Happy Frickin' Halloween: Mac OS X 10.4.3 Arrives

Oh. My. God.

It's not on VersionTracker or MacUpdate. It's not on Apple's downloads site. There's no combo update as yet. But my Software Update just found Mac OS X 10.4.3. Finally.

I feel dizzy.

Okay, kids. Gotta run. Remember, you heard it here first.

The combo update is out.

Oh, Hallelujah! Just read this:
Pressing Tab while composing a Mail message now inserts a tab character, instead of four spaces.

The 10.4.3 Server Update is also out now. Sweet!

I've installed the update without incident. I will post a new entry soon about my observations on this release.
