According to embedded sources deep inside Cupertino, Apple is readying an update to the recently released OSX 'Tiger'. Codenamed 'Atlanta', (No chance of a law suit there, unless the city decides to take them on) it will fix a plethora of bug-ettes that the some users have been experiencing over the last week. These issues have been reported on over at AppleInsider:

Some of the key areas to be targeted by the update include: AFPServer, AddressBook, AppKit, Bluetooth, Carbon, CoreFoundation, CoreGraphics, DashBoard Widgets, DVD Player, Directory Services, Fonts, Help, iCal, iSync, Mail, Preview, Printing, OpenLDAP, Quartz, SecurityAgent, and WebCore.

Insiders also believe that Mac OS X 10.4.1 will include updates to Tiger's .Mac synchronization and notification components and pack a new version of the Mac OS X xnu kernel.


The update will be delivered sometime mid to late May via OSX's software update mechanism, and will reportedly weigh in at 35Mb. As to how widespread the issues covered by the update are, I haven't a clue - as Tiger has been purring away contentedly on my PowerBook with no problems to report.

A full list of fixes covered can be found at AppleInsider, and you can discuss this news item in the forums.
