Mac OS X 10.6.7 beta 4 released to developers

updated 08:45 pm EST, Thu February 10, 2011

No known issues, testing Mac App Store

Keeping to a recent pattern of weekly updates, Apple late today brought out its fourth beta of OS X 10.6.7, build 10J855, with no known issues but again requesting developers focus testing on the Mac App Store. The new build is available as either a 1GB combo update or a 412.6MB delta. Developers are also requested -- as has been the case with all the 10.6.7 betas so far -- to focus on Airport, Bonjour, SMB file sharing and graphics.

Apple's first beta of 10.6.7 was released on January 20th, with the second one arriving just five days later. The third build, 10J850, appeared on February 2nd. The update is not expected to bring any new features to Snow Leopard, but is likely to include some groundwork in preparation for this summer's expected release of OS X 10.7, codenamed "Lion," which the company has said will bring new features inspired by iOS to the Mac, including making a default full-screen app behavior, iOS-like folders and making several features multi-touch or gesture-oriented.

    bloatware

    It's bloatware because Apple thinks their users must all have high-speed broadband, so they just package up their updates into big giant blobs of data, rather than smaller blobs like others do.

    Which also means there's no way to avoid one part of the patches if it causes you issues. You either take it all or none.

    And if something doesn't work right, it's no problem. You just archive and install the OS, and install the update up to the previous version...
