  • Apple preparing first external builds of Mac OS X 10.6.3


    It may be late in 2009, but there's no discernible end-of-year sluggishness to on the part of those at Apple reportedly working on the first external builds of Mac OS X 10.6.3. The update to Snow Leopard's operating system could arrive as early as this week, although no one knows for sure what changes the update will bring with it.

    According to Apple Insider:

    People familiar with the matter say the forthcoming builds are likely to be released to some developers in the next 48 hours, and carry the expected prefix of 10Dxx. It is not yet known what issues Apple hopes to address with the latest update.
    It's likely a safe assumption, however, that Mac OS X 10.6.3 will similarly serve up a host of additional fixes and patches for detected bugs and security threats known and unknown to general users.

    The new update comes only weeks after the last, which was aimed at correcting a host of nagging problems, one of which was responsible for deleting user account data. As some will recall, the previous update was in beta for approximately one month before its early November release.

    Updates for Snow Leopard thus far have come quickly. The new operating system, released at the end of August, saw the 10.6.1 update arrive less than two weeks later. The next build took about two months before it was released.
    Although Apple has kept Mac users on their toes with a steady flow of updates since Snow Leopard's launch, its possible if not probable that the updates will be fewer and farther apart in the future. Although the update is eagerly anticipated, many Apple fans are far too distracted by the day's latest tablet rumors to give much consideration to the looming update.

    Apple Insider is also reporting that checks within the company's chain have led one analyst - that's right, one analyst - to believe that a tablet will launch from Apple in March or April and carry with it a 10.1-inch LCD screen.

      I haven't been paying attention to the supposed tablet to forget about updates. I don't care much for it. But I would really like to know what the new update will fix!

      I don't even use Safari except when on my phone. I mostly use Firefox. It's so much quicker!

      Eh, safari is too cluttered for me. I never even liked it when I had windows, (i used Opera back then). I love safari's simplicity

      Did you mean to say you don't like Firefox because it's too cluttered? lol cuz it sounds like you like the clutterness since it offers simplicity. >.< remember Firefox can be user configured to be simple. The add ons make it cluttered.

      My firefox looks just like my safari browser when you open it. I have not added anything to it.
