Tiger 8A393 has 'Tiger' desktop picture

The Tiger fur desktop picture looks like it'd be used for marketing purposes, too, when Apple finally releases Tiger into the wild. The buglist is slowly getting smaller with each build, however there are still some important things left to do that aren't even mentioned in that list, so I guess we're still safe to say Apple won't release it "nowish". WWDC 2005 is looking like a good (and conservative) candidate, although the build quality of 8A369 may have suggested an earlier release date.
We'll continue to inform you about newer builds of Tiger. 8A393 was released merely a week after 8A385, but Apple's generally considered to keep up the monthly seed for ADC members until they reach the final candidate phase, when more builds will arrive in shorter time.
