Apple seeds Mac OS X 10.4.4 8G14
Apple has seeded the new build both for Server and Client versions of OS X. The client version (combo updater) weighs in at roughly 112 MB (delta updaters will, of course, be much smaller, so don't expect over 100 MB worth of improvements over 10.4.3!) and contains a lot of changes in AirPort, Bluetooth, WebKit etc. as well as the usual "general improvements". Although some sources claim Apple's preparing for a pre-christmas release, others point out that the work is mainly aimed at supporting new hardware that will come out in early January (and is cross-platform, as Apple is internally keeping intel 10.4.4 builds up-to-date with the PowerPC builds now.
Either way: 8G14 still has a couple of known issues as well as probably some that will crop up over the next week. We currently expect 10.4.4 to reach well into 8G2x builds if not 8G3x numbers.
