Are these good news ?

Apple has seeded Mac OS X 10.4.9 (8P2111) to developers tonight. The newest version of Tiger (10.4) promises fixes to a number of areas.
A number of fixes have been documented. Among those, include bugs wtih Sync Service Engine, rsync and extended attributes, .Mac Sync, Rosetta, USB Modem and caller ID, Bluetooth device pairing, USB modem busy tone detection, QC Engine, Core Graphics and HID Manager, PDFKit and MallocGuardEdges, and Automator Actions.
Meanwhile, Apple asks developers to stress certain areas for testing beyond those described in the bug fixes. These areas include Adobe Flash, bash, bind, Bonjour, Dashboard Widgets, FireWire, Fonts, gnutar, Graphics, and iChat Video Conferencing.

Of course, but from what is addressed, isn't the core graphics what is causing the problem with SD?

"We can't comment on unreleased OS versions" is all I can say.

Note that most of the previous system updates have included changes/fixes for core graphics. Although core graphics is mentioned in your list above, that does not mean that they have fixed what is causing this specific issue in this update ... we'll know soon enough however.

I also want to emphasize that just because the crash always seems to be in Core Graphics doesn't mean the underlying problem is in Core Graphics. It's just we can see a certain pattern in the crash logs which always have Core Graphics involved... but it's best to leave the actual cause of the problem (as opposed to the symptom) up to the engineers who can debug it.

Ooops, I am sorry Dave, it seems that I touched a sensitive issue without knowing.

Anyway, for all of you guys, I wish the best of the best for Christmas and a terrific new year :-)
