News Flash: Mac OS X 10.4.2 around the cornerApple Computer's new Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" operating system is less than a month old, but already the company is rumored to be knocking the kinks out the second maintenance release, Mac OS X 10.4.2.
Rumor has it that the operating system update, the second on a list of many scheduled for Tiger, could be released within the next 45 days.
So far there is no word on which key enhancements Mac OS X 10.4.2 is expected to deliver, but tipsters said builds of the operating system should begin to surface within a week's time.
The most recent version of Tiger is Mac OS X 10.4.1, which Apple released on May 16th — about 2 weeks after Tiger was released to the purchasing public.
