If you happen to be a Mac user using the latest Snow Leopard OS, it’s time to fire up Software Updater: Apple has pushed out another point update for its OS X operating system.
Read on to find out more.
Apple has released its third point-update, 10.6.3 for the Snow Leopard operating system, which has been touted to fix a huge variety of issues with the OS that early-adopters have had to deal with since the OS’s release.
Most of the problems that are supposedly patched in the 10.6.3 release are system related, like compatibility issues, better Airport reliability, fixes for the Mail application and Time Machine improvements.
However, looking through the entire list of fixes reveals something rather interesting: the update does not seem to provide any security patches for the operating system, is which a little puzzling considering that the Pwn2Own hacking competition had just ended and companies like Microsoft are pushing out unscheduled security fixes.
The Combo Update which is downloadable from Apple’s website here comes in an impressive package of 784mb, but those who use OS X’s built-in Software Update might not have to deal with such a large file download as the combo update also bundles in previous updates as well.
