Apple seeds first build of 10.4.1

Apple has seeded a first build (8B9) of the first update to Tiger to ADC Select members, our source notes. There are several areas that improvements take place. Basically, 10.4.1 will be a "cleanup" job for Tiger 10.4, about 35 MB in size.

The following stuff is what's being worked on:
- file sharing using AFP and SMB/CIFS network file services
- using DHCP in wireless networks
- user login when accessing LDAP and Active Directory servers
- core graphics including updated ATI and NVIDIA graphics drivers
- synchronization with .Mac
- Address Book, iCal, Font Book, Mail, and Preview applications
- Dashboard widgets: Address Book, Flight Tracker, Phone Book, and World Clock
- creating and burning disk images using Disk Utility and System Image Utility
- compatibility with third party applications and devices

We'll report on 10.4.1 as it's being prepared for a release in mid-May.
