  • Apple Rolls Out Mac OS X 10.6.8

    On Tuesday, MMi's Matt Savoca posed a burning question within the hallowed forums of MMi: "Hey, Apple…. Where's 10.6.8?"

    Today, Apple answered Matt along with the rest of the Mac world by releasing Mac OS X 10.6.8, the eighth maintenance update for Snow Leopard. It's available now through a Software Update from Apple. All told, it's a release we expected sooner rather than later, especially since the roll out of Final Cut Pro X earlier this week directly referenced Mac OS X 10.6.8

    According to Apple's own encouragement, 10.6.8 update "is recommended for all users running Mac OS X Snow Leopard and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac."

    The fixes referenced by Apple are specifically those that:

    - Enhance the Mac App Store to get your Mac ready to upgrade to Mac OS X Lion
    - Resolve an issue that may cause Preview to unexpectedly quit
    - Improve support for IPv6
    - Improve VPN reliability
    - Identify and remove known variants of Mac Defender

      I don't know if it is only me, but it seems after updating, start up became slower than before.

      I want legacy kernel to come out for this, since I'm running an AMD hackintosh!
