OS X 10.4.8

Category : Technology/10dot4dot8.txt

I've updated our own live server to OS X 10.4.8. The good news is that DNS, POP, IMAP, Fetchmail and Postfix services all continue to work OK in 10.4.8.

However the "WorkAround-Bonjour" stall that Apple introduced with 10.4.7 is still there, unfixed.

But the important thing is that all the services continue to work properly once you get past that (less than) one minute stall (when you enable a system service via a call to launchd - the "recommended way" that all applications are supposed to use when launching system services).
