10.4.8/10.4.9 Apple Bug Friday Review

Saturday, 2007-03-31; 17:18:00

So here's the current table for 10.4.9; if the bug was fixed in 10.4.8, it is noted as such. The 22 bugs from the most recent ABF Madness are not included because they were filed after 10.4.9 was released and so they obviously have not been fixed.

A few things have changed along with the redesign of the Apple Bug Reporter. First off, all of the bugs that had previously disappeared from my "My Originated Problems" page have now reappeared. This includes some really old bugs that I had forgotten I had filed, like a bug in Interface Builder in 10.2.2 where modifying an NSTableView would cause Interface Builder to complain of "inconsistencies", and a potential way to activate the root user so that it had two valid passwords. So all of those old red dashed borders have gone away with this ABF review.

Second, all bugs marked as duplicates clearly have the duplicate bug number given along with their state, so I will give those bug numbers here, too.
