Apple Updates Snow Leopard

| Posted in | Posted on

In case you've been ignoring the insistent Software Update window for the past month or so, you should know that Apple recently released Mac OS X 10.6.3, the latest version of snow Leopard. The update includes fixes and improvements big and small, addressing issues ranging from the reporting of system failures to the rules for daylight saving time in Antarctica. The biggest change is probably OS X's new ability to automatically send diagnostic and usage information to Apple when certain system events -- such as force-quitting programs and kernel panics -- happen. The 10.6.3 also patches some security holes, especially in AFP Server, the application firewall, CoreAudio, Disk Image, QuickTime, and other system services.
