I would really like to hear some developer's views.
Is this the build that someone recently said was close but not quite?

No I think this was 8A425. This is 28.

Well, that's alright then. :D

If it's all true, I am happy to see my scepticism about an April release completely scuppered. Sometimes it's nice to be wrong... but I can't get over the April Fools thing, somehow.

AppleInsider reports that Apple declared Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger build 8A428 as the Gold Master (shipping version) today and that Apple may announce completion of Tiger as early as tomorrow.

Mac OS X 10.4 has been rumored to be announced on April 1.

8A420 only had one known issue - it wouldn't boot on 1.33 GHz iBooks with SuperDrives. 8A425 fixed that, then they must've found one other problem before 8A428.

Yeah, but to those in Cupertino 10 4 is the 4th of October.

In other news... yay! Looking forward to it, lots.

It still seems sketchy to think that they could have CDs/DVDs burnt, printed, packaged, and shipped by April 15th. That only gives them 2 weeks to get all that done.

Apple likes to unveil new OSes with lots of fanfare and promos. I don't think they'd release it without it being available.

...or have they sped up their production process now?

P.S. Any word on Server?
