Apple seeds 10.4.3 8F45
New build, no known issues. Apple is expected to release this build or the next during the coming week.
To remind you of the size of this update: There have been a lot of bug fixes since 10.4.2, but there have also been a lot of bugs in 10.4.3 builds that had to be fixed again. The roughly 100 MB sized combo updater only tells half the story. If you're on 10.4.2, the delta updater will be a lot smaller. We encourage users, though, to wait for the availability of the combo updater and to do the update by hand, not via Software Update where only the delta updater is available. (Gut feeling says: The combo updater is better. Logic says: You should keep the combo updater around anyway, because if a reinstall of Tiger comes around, the latest combo updater is already at your place instead of another 100 MB download away.

I hope PowerMac G5 1,8 SP Late 2004 problems are solved with these last builds..?
 
I just received word from a source that Apple Service Providers had been informed that 10.4.3 would solve "these problems". (What are they?)
 
These problems ? Tiger is clearly unusable on a PM G5 1,8 SP. The computer freezes about every 2 hours. More than hundreds of people phoned AppleCare since April.

Apple took more than 5 months to acknowledge the problem :

I really hope that finally I'll be able to use my computer normally with 10.4.3 because until now I've never had a computer that crashes so much.

As I've said, I've been told it's solved. The source seems at the right place, so I guess it's true. You see: Since I haven't had any G5 machine so far - and probably won't, since my next Mac will probably be an intel-based Power- or iBook - my interest in that particular model's problem was of course rather low.

But as I hear more about it, I'll make sure to post information about it. For now, I think you should re-install Tiger when 10.4.3 comes out and apply the update as soon as Tiger's installed. (Maybe have the update ready on CD-R or a memory stick of some kind.)
 
Thank you very much for your news.
