Adds fixes issues with Cisco VPNs, Adobe CS3
Apple has reportedly released a second developer beta of Mac OS X 10.6.4, the upcoming update for Snow Leopard. The emphasis in the new code, build 10F46, is said to be on fixing compatibility problems with OpenGL-based apps, as well as various errors linked to first- and third-party software. Some of these include trouble launching Adobe CS3 titles such as Photoshop and Illustrator, and graphics bugs that appear when watching video in DVD Player or using iPhoto's fullscreen mode.
Miscellaneous bugfixes address topics like USB keyboards, Parental Controls, and pairing Apple remotes with Macs. More significant is a remedy for dropped Cisco VPN connections, as Apple is now asking developers to test the reliability of VPN connections in general. The first build of v10.6.4 was released a little over a week ago, and corrected issues in areas like Time Machine and VoiceOver.
