Apple has seeded new versions of Mac OS X 10.4.6 to developers. The newest versions offer some additional fixes to Internet Connect, ImageIO, QuartzCore, AFP Serevr, WebKit Plugins, and Help Viewer.

At present the release has no known issues in these builds.

Mac OS X 10.4.5 was recently released in February 2006.

Thank goodness, maybe

I hope this works because help viewer works about 20 percent of the time for me, despite trying every fix I can find on the internet.

How's about some updated drivers for the ATI mobility radeon 9700 which crashes my whole machine every day since I bought it. Give me some new drivers or take the machine back!

Ethernet Chipset Fix....

Hopefully this fixes the issue w/ the GE chipset where you get 75%+ packet loss when plugged into a dot1q port. This is a real issue when you connect to a corporate network that uses VoIP where the IT department uses the "Voice VLAN" feature to allow computers and VoIP phones to plug into network ports and join the correct VLAN.

Mickyesoft Office and Notes

Hope this fixes the Micro$oft hangs when restarting the machine and stops crashing the Lotus Notes Compacter daemon. The Notes is really annoying since I need to restart every time.

Hope they'll come out soon with Universal code....

I use the same graphics in my PowerBook G4 and never have a problem with it. What system are you using and what causes it to crash?

Wow fixes to Help Viewer. Would be nice to have that work for a change, fresh install of OS X couldn't even bring my Help Viewer back to life...

The main thing I hope this fixes is the problem of having to unplug and plugin your keyboard all the time because the keyboard entirely will stop working or the media keys will stop working on the new Intel Macs.

I have an intel Imac and I have *never* had to unplug my keyboard...
Are you sure you don't have a hardware issue.??

MBP keyboard problem

I have not had any issues with the KB, but my mouse trackpad on the Macbook Pro sometimes stops working. The keyboard will still work, but I need to either put the computer to sleep and awake again or start typing again, before I can reuse the trackpad.

Please elaborate on your problem. The same thing is happening to my Powerbook with the 9700. I wake it from sleep, open up safari, and it freezes. No kernal panic, the screen just freezes and I have to force reboot.

I've only had the machine for a few weeks, and it's really annoying me.

I've had a Macintel for several weeks now and never had that problem. :confused:

I do hope it might fix a problem with front row when I try to access the movies files on the HD. the whole computer freezes and I can't even force quite!:mad:

As long as it fixes the Intelmac wireless networking issues and the Intel iMac keyboard-issue (without having to get keyboards replaced) I'm happy.

FrontRow Movies Problem - minor snag

I had the same problem. It took me a long, long time to figure this out. The problem is that I had Video files that Quicktime couldn't handle. Some AVI files or something.

To fix it (make it work), move all of the files that won't run under Quicktime out of the Movies folder. I created a new Movie folder and called it Windows Movies and moved all the AVIs to that folder.

I hope this helps you. I didn't see anyone else mention this before and I never asked. I thought I was doing something wrong...

Good Luck!

Take Care,
Quark

10.4.5 has been flawless for me. I'm almost scared to upgrade when this does come out. I'm so happy after having issues in x.2 and x.3 that I don't really want to change anything unless they're adding features.
