Concentrates on graphics fixes
Apple has begun distributing a new developer build of Mac OS X 10.6.2, 10C535. The release follows a week after 10C531, and is mainly said to address graphics issues, specifically relating to drivers, QuartzCore and ColorSync. Separately fixed are problems with the Dock; as with the past two builds, Apple has identified no outstanding issues.
Developers are currently being asked to submit feedback on graphics drivers, along with TrackPad preferences and virtual machines.
The company notes that some 148 components have seen fixes in v10.6.2 so far. Among these are Expose, Fonts, Front Row, HFS, iPhoto, MobileMe, OpenCL, QuickTime, Screen Sharing, Spotlight and Time Machine. The upgrade is already a sizable download at 480MB; a public release through Software Update is expected sometime next month.
