Final update could arrive by Oct. 20th
Apple is seeding a seventh build of Mac OS X 10.6.5 to developers, 10H555. The code makes no significant changes, and has no known issues. Developers are being asked to continue testing many of the same areas as before, in particular printing, QuickTime, Time Machine, 3D rendering and USB devices.
As with other recent seeds of v10.6.5, 10H555 is arriving two weeks after the previous one. The update may be rapidly nearing a public launch, as it has already spent several months in production. Apple is further expected to announce new Macs on October 20th as part of a special press event, and may want to preload the computers with the most recent iteration of Snow Leopard.
