Late Tuesday, Apple began informing select developers that there will be at least one more maintenance update to Mac OS X 10.4 prior to the planned release of Mac OS X 10.5 this October.
According to AppleInsider, developers have yet to begin receiving the first pre-release seeds of the software version.
Sources close to the project have stated that an unresolved third-party webcam bug that arose with Mac OS X 10.4.10 may be targeted. The bug prevents third-party webcams from being detected as USB audio devices, thereby making them inaccessible as a USB audio device except when running under the Parallels Desktop for Mac virtualization software.
The webcam bug appears to only surface on Intel-based Macs. Apple has yet to comment on the issue or submit a fix for it.
Stay tuned for additional details as they emerge and if you’ve found problems or workarounds for bugs in Mac OS X 10.4.10, let us know in the forums.
