Apple releases Mac OS X 10.4.10

Updated Mac OS fixes Bluetooth & other bugs

Apple has released Mac OS X 10.4.10, addressing several issues in the operating system.

Among the changes with the update is a fix for an issue in which a Bluetooth headset may show up as an available device for sound output in the Sound preference pane after it had been removed from Bluetooth preferences.

The update also addresses several USB issues including improving reliability when using the IR remote control after waking from sleep. Reliability when mounting external USB hard drives has been improved as well. Users of the Tom Tom GO 910 should no longer have a problem with the device being recognised when connected via USB to an Intel-based Mac.

Mac OS X 10.4.10 adds RAW image decoding support for several cameras including the Panasonic DMC-LX1, Panasonic DMC-LX2, Leica M8, Leica D-LUX 2, Leica D-LUX 3, Fuji S5 Pro, Nikon D40x and the Canon EOS 1D Mk III.

An issue where some DNG images may appear tinted or distorted has also been corrected and compatibility of Mathematica 6 with 64-bit Macs has been improved.

Several other minor issues such as calendar calculations, importing video from a DV camera and texture corruption that could appear in Motion if the VRAM is full have also been fixed.

The update is available through the Software Update preference pane or you can download the Intel or PowerPC updates from Apple's website.
