Briefly: Mac OS X 10.4.11, iWeb, Woz, giant Apple logoApple this week seeded new builds of Mac OS X 10.4.11 Update and also offered iLife '08 owners a small fix for iWeb 2.0. Meanwhile, we've got photos of workers hoisting a giant Apple logo in Glasgow. And it appears Woz has made a new friend.
Apple continues to plug away at Mac OS X 10.4.11 Update, which is widely expected to be amongst the final updates to the company's "Tiger" operating system before all focus shifts to "Leopard."
The latest builds —8S144 (for PowerPC Macs) and 8S2144 (for Intel Macs) —address preexisting issues with CoreAudio and m4a files and WebCore Editing, among other things.
Developers say Mac OS X 10.4.11 now includes over two-dozen fixes to the current version of Tiger, Mac OS X 10.4.10. The latest builds are also nearly rid of all known issues, they add.
Apple began widespread testing of Mac OS X 10.4.11 Update at the top of the month, asking developers to test the release across the board.
On Thursday, Apple released an iWeb 2.0.1 update for iLife '08 owners which addresses issues with upgrading and publishing iWeb 1.x websites.
Some iLife '08 owners who had begun updating their iWeb 1.x websites with the just-released iWeb 2.0 software reported that the new version mangled their layouts.
The iWeb 2.0.1 update is available only via Apple's Software Update mechanism at this time.
Woz dating Kathy Griffin
Well, it appears Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and comedian Kathy Griffin are now an item. ContactMusic.com is reporting that the two met
after Woz watched one of Griffin's stand-up shows last month. They're now dating.
Hoisting a massive Apple logo
AppleInsider reader Alasdair Stewart happened to be waiting for a friend outside Apple's future Glasgow retail store on Buchanan street when he noticed a gigantic Apple logo appear.
Given that it was a chance occurrence, he had only his cell phone cam at his disposal. Still, he managed to capture some decent shots of the 4-foot illuminated emblem being hoisted between two stone columns flanking the building's entrance.
The design of logo appears to be similar, if not identical, to the one used inside the glass cube at Apple's subterranean retail store in Midtown Manhattan.
