Leopard Delayed: A call for 10.4.10

[NOTE: This post was originally published April 13, 2007 @ 16:23 on my personal blog. It has been moved here to consolidate all my Apple-Related rants in one place.]

Apple announced yesterday that the next version of the Mac operating system, OS X 10.5 Leopard, is going to be delayed by 12 weeks.

Today, I’m answering with a request: Issue 10.4.10 to fix what 10.4.9 broke.

Specifically, dropped frames in Final Cut Pro 4.5 during capture, resulting in failed captures. Final Cut Express 3.0 users are suffering the same bug. I simply don’t have the money (or the RAM or Hard Drive space) to upgrade to Final Cut Pro 5.x to fix this problem. Using iMovie is not a suitable workaround.

If the politics of explaining that numbers do not have two decimal points is keeping you from releasing 10.4.10, I suggest calling it 10.4.9.1 or 10.4.9a.
