About 6 months ago I covered the impending release of 10.4.9. I made the assumption that it would be the last update to 10.4 and that Leopard would be soon to follow… (As long as no one tells my wife, I’ll admit to being wrong on those 2 points – but nothing more!) A rather lengthy discussion grew in the comments about the versioning conventions being used. Looks like some of those folks may turn out to be right.
Ars points out that it appears the next update to 10.4 may be in the works with the delay of Leopard. Further, it looks as if the 10.4.10 version number may be applied when it drops.
