New Mac OS X 10.6.3 build sticks with minute changes

updated 04:00 pm EST, Fri March 5, 2010

Apple in cleanup mode?

Apple is seeding a new developer build of Mac OS X 10.6.3, identified as 10D567. The update follows one from last week, and is again said to contain no significant new improvements, or any known issues. Developers are however being asked to test components like Rosetta, iChat, QuickTime, printing and graphics drivers.

When it reaches the public, v10.6.3 should fix several aspects of Snow Leopard, such as compatibility with third-party printers, and security and compatibility in QuickTime X. Users of the 64-bit version of Logic Pro should see better performance. It is not clear when the update might be released though, as Apple has made only minimal changes to the developer seed over the course of the past few weeks.

    What??

    Doesn't Apple know anything. You can't create an OS build out of Sticks! You need bricks, otherwise it will blow down!

    maybe I'll get my eSata drive back

    With great effort I installed Snow Leopard over the weekend, only to discover that my eSata drives, attached to the MacBook Pro through a two-port ExpressCard eSata II controlled, had been left dead in the water.

    It just doesn't work.

    So ... Time Machine ... other backups (I like to keep a non-time-Machine backup too, which given the direction Apple is going, seems more and more prudent) ... now will have to be through USB.

    If you haven't "upgraded" to Snow Leopard ... well, maybe give it a second or third thought, that's my rueful advice.

    esata

    Had no problem with my eSATA expresscard in Snow Leopard.

    My biggest issue is with Apple now deciding that 15" laptop users have no need for things like eSATA. That's left to 17" laptops and over-powered MacPros.
