New Mac OS X 10.6.3 build targets QuickTime, OpenGL

updated 09:35 am EST, Mon February 8, 2010

May be nearing release

Over the weekend, Apple began seeding a new test build of Mac OS X 10.6.3, developer sources say. Labeled 10D548, the build is said to be little different than 10D538, with similar emphasis on improving the security, compatibility and reliability of QuickTime X, as well as the performance of the Logic audio editing suite. Tweaks are also said to improve compatibility with printers, and apps based on the OpenGL rendering platform.

Developers are now expected to focus testing on printing and iCal, beyond earlier concentrations on AirPort, QuickTime and video drivers. VoiceOver has been dropped from the concern list, and there are no known problems listed for the build. The last point may suggest that the build is on the verge of completion, though the new testing instructions may reveal extra bugs.
