New Mac OS X 10.6.1 build makes minor changes [u]

updated 09:45 am EDT, Wed September 9, 2009

Final release coming soon?

(Updated with Snow Leopard Server info) Apple has seeded a new build of Mac OS X 10.6.1 to developers, sources say. Titled 10B504, the build is notably only one increment number over that of the initial seed, released approximately a week ago. The turnaround could indicate a short development track, in contrast with some v10.5.x updates, which took several weeks to reach the public.

Aiding such a view could be the number of fixes in the build. Only two flaws are reported to have been addressed; these include Desktop Services crashes in Finder, and excessive "dyld shared cache" Console messages. The latter was in fact listed as the only known trouble in the previous build, and Apple has cited no outstanding issues at all in 10B504. Dwindling bug lists have often foreshadowed imminent public Mac OS updates.

Update: A new build of Snow Leopard Server, also numbered 10B504, has likewise been released. Changes are said to target directory services, and the software's serial number framework. Like the client build, no known issues are listed in documentation.
