Mac OS 10.4.10

Apple just released the 10.4.10 update to Mac OS Tiger 10.4.  It is available through software update.  The update applies to both Power PC and Intel Macs.  This might be the last revision to Tiger before the release of Leopard.  Another update (10.4.11) is not totally out of question considering 10.3.9 came after the release of Tiger.  Leopard is still fours months away (October release date).
