26 July 2011 4,648 views 2 Comments

It’s not unheard for Apple to issue a fix for a just released fix, but I can’t remember miss this big since the days of System 7. Thereupon, the company has updated and re-issued all three versions of its 10.6.8 release, as well as supplemental patches.

Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update v.1.1, 453.55MB
— Enhance the Mac App Store to get your Mac ready to upgrade to 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

• Mac OS X 10.6.8 Supplemental Update, 10.39MB
— Transferring personal data, settings, and compatible applications from a Mac running OS X Snow Leopard to a new Mac running OS X Lion
— Certain network printers that pause print jobs immediately and fail to complete
— System audio that stops working when using HDMI or optical audio out

What are we doing here?

If you haven’t yet applied OS X 10.6.8, download and install v1.1. For those that are already running 10.6.8, then go for the supplemental, which is the delta version of this patch for the patch.

So, what’s different? There’s quite a collection of small fixes and tweaks, though there doesn’t appear to be a real WTF moment buried in there.

• Mac OS X Server v10.6.8 Update v1.1, 518.28MB
