Apple Reissues OS X 10.6.3 with Stability Update

In a rare turn of events, Apple has quietly released Mac OS X 10.6.3 v1.1, a stability update for Snow Leopard that’s only required for select systems.According to Macworld, the updated Mac OS X 10.6.3 v1.1 contains improvements to QuickTime X, OpenGL-based apps, coloring messages in Mail and printing reliability -- or as they put it, “apparently not enough to warrant a bump to 10.6.4.” We tried updating a MacBook Pro at our end via Software Update, but were not offered the stability update, so your mileage may vary.Other minor issues addressed with Mac OS X 10.6.3 v1.1 include opening files with certain special characters in Rosetta applications, color problems with HD content in iMovie, recurring events in iCal when connected to an Exchange server and improved performance for Logic Pro 9 and Main Stage 2 in 64-bit mode.But that list only scratches the surface -- Apple has posted a lengthy list of small changes and improvements for the stability update on their website, so it might be worth a peek to see if any bugs you’re experiencing have gotten squashed.If Mac OS X 10.6.3 v1.1 doesn’t show up in Software Update for you either, you can head directly to Apple’s support site and download the 785MB-plus combo update. Better safe than sorry, you know?
