Apple’s Snow Leopard to be Updated Soon

An update to Apple’s latest operating system, Snow Leopard, is probably going to be released to the public in the near future. The private beta, Mac OS X 10.6.3, available to developers, has been undergoing testing. According to sources familiar with the beta versions, Apple is asking developers to focus on certain applications, such as Mail and QuickTime. In an earlier beta version, developers focused on iCal and fonts.

When Mac OS X 10.6.3 is released, there will be a QuickTime update that provides enhanced security and compatibility. There are still some other issues that will hopefully be solved, including a problem with copying files to a shared Windows volume.

Apple has given developers two betas of this update in very quick succession. It normally only does this if the update is due to be released soon or if there is a dangerous glitch in the system. No dangerous glitches have been reported about this update.

    Yeah, but will it (via Apple and Microsoft) finally fix the niggling ‘issues’ with Word for Mac that still seem to be reported on.

    I’ve got friends still on Leopard so that their Word installs/runs trouble-free, rather than ‘upgrade’ to the Snow Leopard. The program is more useful and important to them than the bells-and-whistles tweaks that Apple included in that OS and its subsequent updates.
