News of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard’s death were greatly exaggerated and here’s another bit of proof. Apple has released FaceTime 1.0.4, which addresses a bug in the version of the app that only runs on Snow Leopard.

A month or so ago, a pundit caused a dust up by claiming that Apple had abandoned and would no longer offer operating system or app updates for OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Well, that’s obviously not true.

FaceTime 1.0.4 ($0.99, MAS)
— This update resolves connection issues in FaceTime and is recommended for all users of FaceTime on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

Similarly, Apple and its printer partners have also kept pumping out updated printer drivers — Fresh Xerox Printer Drivers for Mac, Fresh Xerox, Epson Mac Printer Drivers— for Macs running OS X 10.6.

While its history is certainly longer than its future, I suspect Apple will continue supporting Snow Leopard at least through the fifth anniversary of its first release (August 28, 2009)…

What’s your take?

    While I’m glad to see that Apple is refreshing printer drivers and other apps for Snow Leopard, Safari is now out of date and not receiving any security updates. Also, anti-virus software has dropped support for Snow Leopard. I’m still running it on my late 2006 MacBook Pro because Lion ran so hot on it, but I also run Ubuntu which has much more of a future.
