Complete information on the update can be found here. Besides the usual information, there is this little note of caution:
You may experience unexpected results if you have third-party system software modifications installed, or if you've modified the operating system through other means. (This does not apply to normal application software installation.)
Presumably, this a reference to mods and hacks, but which mods and hacks is always the question, and the answer is probably the better part of valor when updating. Also interesting is the fact that there are only two decimal places left for updates until 10.5, which would numerically indicate Leopard. However, more than six months remain until Macworld 2007, the earliest date that has been talked about for the release of Leopard. Does this mean that Apple is ahead of schedule with Leopard, that we can expect only two more updates to Tiger in the next six months, or will Apple being issuing 10.4.10?
