Amidst all this Leopard broohaha, it's good to know Apple can still remember 'the rest of us' still using the now old 'n busted Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. MacRumors and AppleInsider are reporting that Apple has seeded a Mac OS X 10.4.8 update to developers for their ninja code skills to scrutinize. The fairly hefty list of changes, fixes and improvements includes: AFP Server, WebCore, LoginWindow, CUPS and CDSASSL, and ImageCapture, AFP, DVD Player, Graphics and Graphics applications, iCal, iPhoto, Mail (thank you!), Microsoft Word & OpenType fonts, Modem usage, Networking, Printing, Safari and USB. Also on the checklist are double reboots, long reboots and improving localization in various areas.

MacRumors also notes that this early build tips the scales at 305MB for Intel, and 147MB for PowerPC (10.4.7, by comparison, was 133MB and 64MB), though developer seeds like this typically go on a pretty strict diet before going public.

For now, there's no word or even an ETA on when 10.4.8 might land for the rest of us, so give Apple a break and stop furiously refreshing Software Update, couldya?
