If you’re a Mac OS X developer, then chances are pretty good that you have already received the second beta build of Mac OS X 10.6.8 – and it is said that this beta build does not come with any known issues, pointing towards a high chance of an extremely stable release down the road. The Combo Update and the Delta Update for Mac OS X 10.6.8 build 10K524 will weigh in as a 1GB download, and folks who are familiar with it claim that focus areas for the build will comprise of (but not limited to) Airport, Graphics Drivers, Mac App Store, Networking, QuickTime and VPN. Incidentally, the first build of Mac OS X 10.6.8, also known as 10K521, arrived one week back without any details on changes.
It must be said that the most recent update to Snow Leopard arrive this March via Mac OS X 10.6.7, where Apple threw in display fixes for Apple’s early 2011 Thunderbolt MacBook Pros. Additional changes include amendments that were touted to improve the reliability of Back to My Mac, solve issues concerning file transfer to SMB Windows Files Sharing servers, and bust Mac App Store bugs.
Everyone is looking to Apple to roll out a major upgrade to their Mac OS X later this summer with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, and many expect that to happen at the sold out Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco this June.
