    I'm getting it too. 10.4.10 for PowerPC - 22.1mb.



    That's quite small for one of these updates isn't it?

    Apple on Wednesday afternoon released Mac OS X 10.4.10, a free maintenance update recommended for all PowerPC and Intel-based Mac computers running versions of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger.



    Mac OS X 10.4.10 Client



    The update (72MB download for Intel Macs and 25MB download for PowerPC Macs) includes general operating system fixes, as well as specific enhancements to RAW camera support and third-party application support.



    More specifically, Apple lists the following improvements, which apply to both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs unless otherwise noted:



    BluetoothAddresses 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.Third-party

    Adds RAW image decoding support for the following cameras: Panasonic DMC-LX1, Panasonic DMC-LX2, Leica M8, Leica D-LUX 2, Leica D-LUX 3, Fuji S5 Pro, Nikon D40x, and Canon EOS 1D Mk III.Resolves an issue in which some DNG images may appear tinted or distorted.Improves compatibility of Mathematica 6 with 64-bit Macs.

    USBImproves reliability when using the IR remote control after waking from sleep.Improves reliability when mounting external USB hard drives.Resolves an issue in which a TomTom GO 910 may not be recognized when connected via USB to an Intel-based Mac.

    OtherImproves responsiveness when using the Control-Eject key combination to display a shutdown dialog.Addresses a specific issue in which users importing video from a DV camera may experience dropped frames.Includes recent Apple security updates.Addresses issues with calendar calculations in certain applications.Addresses issues when rounding decimal numbers for display in certain applications.For Motion, addresses an issue in which some texture corruption could appear in Motion if VRAM is full.

    Mac OS X 10.4.10 Server



    Accompanying the release was a similar update to Mac OS X 10.4 Server, which delivers the same set of enhancements as its client cousin, sans those improvements relating to calendar calculations, decimal displays and Motion.



    The Mac OS X Server 10.4.10 Update is available as a 58MB download for PowerPC-based Tiger servers and a 391MB download for their Intel-based equivalents.



    Combo versions of both the client and server updates, which allow users to upgrade Macs running pre-Mac OS X 10.4.9 builds, are also available from Apple's support site.

    Yes! Finally we don't have to sit through stupid arguments about how 10.4.9 will be the last before 10.5.0 because of the decimal point!

    10.4.10 is just a more precise version of 10.4.1, right?

    No improved device compatibility for iSync, it looks like.



    49 MB for me as well, AI must have gotten something wrong?



    Edit: Ironically enough, my apple keyboard attached usb memory stick didn't automount on startup.

    I'm downloading it now 49m

    I hope it solves the non mounting USB hard drive issue.

    Nice of Apple to finally admit it is a problem

    As I also wrote on macrumors:



    just found something interesting...



    in 10.4.10 a few new Displays has been added under

    /System/Library/Displays/Overrides/DisplayVendorID-610



    More specifically 14 of them, where 4 are really interesting:



    And these 4 are:

    DisplayProductID-9c6a

    DisplayProductID-9c6b

    DisplayProductID-9c6c

    DisplayProductID-9c71



    which all are for iMacs, excerpts from the files:



    9c6a:



    <key>DisplayProductID</key>

    <integer>40042</integer>

    <key>DisplayProductName</key>

    <string>iMac</string>



    9c6b:



    <key>DisplayProductID</key>

    <integer>40043</integer>

    <key>DisplayProductName</key>

    <string>iMac</string>





    9c6c:

    <key>DisplayProductID</key>

    <integer>40044</integer>

    <key>DisplayProductName</key>

    <string>iMac</string>



    and lastly 9c71:



    <key>DisplayProductID</key>

    <integer>40049</integer>

    <key>DisplayProductName</key>

    <string>iMac</string>



    These files/displaydefinitions are NOT present on a 10.4.9 system!





    Could mean new iMacs on the way, or could mean apple are just changing panels in the iMacs...

    Anyway, some change on the way!

    i dunno, but something happened after the reboot, initial load of Firefox was 3 bounces instead of its usual 21 bounces + 30 seconds of beachball.



    I hope this is going to continue on next restart!



    UPDATE: meh, no, still 15+ bounces and that indeterminable beach ball. what a pos.

    Nice find and a good start to posting at Apple Insider.



    I have no idea what it means but your hypothesis seems pretty good.

    No graphics driver updates it seems for both the NVidia 8600 and the GMA that 10.4.9 broke.



    It does seem a bit small. I hope it's a sign of things to come, Apple's 300MB+ updates are annoying.



    I also hope that it addresses some performance issues - you'd think they'd be able to put some system optimizations made in Leopard into Tiger.
