First beta of Mac OS X 10.6.3 imminent?

updated 10:25 am EST, Wed December 9, 2009

Potential changes still unknown

Apple's first public beta of Mac OS X 10.6.3 will released to developers by the end of Thursday, sources claim. The build should use the prefix 10Dxx, and initially be limited to a select group of developers, presumably as a means of controlling the amount of feedback. It is not known when a wider developer release will happen, nor when the finished user seed might be expected.

Similarly hidden is what v10.6.3 might address, as few if any OS-related problems have gained major attention. November's v10.6.2 added native Magic Mouse support, while also correcting a prominent bug which would delete data after using a guest account. Snow Leopard updates have been released unusually fast; the OS shipped in late August, and had its first update a little less than two weeks later.

    What does one consider 'major attention'? Whether it has been reported on MacNN? I guess those font/type issues aren't important because they haven't been mentioned on MSNBC or something.

    Testudo, just because you read something on a blog, or counted views on a discussion forum doesn't make it a real issue, or even one that affects a large number of people. Lots of people, like you for instance, make claims about certain bugs or faults that cannot be replicated on stable systems. But you tout them as widespread or pandemic in order to garner attention to your trolling. But we already know that, don't we.

    Re: Issues

    Yes, you're right. I guess all those varying users talking about the font issues are just a bunch of people making things up to make apple look bad. Or they just all happen to be experiencing the same problems due to some fluke only experienced by that entire industry.

    Oh, but there was one blog entry on one security site that reported some major issue with Windows 7, and everyone here ran with it as showing just another hole in another Windows. Yep, must be true. Was on a blog!

    Sorry, I trust the sites I go to like Macintouch, which aren't fanboy sites like MacNN.

    How is this news?

    MacNN is a news site, not a rumour site. On top of that, this isn't even a bleedin' rumour, it's pure guesswork! A fabrication on a slow news day. Why bother?
