10.4.7 Apple Bug Friday Review

Sunday, 2006-09-17; 01:02:00

10.4.7 has been out for a while now, so in case 10.4.8 comes out soon, here's the table for 10.4.7.

[UPDATE 2006-09-19; 21:45: Apple has resolved my connection issues with the Bug Reporter, and I have updated the table with the state information of the most recent bugs. Since a significant number of bugs have disappeared from the 'My Originated Problems' page, I've also added dashed red borders for bugs that fall under that category.]

Total bugs filed: 53 (1 dupe);     Total bugs fixed: 13;     New bugs since last review: 11;

The vast majority of the 7 green-colored fixes here are from iTunes 7 (one of the yellow-colored ones was also fixed a little bit more in iTunes 7). Is it yet apparent how much I love the functional improvements in iTunes 7? Can you see my grin through this webpage? iTunes 7 has some new oddities, though, which will be the focus of my upcoming ABF Madness entry.

Also, please note, the "State in Bug Reporter system" column hasn't been updated because the bug reporter is giving me problems.
