Apple Releases Latest Mac OS X 10.6.3 Update

According to a recent update from iPhoneinCanada, Apple has released a new version of Mac OS X 10.6.3, designated as build 10D571. This update, approximately 700MB in size, primarily enhances Graphics Drivers, iChat, QuickTime, and Fonts.

Additionally, the update addresses several issues:

  • Compatibility with OpenGL applications has been improved.

  • Enhancements have been made to the performance of 64-bit Logic.

  • QuickTime X has been updated to enhance reliability, compatibility, and security.

  • Printing reliability and third-party printer compatibility have been enhanced.

  • Problems with copying files to Windows shares have been resolved.

  • Recurring events in iCal, when connected to an Exchange server, now function correctly.

  • Files named with “#” or “&” symbols now open properly in Rosetta.

  • Mail’s background message colors now display correctly when scrolling.

  • An issue causing unexpected waking of machines using BTMM and the Bonjour Sleep Proxy has been addressed.

However, there is a known issue where Safari 4.0.5 may be re-offered by Software Update after upgrading from a previous seed to 10D571. It has been over five months since the last update to Snow Leopard, which was initially released on August 28, 2009, followed shortly by 10.6.1.

The subsequent update, 10.6.2, was released on November 9, 2009.
