Apple Bug Friday Review III: Mac OS X 10.4.5

Friday, 2006-02-17; 00:30:00

Mac OS X 10.4.5 was about a 7 MB update for me, so I doubt it's going to fix many of the bugs that I've reported. Still, one can hope, right? Below is the table you all have come to know and love. Note that I've added a new column that tells when I first reported the bug.
