  • Apple Releases New Mac OS X Beta Build (10.6.8)


    Over the past few weeks and months, Apple has been slowly releasing new previews in regards to upcoming Mac OSX updates. Today Apple released its second beta of 10.6.8 to developers. According to developers and numerous sources, there has been no known issues. The Combo Update and Delta Update for the build are approximately 1 GB to download. From those familiar with the build and developers, the build focuses on features such as the Mac App Store, Networking, Drivers, and other components that were recently released to the latest Mac OS X. The first beta to Mac OSX 10.6.8 was released around a week ago. Identified as 10K521, this current beta, 10K524 was a quick follow-up to meet minor issues and bug fixes in the previous version. Not to mention it incorporated more advanced features to the parts listed up.

    In height of all this, Apple is preparing this summer for their release of Mac OS X Lion. From what was expressed, this upcoming OS is supposed to "redefine the Mac OS" for the future ahead. One major update that has been spoken of is that Lion will be incorporating iPhone and iOS-like features. Between June 6-10, Apple will be showcasing Mac OS X Lion at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.

      Am I the only one laughing at the screenshot? Or does that only apply to screenies of the os itself?

      Lion is going to be sweet. I like the layout and everything that's in the beta, but when it actually gets released it'll have some more cool things added in.

      Josh the title makes it sound like 10.6.8 has actually been released. You should add "beta" in there somewhere.
