Mac OS X Server has been souped up to version 10.0.4, which improves reliability of Apple File Protocol connections, printer sharing, FTP, mail and directory services. The update also includes MySQL and security updates to Samba.

Migration and administration of users and groups, home directory settings and Macintosh Manager accounts have also improved.

Macintosh Manager 2.0.2 fixes a number of issues in Macintosh Manager, Apple's workstation management technology.

There is also a host of enhancements. Kerberos Security has been improved, as has compatibility with Kerberos client 3.0 and 2.5.1.

Finally, Apple has also released GeForce Graphics 2.1.1 which installs new graphics-card firmware and Mac OS 9 system extensions to enhance performance. A compatibility problem is also addressed by the firmware, with newer versions of NVIDIA system extensions.

Apple advises that graphics-card firmware will be updated only if an older version is detected. Installing the update will cause displays to dim for between 10 to 15 seconds and reappear.
