Apple begins testing Mac OS X 10.6.1 update

updated 12:20 pm EDT, Thu September 3, 2009

Update follows quickly after Snow Leopard debut

Just days after the operating system's launch, Apple has already begun a closed test of the first major update to Snow Leopard, according to anonymous sources. Mac OS X 10.6.1 allegedly became available to a small number of developers on Monday, specifically groups of coders invited by Apple. Distribution to all members of the Apple Developer Connection could begin within a week or two, if historical trends serve as a precedent.

It is not known what v10.6.1 addresses, but the update could fix bugs reported by Adobe, which trigger crashes when opening and saving documents, or prevent files from loading when dragged to a Dock icon. Separate problems have included "spinning wheel of death" freezes, and issues with Cisco VPN. A number of apps have meanwhile proven incompatible with Snow Leopard to varying degrees.

    Please fix ORACLE Mac OSX client

    OH Yes... I bought Snow Leopard, but did not installed because of all that incompatibilities reported. And especially because Oracle Client for OSX not working with Snow Leopard, so until exist a FIX or a new Oracle full client for OSX 64Bits version I will not migrate... :-(

    Well, I use my Mac also for work... And that is a problem when we have system upgrades that blow everything!

    they should have waited to release SL until most of these bugs had been fixed in the first place, instead of releasing it earlier. Would have saved everyone a lot of grief about printers not working, etc.
    I bought SL, but I am waiting to install it until an update it released.
