Apple releases new update beta to developers


Apple has released a second beta version of the next Snow Leopard update (10.6.2) to its developers, according to AppleInsider.

According to users of this beta build, the new update has improved almost 150 “general focus areas” since the last update, 10.6.1, was released only weeks ago. These include updates to core services like Time Machine, Spaces and Front Row as well as several applications including the new QuickTime Player, Photo Booth and Address Book.

AppleInsider also reports that the update particularly focuses on Wireless Wide Area Network(WWAN) support for mobile data services and adds enhancements to MobileMe, iDisk, Exchange support and NTFS and WebDAV filesystem support.

Finally, the new update fixes performance and stability issues that are largely tied to drivers and OSX’s OpenCL compiler, includes a number of security patches and bugs including updates to thesoftware update service, printing and parental controls, and fixes a bug caused when switching between applications using the Dock.

Users across the internet have reported several issues with Snow Leopard since its release in August 2009, with the first update, 10.6.1 being issued to users just days after launch. This initial update fixed numerous issues including an outdated version of Adobe Flash that shipped with the operating system.

No expected release date has been issued for the 10.6.2 update at this time.
