An article over at AppleInsider fleshes out details as to how Apple has begun contacting its developer communities and asked for feedback as to current builds to a Mac OS X 10.4.9 operating system update.
Sources familiar with Apple stated that as of last Thursday, the company began distributing the first external software compile of the update to members of the Apple Developer Connection. The current build is apparently available as a bare-bones “Delta” updater and a larger “Combo” version with wider hardware support.
Apple has reportedly asked the developer community to focus its testing on components such as .Mac, Bluetooth, Bonjour, FireWire, Graphics and USB. The company also drew attention to Flash, Automator, Dashboard, Fonts, iChat video conferencing, Sync Services and iSync when it released the builds.
According to the release, users can expect fixes for issues related to Rosetta emulation, USB Modem, caller ID, the Universal Access preference pane, Bluetooth and device pairing, QC Engine, CoreGraphics and the HID Manager.
Apple last released a major update for Mac OS X back in September when it distributed Mac OS X 10.4.8 and an additional release is expected before the company releases its Mac OS X 10.5 operating system in 2007.
