When will this be avalible. I plan on buying a powerbook in like 3 weeks. I hope you can just update it. Why "release" a new version when tiger is going to be out osoon, just update the bugs and security patches.
But i guess that's cool

They always seem to mess with Networking, FireWire, OpenGL, etc.

They are never perfect. :)

Since Tiger isn't going to be out for another 6-8 months, I doubt this will be the last update to Panther that we'll see. And of course they'll all be free via software update just as 10.3.1, .2, .3 and .4 were...

Well, I have been fortunate enough to not have any complications due to this, but I am having a WiFi networking problem on my iMac 800. I wonder if it is OS-upgrade related.

Hmmm...

I had some wierdness with wireless on my new PB, too... Didn't want to play nice with my existing 802.11g stuff, especially after sleeping. Of course, I'm an code-rewriting fanatic, and look forward to any new updates...

I've had a lot of the networking options turned off whenever a point upgrade comes out. The annoying one is the printer sharing. Why does Apple have to turn this off every time?

Duff-Man says...have you paid attention to any of the info about Tiger? It has been made *very* clear right from the WWDC presentation that 10.4 is *at least* 6 months away, possibly as long as a year. So, yes, there will still be updates to 10.3 and you will be able to use your software update to get them for free....oh yeah!

Does apple stop updates when new OS released?

just a quick question, when Panther was released did Apple stop relasing free updates for Jaguar (my computer came with Panther so I wouldn't have a clue)

Yes Apple stops Updates once new OS versions ship. Jaguar Updated ended at 10.2.8 if I remember Correctly.

Their have been no 10.2.x upgrades since Panther came out but we are still getting bug fixes and security updates at this time. :)

I hope it doesn't take a whole year for Tiger to be released. It'd be cool if it could be early 2005 instead of closer to Spring. Good to see they'll be updating Panther still while we wait :D

Great another release. That means another bug report to apple reporting the transparent text ghosting bug in terminal. They had the same problem in 10.1.

I guess that's why I'm writing my own terminal. One that doesn't take 65% of the cpu when you do a while true ; echo hi ; done

It wouldn't kill Apple to at least standardize all versions of certain programs, oh, like SAFARI for example. The irony for me is that I can't run Panther at home b/c I have an upgraded Beige G3 (OK, well, I could, but there's still a lot of interfacing work left to be done), but I run Panther at work on an old G3/350 iMac. It's a real pain in the butt to still be working on Safari 1.0.2 on a better system. :rolleyes:

Thinksecret reports that Apple has already seeded Mac OS X 10.3.5 to developers today.

According to the rumor site, the new seed has changes in Mail, Safari, OpenGL, Networking, Graphics, Bluetooth, Firewire, and Audio/Sound.

The newest revision of Panther is said to be running on the (as yet) unreleased dual 2.5GHz PowerMac G5s.


If memory serves me correctly (and if you want to buy some swamp land in ....):

The first seed of 10.3.4 was on/about 4/20 with a full release on 5/26....

so in roughly one month we should see 10.3.5.....??

Kewl.

That's a good observation. And it's strange because being based on BSD you would think it would have the oldest and most stable networking code of any system.
