In the dead of night (or evening in the US of A), Apple released the first 'software update' to OSX Tiger. The release comes a scant few weeks after the OS was unleashed in a blaze of publicity, and fixes niggles that early adopters have been reporting since. Apple Insider has those fixes in a nutshell:

- File sharing using AFP and SMB/CIFS network file services
- Using DHCP in wireless networks
- User login when accessing LDAP and Active Directory servers
- Core graphics including updated ATI and NVIDIA graphics drivers
- Synchronization with .Mac
- Address Book, iCal, Font Book, Mail, and Preview applications
- Dashboard widgets: Address Book, Flight Tracker, Phone Book, and World Clock
- Creating and burning disk images using Disk Utility and System Image Utility (Remove)
- Compatibility with third party applications and devices

More on that at Apple Insider.

If you want more specific details on the fixes, you can find them over at the Apple Website. As always, the update will be delivered via OSX's inbuilt software update system, and Tiger users should see the update hitting their machines today.
