in a while (maybe I'm used to it).

Ok did anyone else get the Mac OS X Start Up Assistant after installing 10.4.4?

How odd:confused:

what about the lines issue?

Hey, PB 15 owners (new high definition screen model), does the update fixes the "lines issue"?

That's the problem, Lacero. I had Iridium (another brushed-metal-and-pinstripes-remover) installed before the update and I ended up with the same problem. I uninstalled Iridium and now the Spotlight portion of the menu bar is back to normal. I guess those of us who prefer a unified GUI will have to wait for Iridium or UNO to come out with a 10.4.4-compatible version.

Widget memory gets "fat" for some reason after a software update that requires a restart. If you quit the dock or just restart your computer again, you should see your widget memory drastically reduced.
