Software Update: 10.6.1 debuts

Although it seems like just yesterday (or at least a few days ago) that Snow Leopard debuted, the hotly anticipated 10.6.1 has just hit the ground running. 10.6.1 introduces a number of bug fixes and tweaks for "the stability, compatibility, and security" of your Mac. Highlights include:
  • Printer compatibility enhancements for printers that do not properly appear in the Add Printer browser.
  • Bug fix for DVD playback (when playback stops abruptly)
  • Bug fix for the Dock (bug prevents removal of icons from the Dock)
  • Bug fix for account set up and sending mail via SMTP servers in Mail
  • Bug fix for Sierra Wireless 3G modems
  • Adobe Flash Player update (new plug-in version 10.0.32.18)
The Flash update is particularly important. "Multiple issues exist in the Adobe Flash Player plug-in, the most serious of which may lead to arbitrary code execution when viewing a maliciously crafted web site. The issues are addressed by updating the Flash Player plug-in to version 10.0.32.18." Further information is available via the Adobe web site.

The download is now live via Software Update.
