updated 11:15 pm EDT, Thu November 4, 2010

10.6.5's release therefore imminent?

In an unusual move, Apple has begun seeding builds of 10.6.6 before the previous version, 10.6.5, has actually been released to the public, according to a report from AppleInsider. The new build contains no specific issues, but contains "developer support for and renewing App Store receipts." This refers to the upcoming Mac App Store that will be a future part of 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and next summer's 10.7 (Lion) release.

The last known build of 10.6.5, 10H568, weighed in at nearly 500MB and contained improvements or fixes for Microsoft Exchange servers, printing,, OpenType, VoiceOver, Bluetooth, iPhoto, Aperture, graphics cards, Address Book and iCal among others.

The build number on the new release is 10J521.The move indicates that public release of 10.6.5 is coming shortly, possibly in conjunction with iOS 4.2 and iTunes 10.1. [via AppleInsider]
