Apple has just taken the wraps off the latest update for OS X, version 10.4.8. Available via Software Update or website download, this marks the eighth (duh) major update for Apple’s Tiger operating system According to the Software Update blurb, this 211 MB (for the Intel-only, non-combo version) update fixes a number of features, which you can see for yourself after the jump!

The list of fixes and features is as follows:

– connecting to wireless networks using the EAP-FAST protocol
– Apple USB modem reliability
– using OpenType fonts in Microsoft Word
– compatibility with 3rd party USB hubs
– scanner performance
– RAW camera support
– printing documents with Asian language names
– performance of the Translation widget

Doesn’t sound like a whole lot for the 211 MB, but fortunately the Apple support document goes into more detail. Get the update via Software Update, or here for Intel and here for PPC.
